Titanium Tetrachloride (TiCl4) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Titanium Tetrachloride 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.

Titanium tetrachloride is a colorless to pale yellow liquid that has fumes with a strong or pungent odor. If it comes in contact with water, it rapidly forms hydrochloric acid (HCl), as well as other titanium compounds. While not found naturally in the environment, TiCl4 is made from minerals that contain titanium, and used to make titanium metal and other titanium-containing compounds. One such compound is titanium dioxide, which is used as a white pigment in paints, paper, and to produce other chemicals.

In the United States, Titanium Tetrachloride is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into rail cars via chemical hoses or 3” carbon steel by-pass loading arms. Titanium Tetrachloride, 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, fall prevention is essential, not only for safety but increases throughput.
