Top Loading Arms


Although Bottom Loading Vapour Recovery of fuel tankers following the API 1004 Recommended Practice is now widely accepted globally, there are occasions where the process of top loading road tankers is still applicable.

We provide a range of equipment specifically suitable for top loading applications including manhole covers, emergency valves, pressure vents, etc.
We can also provide information and support on converting from top to bottom loading.


Emco Wheaton Drum Filling Loading Arm

Emco Wheaton Drum Filling Loading Arm

The Drum Filling Loading Arm is especially designed to load or unload small compartments such as drums or IBC containers. The loading arm has a long reach and is suitable for applications where the manhole or the connection flange cannot be positioned accurately.

The drum filling loading arm can be arrested in the working position. The disadvantages of a traditional hose filling are therefore prevented, i.e. the loading arm cannot slip off the manhole.

The robust design and high quality of the swivel joints provide ease of operation of the loading arm.

Emco Wheaton E2611 E2612 - Top Loading Arm for Liquefied Gases

Emco Wheaton E2611 E2612 - Top Loading Arm for Liquefied Gases

The E2611 E2612 Top Loading Arms are especially designed for the loading and unloading of liquefied gases.

The arm is connected to the rail car compartment by a coupler which provides a fast and safe connection to the valves of the rail car.

The E2612 Loading Arm is combined with a second recommended Vapour Arm E2611.

This loading arm is designed with two end pipes for unloading. A gas return arm with one end pipe allows another use of unloading the rail car under pressure.

The robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the spring cylinder balancing provides comfortable and smooth handling of the arm.

The E2611 presents an economic and successful solution for selected applications of loading and unloading liquefied hydrocarbon gases.

In distinction to hoses, the piping provides safety from explosion, driveway obstructions and condensate losses at site.

Emco Wheaton E2630 - Top Loading with Vapour Return Hose

Our E2630 Top Loading Arms with Vapour Return Hose are used for hydrocarbons (e.g. gasoline), toxic and aggressive media.

The E2630 consists of our reliable long reach loading arm combined with a hose for vapour return.

By loading with a vapour return hose, the product vapour will be recovered through the loading arm.

This improves the profitability of the terminal because vapourised product can be recovered and vapour does not pollute the environment.

By loading with a sealed manhole, a high level of protection is achieved for both the operator and the environment.

Legal requirements and regulations (e.g. EU-Norm, German TA-Luft) can be met.

The E2630 is the most economical solution for the process of loading with vapour return. Reliable and easy handling is provided by the small weight and little offset. An E2630 may also be used where the available space is limited, e. g. existing loading stations with low roof heights.


Emco Wheaton E2632 - Parallel Loading Arm

Emco Wheaton E2632 - Parallel Loading Arm

E2632 Parallel Loading Arms with vapour return lines are used for hydrocarbons (e.g. gasoline), toxic and aggressive media.

Two boom loaders are connected together to form this loader. All movements are performed in parallel, hence the name: Parallel Arm. The advantages are that the loading arm can be operated like a single arm, i.e. it is highly manoeuvrable. In addition, both the product and vapour recovery lines are free from pockets.

By loading with the vapour return line, the product vapour will be recovered through the loading arm. This improves the profitability of the terminal because vapourised product can be recovered and vapour does not pollute the environment.

By loading with a sealed manhole, a high level of protection is achieved for both the operator and the environment.

Legal requirements and regulations (e.g. EU-Norm, TA-Luft) can be met.

The E2632 is technically the best solution for the process of loading with vapour return. The flow path is free from traps which would retain the condensed vapours and emit fumes when the arm is not in use. The design allows heating of the product and vapour line.

The design of the vapour line with swivel joints provides easy handling, a further advantage against the use of hoses.


Emco Wheaton E2710 - Top Unloading Arm with Heating Line for Rail Cars

Emco Wheaton E2710 - Top Unloading Arm with Heating Line for Rail Cars

The E2710 Top Unloading Arm with Heating Line is especially designed to heat up and unload frozen products.
It is suitable for the top loading / unloading of rail tankers.

Due to the robust and high quality design of the swivel joints, and the precise loading arm balancing, the loading arm is very easy to handle.

By unloading through the nozzles at the end of the drop pipe, hot product will be sprayed into the vessel.

The frozen product in the vessel will be warmed and can be sucked off through the product pipe. The drop pipe can be turned so that the whole vessel can be reached with hot product.

It is possible to fasten a movable holding bar (covering plate) for a level controller. The up and down movement of the A-length is provided by a pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder.
