Ethylene

Ethylene (C2H4) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

As an Olefin in the Petrochemical family tree, Ethylene is a hydrocarbon chemical made from the processing of petroleum. It is a colorless flammable gas with a faint sweet odor. Ethylene is used in a wide range of industries and applications including food and beverage, specialty glass, the refrigerant in LNG plants, medical anesthetic, and rubber and plastics.

In the United States, Ethylene is a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into road tankers and rail cars via chemical hoses or  top loading arms with vapour recovery. Ethylene, if not handled properly can be fatal therefore 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.
