Zipfluid loading and unloading arms for basic chemicals: Acrylic acid

Acrylic acid is a product of Basic Chemistry, it is in fact the base of Polyacrylates, that are employed in a wide range of applications.
The acrylic polymers are used, for example, in adhesives, in resins for paints and surface coatings or in acrylic fibers or in water treatment applications.
Acrylic acid is produced mainly from propylene, there are however studies under way regarding the possibility to obtain acrylic acid from biomass.


Zipfluid’s proposal for Acrylic Acid includes top loading arms – our model LA130 made of AISI316L stainless steel with PTFE seals. Mass-flowmeters combined with flow check-valves, electronic heading and any other additional part required for the measurement system.
Among the most commonly used accessories: standpost, an overfill sensor, parking device and grounding monitor (Timm EKX-4).
Top loading arms can be endowed with a vapor recovery cone on the end pipe with a hose to convey the recovered vapor to the arm’s base.
Loading arms for viscous products can be heated by electrical tracing or by a steam jacket, and insulated.
