Benzene (C6H6) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Benzene 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.

In the United States, Benzene is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into barges or rail cars via chemical hoses or marine loading arms. Benzene, if not handled properly can be fatal and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required. Additionally, because operators are on top of the vehicles during the loading process, fall prevention is essential, not only for safety but increases throughput.

Benzene is typically transported via barge, or a 10,000-gallon insulated or non-insulated general service tank car. The rails cars themselves are 9′ outside diameter with an overall length of ~47′, with a 6’ x 6′ or 8’ x 8’ centered crash box.
