Trimethylamine Valve Shutoff

About Trimethylamine (TMA)

Trimethylamine is a colorless, flammable gas with a strong ammonia odor in high concentrations. It is used in agrochemicals, bactericides, catalysts, cation starches, feed additive, ion-exchange resins, pharmaceuticals, plant growth regulators, and surfactants.

Exposure to trimethylamine is irritating to the skin, eye, and mucous membrane. Exposure to high concentrations of Trimethylamine or exposure over an extended period of time can lead to corneal damage.

Accidental Release of Trimethylamine

In the event of an accidental release of trimethylamine, remove any sources of heat and ignition. If it can be done without risk, shut off the gas flow.

Powell Emergency Valve Closure Systems are designed to prevent significant releases of trimethylamine. In the case of an accidental release, the Trimethylamine shutdown system immediately closes the container valve, effectively preventing further release regardless of where it occurs downstream.

It is possible to prevent an accidental release of trimethylamine. Contact us today to discuss your specific application requirements.
