Polypropylene (PP) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

What is Polypropylene? Polypropylene is a thermoplastic “additional polymer” made from the combination of propylene monomers. It is used in a variety of applications to include packaging for

consumer products, plastic parts for various industries including the automotive and medical industries.

 In the United States, Polypropylene, in either powder, flake or pellet form, is typically shipped via hopper cars or dry bulk cargo tankers. A typical hopper car carries 185,000 pounds (84,000kg)  of PP, and a hopper truck transports 45,000 pounds (20,000Kg) on average. Both hopper cars and dry bulk trailers are top-loaded via loading spouts or large diameter flexible hoses.  Bottom unloading is achieved by introducing pneumatic air, and transferred via flexible metal hoses.
