Fixed Reach Top Loading Arm
Model 622-BC/722-BC fixed reach top loading arm is used for top filling rail cars and road tankers, where the manhole fill point is at a set position for loading. The 622-BC uses light duty Swivel joints and the 722-BC uses our standard.
This top loading arm design includes, three swivel joints for horizontal and vertical positioning, a compression spring balance cylinder for ease of movement, loading valve with either hold-open or stay-open operation, extension/remote control for outboard loading valve operation, fitted with a vacuum breaker to allow fast drainage. Lastly, the Model 622-BC fixed reach top loading arm can be manufactured in right or left hand configuration, please advise your requirement with your enquiry.
Please note that this is a fixed reach bottom loading arm. Therefore the tanker and 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 variable reach loading arms can often reach multiple fill points without having to move the tanker.
