Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Hydrogen Peroxide 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.

What is Hydrogen Peroxide? Hydrogen Peroxide is a pale blue liquid chemical compound that’s slightly more viscous than water. It is used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent, and antiseptic. In very high concentrations it has also been used as a fuel propellant in missiles and rockets.

Hydrogen Peroxide is unstable by nature and slowly decomposes in the presence of light. Because of its instability, hydrogen peroxide is typically stored with a stabilizer in opaque containers.  

In the United States, Hydrogen Peroxide is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and can be transported into rail cars, tank trucks, or Iso-containers via  3” aluminum or stainless steel loading arms or reinforced polyethylene chemical hoses. Tank cars are typically unloaded via a self-priming pump. Railcars can also be unloaded by means of compressed gas, however, this is not a recommended practice because any foreign material in the line can create a dangerous situation.
