Ferrous Chloride (FeC12) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two ferrous chloride 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. 

Ferrous chloride is a pale, greenish, salt-like crystal or powder dissolved in water.  It’s used in textile dyeing, metallurgy, the pharmaceutical industry, and in sewage treatment.  It is also very corrosive to metals and soft tissue.

In the United States, Ferrous chloride is a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) (un)loading operation and is loaded into rail cars via chemical hoses or 3” PTFE lined loading arms. Ferrous chloride 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.
