API petroleum couplings are designed for use in petroleum tanker loading. They provide safe, dry connection between the bottom loading arm and the petroleum road tanker, enabling product to be safely loaded. They are used in all petroleum tanker bottom loading applications.
The couplings have safety features built in to prevent loading unless properly connected, and a tapered head to ensure accurate adapter alignment. All API couplings comply with API RP1004 and Atex group II, Cat 2. The couplings are available with a variety of seal materials to ensure product compatibility.
our API coupling is a 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 couplings are more likely to be used on larger high volume oil depots & petroleum terminals.
