Styrene Monomer Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Styrene Monomer (un)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. 

Styrene Monomer is a clear, colorless to yellow, oily liquid, with a sweet odor at low concentrations. It’s used to make plastics, paints, synthetic rubbers, protective coatings and resins. As a synthetic chemical it’s also known as cinnamene, ethenylbenzene, phenylethylene or vinyl benzene. Styrene Monomer is a flammable liquid and considered a dangerous fire hazard, due to it’s polymerizing nature. 

In the United States, Styrene Monomer is a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) (un)loading operation and is loaded into rail cars via chemical hoses or 3” stainless steel loading arms. 

Styrene Monomer 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.
