Bottom Loading Arm Rigid Tube
The Model 750-SPC Bottom Loading Arm Rigid Tube is designed for tank truck loading through a API coupler connection according to API RP1004. The 750-SP model offers bottom loading without the use of a flexible hose, this arm is often used in areas with harsher conditions. The rigid tube means the loading arm is less susceptible of incurring damage. It also has longer durability and less maintenance.
The arm consists generally of 4 Swivel Joints. Two for horizontal movement and two for vertical movement. The configuration allows smooth operation for the user to ensure they can reach the desired fill point. Generally, this is arm is used for Hydrocarbons and therefore Carbon Steel pipe and Swivel Joints are used. We can however manufacture this in other materials on request. As seen in the picture the drop tube is installed with a steering handle to allow operators to easily keep control of the arm to position it to the mating tanker.
Furthermore, the flexibility of vertical movement is made possible through the use of a special light weight offset swivel joint located at the bottom of the drop tube. This loading arm also consists of four more swivel joints. Two of which are used for horizontal movements and two are used for vertical movement, they help extend the arm out to the tanker.
Please note that this bottom loading arm with rigid tube is fixed reach. Therefore, the road tanker or rail car must always be roughly a set distance away from the loading arm for it to work efficiently. It is likely that this will only be able to reach one fill point. However, our long range bottom loading arm can often reach multiple fill points without having to move the tanker.
