Zipfluid loading and unloading arms for chemicals: hydrochloric Aci

Hydrochloric acid is an inorganic acid. It is the main component of gastric juice, and is employed in many types of industrial applications, such as: treatment of minerals and raw phosphates, and in organic industrial processes as reagent.
It is used also in the pickling and surface treatment of metals.
Hydrochloric acid is an important reagent in chemical analysis and is classified – as food additive – under number E 507.


Zipfluid’s proposal for Hydrochloric Acid includes top loading arms – our model LA130 made of PTFE lined carbon steel or AISI316L stainless steel with double seals in PTFE or FFKM.
PTFE lined mass-flowmeters combined with PTFE lined 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, the parking device and grounding monitor (Timm EKX-4).
Top loading arms can be endowed with a vapor recovery cone on the end pipe made of a specific plastic material according to the type of fluid to be transferred, together with a PTFE-lined 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.
