Aniline (C6H7NH2) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Aniline Loading solutions will be identical, the product itself determines much of the critical design criteria that will ensure that optimum safety and productivity can work together in harmony.

Aniline, sometimes referred to as phenylamine or aminobenzene is a colorless, oily liquid that’s typically derived from nitrobenzene reduction and used primarily in the synthesis of dyes and drugs. As an aromatic in the petrochemical family, aniline consists of a phenyl group attached to an amino group, an ideal aromatic amine. It’s also the precursor to many industrial chemicals including polyurethane. The largest application of aniline is in the preparation of MDI (methylene diphenyl diisoyanates). Other uses include rubber processing chemicals, herbicides, dyes, and pigments.

In the United States, Aniline is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into rail cars via chemical hoses or 3” carbon steel loading arms. Aniline, if not handled properly can cause serious injuries and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required. Additionally, because operators are on top of the vehicles during the loading process, robust, well-designed fall prevention is essential to ensure increased throughput, without compromising operator safety.
