Benzene is a crude oil component. It can also be made from other chemical compounds derived from crude oil.
It is slightly soluble in water, while it can be mixed in different proportions with other organic solvents.
It is employed as antiknock substance in gasoline but being a potentially dangerous chemical for people’s health and the environment (contamination of groundwater), many countries have already set by law restrictions on the allowed concentration of benzene.
Zipfluid’s proposal for Benzene is a bottom loading arm – our series LA210 or LA250 made of carbon steel with Viton seals and quick couplers (Stanag 3756 or API RP1004). Turbine or helix type flow meters combined with flow check-valve, electronic heading and any other additional part required to have the measurement system MID approved.
Among the most commonly used accessories: standpost, breakaway valve series VA400, grounding & overfill monitor (Timm EUS-2).
Bottom loading arms are usually combined with a vapor closed-circuit hose with API coupler (Stanag 3756 or API RP1004) or a vapor recovery arm.
