Long Range Bottom Loading Arm
The model 750-LR Long Range Bottom Loading Arm with an unsupported boom offers increased range of the operating envelope. Where our standard bottom loading arm Model 750/740 inst enough to reach the required connection then this loading arms is the answer. Instead of a drop tube, the final part consists of a composite hose. This allows slight flexibility and range for the user to reach the filling points. We can supply the hose with colour coded hose covers to easily distinguish each of the fluid types.
The arm consists generally of five Swivel Joints. Three 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 final elbow is also installed with a steering handle to allow operators to easily keep control of the arm to position it to the mating tanker.
As standard the Model 750LR is installed with an API female coupler for a quick and easy connection to the tanker according to API RP 1004, this can however be changed to a dry disconnect coupling or others on request.
This bottom loader is also available as a vapour return model. Very often the last arm in the loading bay is used to recover the vapour. This arm can be modified to suit this need with different seal systems and a vapour coupling.
