Chemical loading arms are an essential tool for a safe and efficient range of chemical transfers. In hazardous industrial work, the use of these arms can be lifesaving. Chemical loading arms provide a secure connection between fixed loading facilities and chemical tankers. They can safely transfer high-pressure liquid or gaseous chemicals without risking worker safety or the environment.
Chemical loading arms are a crucial part of the chemical industry, enabling the safe and efficient transfer of chemicals. They are built to withstand harsh chemical environments and offer many benefits, including increased safety, productivity, and cost effectiveness.
Chemical loading arms offer various loading and unloading configurations. These include bottom loading arms for on-ground applications and top loading arms for loading from above.
Chemical top loading arm systems are designed for top filling of road or rail tankers. They use a manhole or any kind of fixed connection like a coupler. These loading arms use high quality swivel joints and precise loading arm balancing to transfer chemicals safely and efficiently.
We offer many types of loading arms designed for loading/unloading chemical media to/from virtually any type of container. This includes single compartment trailer trucks and multi compartment rail cars. Click on the products below to learn more about the various types of Emco Wheaton Loading Arms!
