Marine Loading Arms
Marine Loading Arms play a pivotal role in the maritime industry, facilitating the transfer of various substances, including liquids and gases, between a ship and a terminal. Typically mounted on a jetty or a loading platform, these arms offer a flexible and efficient means of connecting shore-based infrastructure to the ship’s manifold. They are equipped with swivel joints and other articulating features that allow for easy movement and positioning, accommodating the dynamic nature of vessels. EWFM provides Marine Loading Arms balanced via adjustable counterweights, cable pantograph systems, or a separate support construction with a cable pantograph system. Additionally, we offer services such as Marine Loading Arm inspection, servicing, repair, or, if needed, a complete overhaul of your existing system.

Loading Arms and Unloading Arms
EWFM Supply a range of land Loading Arms and Unloading Arms for discharging or filling tank trucks and rail cars. These arms are either bottom or top types of arms. Both types of loading arms are typically made of 3 pipes – respectively called inner arm, outer arm and drop pipe. The size can be from 1” to 6”. These 3 pipes are connected by swivel joints. Swivel joints are required to provide the flexibility needed. The loading arm unfolds to get the required working envelope to load or unload the tanker, and the reverse is to retract or get a minimal space for parking or storage. Both types of loading arms may be mounted on a column or via a plate to an existing wall. Balancing is needed due to the weight of the piping. Balancing of the arm is by a spring balance cylinder. Top loading arms are used to load or unload road or rail tankers. Loading or unloading is done through the manhole on the top of the tanker. Numerous accessories are available to make a loading arm more ergonomic and more effective: press down system, pneumatic up/down system, top level control, safety break valve, purge,…
