• Drip Bucket and Bucket Hook:
    A hook on the end of the Drop Tube and a bucket to catch product drips
  • T Deflector:
    A ‘T’ piece fitted to the end of the Drop Tube to deflect the flow as it enters the tank
  • Cone Deflector:
    A Cone fitted to the end of the Drop Tube to spread the flow
    evenly as it enters the tank
  • Drop Tube Handle:
    A manual handle on the Drop Tube for handling the
    loading arm
  • Bonding Straps:
    A hard wired link across each swivel joint to maintain electrical continuity.
  • Balance Mechanisms:
    Arms are balanced by heavy-duty compression spring
    with 90° of total movement. Alternative balance mechanisms available are
    gas strut, counterweight, pneumatic and hydraulic
  • Ground Verification Monitor:
    An explosion proof electrical control system
    to continually monitor static charge accumulation in the vehicle.
    Communicates with the DCS to allow operations to start/carry-on only when
    the static accumulation is below recommended levels
  • Rack Monitor:
    Where applicable. An explosion proof electrical control
    system that continuously monitors the high level liquid sensors in a
    tank/compartment. In the event of a high level signal or a sensor failure the
    monitor shuts down the loading operation
  • Remote Operator:
    To operate the loading valve manually from close to the
    apex of the loading arm
  • Parking Adapter:
    A device to retain the loading arm in it’s parked position
  • Parking Adapter and Drip Collection:
    A Parking funnel attached to the
    loading rake with a drain pipe to a central collection point
  • Position Sensor:
    Electrical explosion proof proximity or limit switch (s) to
    advise the position of the loading arm
  • High Level Detection:
    Electrical explosion proof sensor to advise when the
    liquid has reached a predetermined point
  • Vapour Recovery:
    • Vapour plate and vapour hose:
      Mounted on the Drop Tube of an
      open dome fill operation to divert most of the displaced vapours from
      the tank away from the loading area. Usually includes High Level
    • Vapour Cone and vapour hose:
      Mounted on the Drop Tube of an
      open dome fill operation to divert the majority of displaced vapours
      from the tank away from the loading area. Always includes High Level
    • Piggy Back Vapour Hose:
      For Tight Fill operations, a vapour hose is
      carried by the loading arm and used to divert all the displaced
      vapours away from the loading area
  • Telescopic drop tubes:
    To enable the product to be dispensed in to the tank
    at the lowest level possible. Also used for continuity between the loading arm
    and the tank. Manual and powered
  • Parallel Device:
    Maintains the Drop Tube is a vertical position regardless of
    the position of the Primary Tube. Common use with Vapour Cones
  • Hold Down:
    An assembly to provide a physical lock for when the arm is in
    the lowered and loading/unloading position. Recommended on Variable
    Reach Loading Arms
  • Check Valve:
    Mounted in the Primary to prevent product being drawn back
    in through the loading arm. Also acts as a pilfering deterrent
  • Leak Detection System:
    Monitors each swivel joint for signs of primary seal
    failure to give early warning of a potential leak to atmosphere
  • Stand Post:
    A fabricated stand to which the loading/unloading arm is
    attached. Most large Top Loading Arms and some Bottom Loading Arms
    come with a Stand Post
  • Outboard End Connections to suit the application:
    Hammer Union, Dry-
    Break Couplers/Adapters, Cam and Grove Couplers and Adapters, Lap Flange
  • Purging Points or system:
    To allow an inert product to clear out any
    remaining product in the arm
