W400 Long Reach (Supported)
W400 long reach top loading arms for petroleum product are ideal for loading/unloading multi compartment tank trucks without having to move the vehicle, or for where significant miss-spotting is likely, i.e. when connecting with a line of coupled rail car tanks. The W400’s longer reach and significant miss-spot capabilities are due to a “supported swivel boom” that extends from the riser on the stand post and to which a fixed reach loading arm is attached. The supported boom allows for even longer range and/or superior weight carrying capacity than the W300 “unsupported” model. The supported boom provides an extra plane of rotation and allows the loading arm to “track” a considerable distance along the centerline of the tank truck or rail car
Available in 2”, 3” x 2”, 3”, 4” and 6”
Available in Left Hand or Right Hand, Up feed or Down feed and Side feed configurations
Typical range of vertical movement is +70° park position to -20° load position. Typical “supported boom” length is 2,000mm, and typical range of primary length is 2,000mm to 2,800mm with a 1,500mm drop tube. All dimensions can be changed to suit each application.
Alternative drop tube arrangements are available for unloading and closed loop applications.
