Top Loading railcars and trucks continues to provide an efficient and cost effective method to load and unload in many situations.
A loading system should have sufficient horizontal range to reach the farthest compartment without re-spotting the vehicle. Sufficient vertical movement and drop-pipe lengths to service vehicles of varying heights is also necessary. A properly designed top loading system can achieve this requirement. Top loading can also be used for tight-fill and vapor recovery applications when used with specially designed and engineered components, such as vapor plates, tapered hatch plugs, and inflatable hatch seals.
The 7300 IHS Inflatable Hatch Seal is a device for sealing different hatch openings on tank trucks and railcars, preventing the release of vapors into the atmosphere.
Special top loading arm designs can also be supplied with a wide range of valves, fittings, and instrumentation equipment.
Arm-Tex has a long established reputation in the petroleum, chemical and food industries for providing effective loading and unloading systems for the safe and efficient handling of liquids. We work closely with you to design the best system for your application.
