Minerva Marine Loading Arm (Semi Self Supporting)

About the Minerva Marine Loading Arm:

The Minerva Marine Loading Arm facilitates the transfer of liquid or gaseous products to and from ocean-going or inland waterway tankers. This loading arm is constructed with self-bearing features and achieves balance through a cable pantograph system with two separate counterweights.

Using a low-maintenance and lightweight pantograph system, the two separate counterweights balance both the inboard and outboard arms. The loading arm employs an over dimensioned Model 3-2ST Swivel Joint design to support the forces acting on it. The seals within are easily exchangeable without dismantling the loading equipment or requiring auxiliary equipment.

Designed to bridge large operating ranges, the Minerva has limitations on the amount of dead weight it can handle. It is particularly well-suited for handling aggressive chemicals, extreme temperatures, and diverse pressure applications.
