These high-quality bottom loading arms can give your operation a variety of benefits that simply cannot be achieved with top loading systems.
Liquip offers some of the best equipment in the industry for loading and unloading petroleum products, chemical, and liquefied gases.
Benefits of Liquip Bottom Loading Arms
For instance, bottom loading can lead to improved safety since the operator is always on the ground. Otherwise, falling off of the vehicle is a constant threat. Bottom loading also creates less turbulence in tank compartments which makes loading and unloading procedures far less dangerous by lessening the generation of static electricity. Bottom loading can also increase loading efficiency by getting multiple compartments loaded simultaneously. This gets your tanks filled faster.
These Liquip loading arms are also easier to assemble and cheaper to build since they allow for quicker connections. This leads to faster overall loading and unloading time. They can be connected via cam and groove fitting, dry disconnect, API coupler, or Acme threaded hammer union. These bottom loading systems can also be adapted to recover displaced vapors during the loading process This helps reduce personal and environmental hazards, and it makes sure that every bit of the transferred products makes it into the compartment. Every drop counts.
Types of Liquip Bottom Loading Arms
Liquip offers three types of bottom loading arms.
- A-Frame. These arms are great for vertical storage where horizontal space is limited and can be tightly packed in lines for maximum efficiency
- Low profile arms. These can perform gravity or pumped discharge of road and rail tankers
- Overhead arms boast a long service life, minimal need for maintenance, and increased safety since they replace hoses that could become trip hazards
These arms are fitted with a two-meter length drop hose. Varying loading arm heights can be accommodated with aluminum or steel drop spools. Each of these arms comes equipped with Liquip’s signature “velvet touch” technology.
