Bottom Loading Arms
Bottom loading offers benefits which cannot be achieved with top loading designs. Bottom loading takes place on the ground, making it inherently safer for the operator. It also allows for simultaneous loading of several tank compartments, increasing speed and efficiency of loading. Bottom loading is easily adaptable to vapour recovery systems.
E2033 Bottom Transfer Loader
Bottom transfer loaders provide an extended reach that makes them ideal for applications where a vehicle cannot be accurately spotted.
Easy to adjust, super smooth action spring cylinder balance and heavy duty capacity swivel joints enable these arms to reach further without the need for additional support. The spring cylinder balance has up to 95 deg of vertical movement for easy to handle alignment and out of the way parking.
E2123 MYR Link Arm
The E2123 MYR Link Arm features our patented MYR linkage which allows for effortless handling of the outboard section of the loading arm while maintaining a constant height. Standard vertical range of motion for the loading arm is 90° (park position) to 45° (load position).
The E2123 MYR Link Arm can be built for reaches in excess of 12 feet and still park in the near vertical position. Standard arms feature the D2000 World Series Swivel Joint for ultra low maintenance and easy to adjust spring balance. Not recommended where multiple arm cross-over is required.
E2304 Bottom Spring Loader
The E2304 Bottom Spring Loader is especially designed for the bottom loading and unloading of road or rail tankers with all type of fuels. Tanker side connection is achieved with a 4“ API coupler. The loading arm dimensions are designed to allow for covering of the complete API connection area envelope.
Reliable and well proven components:
- EMCO Wheaton D2000 World Series swivel joints
- EMCO Wheaton spring cylinder
- Robust composite rubber hose or Stainless steel braded hose
- EMCO Wheaton API dry break coupler
- Safe working, easy operation, drip-free welded construction
E2386 Bottom Loading Station
Our E2386 loading arm is especially designed to load products where vapor return is necessary. It is suitable for the bottom loading/unloading of road or rail tankers with flange connection or coupling. These loading arms have a long reach and are suitable for applications where tanker connection flange cannot be accurately positioned.
For connection pipes with high weight, the loading arm can be designed with a special 6 swivel configuration with parallel bar and gas spring for balancing the weight of the connection pipe. Because of the robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the precise loading arm balancing, the loading arm is very easy to handle.
E2704 Bottom Unloading Arms for Russian Railcars
The E2704 rail unloading arm is designed for light oil products, chemicals or high viscose products. It is equipped with a special coupler for the unloading of Russian railcars from underneath. The coupler enables a safe and quick connection, independent to the orientation of the adapter lid.
The long reach of the loading arm also enables connection to rail cars when the adapter is not positioned exactly. Due to the low offset of the swivel joints a minimum vertical height is guaranteed.
Rail loading arms for “white products” are unheated, while the loading arms for viscose products “Mazut” are equipped with an internal heating system. This system guides hot product through the loading arm into the rail car through a special telescopic nozzle assembled in the coupler. The robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the spring cylinder balancing gives comfortable and smooth handling of the arm.
E2824 to E2839 Standard Bottom Loading Arms
This type of loading arm is especially designed to load mineral oil or chemical products and is suitable for the bottom loading/unloading of road or rail tankers. The loading arm has a long reach and is suitable for applications where the tanker connection flange cannot be accurately positioned. Because of the robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the precise loading arm balancing, handling of the loading arm is effortless.
E2852 and E2701 Bottom Hose Loading Station
Our Bottom Hose Loading Station enables efficient loading of tank trucks with simultaneous loading of up to five products plus a vapour arm. The loading station is designed to enable a totally flexible operation with unrestricted cross-over of all arms.
The loading arms are equipped with our API Couplers. Our carbon steel swivel joint has a flame hardened ball race way to ensure a long service life.
LNG Bottom Loading Arm
This loading arm is especially designed to load LNG products and is suitable for the bottom loading / unloading of road or rail tankers. The loading arm has a long reach and is suitable for applications where tanker connection flange cannot be accurately positioned.
Because of the robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the precise loading arm balancing, handling of the loading arm is effortless. The design of the stainless steel swivel joints are based on the reliable D2000 and are also equipped with an interchangeable bearing module.
The primary and secondary product seal enable the operator to monitor leakage during the whole operating time of the loading arm. In addition, the ball raceway can be purged with dry gas and the swivel joints are designed to meet the requirements of the OCIMF.
WE2852 World Bottom Hose Loader
Our WE2852 World Bottom Hose Loader is designed for the bottom loading and unloading of road or rail tankers with all types of fuel. Tanker side connection is achieved with a 4“ API coupler. The loading arm dimensions are designed to cover the complete API connection area.
A bottom loading station can consist out of up to 5 product arms. The design allows unrestricted cross over of all arms (see data sheet E2701). A separate loading arm for vapor recovery completes the installation. Our carbon steel swivel joint has a flame hardened ball race way to provide a long service life. For more details see our data sheet swivel joint D2000.
