Manual & Semi-Automatic
There are two options for couplings, manual or semi-automatic. The manual version requires the operator to align and fully engage the coupling onto the tanker manually and is mainly used on sites which do lower levels of tanker loading, such as small oil distribution depots. The semi-automatic coupling allows an easier alignment of the coupling onto the tanker and will “click” into place when connected properly. They are widely used on higher volume oil depots and in all petroleum terminals and refineries. We are distributors of API couplings made by Fortvale and Dixon Bayco, both companies have several decades worth of experience within the petroleum industry. Our API couplings are used by many of the major oil and storage companies such as BP, Shell, Essar, Certas and Nu-star. They offer reliability, durability, and are easy to maintain.
