Truck Loading Arms

Tanker Loading Arms

IFC Inflow offer a range of top and bottom loading arms, which are used for loading and unloading tanker trucks. A multitude of liquids, chemicals, paints, solvents, food stuffs, and beverages can be loaded and unloaded from tankers using IFC loading arms.

Petro-Load Petroleum Loading Arms

The range of Petro-Load petroleum loading arms are available in both top and bottom loading specifications direct from IFC Inflow. These IFC designed loading arms are made to provide a fuel loading solution tailored to the customers’ requirements.

The use of bottom loading as opposed to top loading of petroleum tanker trucks has become a safer option in many countries around the world. Bottom loading provides many benefits, including faster loading rates, simultaneous loading of multiple compartments, and tanker overfill monitoring using Scully monitoring racks, and the added safety of the operator not working at height.

The 445 bottom loading arm has been designed to meet the requirements for petroleum bottom tanker loading, and is the ideal solution for oil terminals and oil distribution depots.

Other than bottom loading arms, IFC design and assemble petroleum top loading arms. Top loading is more common practice in parts of the world where the cost involved to change to bottom loading are too high and where the need to change to bottom loading is not seen as priority. Top loading has many associated risks, including less safe handling of hazardous products, more manual handling and exposure to displaced vapours emitted during petroleum loading.

Chem-Load Chemical Loading Arms

IFC Chem-Load range of chemical loading arms are available as top or bottom loading arms. The Chem-Load chemical loading arms are intended to solve many of the difficulties associated with the handling and safe transfer of chemicals, solvents, paints, inks, and foodstuffs while loading or unloading road tankers and ISO tanks at ground level, or from the tops of tankers.

From a Health and Safety view point, the use of bottom loading arms offers the safest way for rail and road tanker loading and unloading, without the need for working on top of the tanker, thus eliminating any risks associated with working at height.

However, IFC’s top loading arms are designed for companies and industries that still require their products to be loaded into the tops of tankers. The articulated design of the top loading arm provides maximum flexibility and alignment, which can be fitted with optional vapour recovery or overfill prevention systems such as a Scully Monitoring System.

IFC range of top and bottom loading arms provide safe and economic solutions for petroleum liquid transfer into road tankers, rail tankers and ISO tanks.
