What is a Loading Arm?
Loading Arms are best defined as an easily positioned mechanisms which allows for the easy transfer of liquid(s) from one tank to another.
A common example of a Loading Arm is how crude oil or gasoline is loaded onto tanker trucks or rail cars. The tank truck or rail car gets positioned near the main oil holding tank. A Loading Arm is used to easily connect to the inlet of the tanker truck or rail car. The liquid (oil in this case) is pumped from the main oil holding tank through the Loading Arm and into the tanker. What makes Loading Arms unique is their internal pipe system consisting of rigid piping and swivel joints. This setup allows the Loading Arm to be easily moved into position so that the liquid transfer can begin. Once in position the Loading Arm will stay there until filling is complete. It can then be easily moved out of the way in order to stay clear of moving vehicles and workers. Loading Arms never leak at the joints and can quickly transfer large amounts of liquid, making the filling of tank trucks and rail cars fast, easy and safe.
Different liquid chemicals can cause corrosion of certain materials. Therefore, Loading Arms are sometimes custom made from special materials, materials that will not be affected by the chemical flowing through it.
