API couplers provide dry break connection between the loading rack & the petroleum road tanker, enabling it to be safely loaded. They are used in all petroleum tanker bottom loading applications.
We offer a manual & semi-automatic API coupler option. The manual version or our API coupler is lower cost & is mainly used on our oil distribution bottom loading skids where sites may be loading up to 6 to 8 tankers a day, whereas the semi-automatic couplers are more likely to be used on larger high volume oil depots & petroleum terminals.
The couplers have safety features built in to prevent loading unless properly connected, a tapered head to ensure accurate adapter alignment. All API couplers comply with API RP1004 & Atex group II, Cat 2. The couplers are available with a variety of seal materials to ensure product compatibility.
We are distributors for API couplers made by Fortvale & Dixon Bayco, both companies have several decades worth of experience. Our API couplers are used by all the major oil companies & offer reliability, durability, & are easy to maintain.
