Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Sodium Hydroxide 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 Sodium Hydroxide? Sodium Hydroxide, also known as caustic soda or lye, and used to make a variety of everyday products such as paper, aluminum, commercial drain, and oven cleaners, and soaps and detergents.

In the United States, Sodium Hydroxide is a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded or unloaded into rail cars via chemical hoses, 3” stainless steel or PTFE lined loading arms. Sodium hydroxide, 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.
