Xylene (C8H10) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Xylene 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.

In the United States, Xylene is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into rail cars via chemical hoses or 3” carbon steel loading arms. Xylene, if not handled properly can be fatal 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.

Xylene is typically shipped in non-insulated tank cars with 6’x 6’ or 8’ x 8’ center opening crash boxes.
