Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is an environmentally friendly chemical with multiple areas of application. It is used for oxidation reactions, bleaching processes in textile, pulp, and paper industries, waste water treatment, exhaust air treatment and for various disinfection applications. It does not yield any harmful byproducts when applied as it decomposes to yield only water and oxygen.

Hydrogen peroxide should be stored in roofed, fireproof rooms where it can be kept cool and protected from the sun. It can, however, withstand summer temperatures as well as severe, cold winter temperatures. It is important that the hydrogen peroxide is protected against all types of contamination.

Aluminum and stainless steel tanks can be installed horizontally or vertically, but for static reasons polyethylene containers must be installed only vertically. For reasons of safety, it is advisable to install larger storage containers in a collection basin. Stainless steel and PVC have proven most effective for piping. Before initial filling, the storage tank and all parts in an H2O2 storage tank installation must be cleaned and made passive.

Descon has acquired extensive experience in the planning and construction of tank installations, which we are glad to make available to our customers. Our Engineering Group carries out the design, construction, and initial filling, including prior cleaning.

For concentrations of 35 and 50 percent by wt., the following classifications apply:

Concentration Of H2O2 IMDG code pursuant to ADR/IRD Orange warning panel
20% to <=60% by wt. 5.1, UN 2014,PG.II 58

For air transportation, only a concentration of 35 percent by weight hydrogen peroxide is permitted by the IATA:

Air transportation

Concentration Of H2O2 ICAO-TI, IATA-DGR
20% to 40% by wt.
>40% by wt.
5.1, UN 2014, PG. II *)
* For packaging to be shipped by air hermetically closure is mandatory. Considering that hydrogen
peroxide steadily emits oxygen, enough ullage must be left in the packaging in order to prevent bursting.

National regulations may differ from one country to another, and are being revised continuously. Customers who want to transport hydrogen peroxide within particular national boundaries should refer to the applicable national regulations.
