- PetroLoad 445 series– Our PetroLoad 445 Series Bottom Loading Arm, also known as a hose loading arm, offers a safe, secure, and leak-free solution. They are the ideal replacement for first generation arms or can be used as part of an upgrade when converting from top to bottom loading. The 445 bottom loader is also widely used on our petroleum bottom loading skids. The arms benefit from durable and hard wearing carbon steel swivel joints using a 3-part design of high-grade steel outer with a stainless steel inner raceway for maximum corrosion resistance and easy maintenance. The 445 incorporates a sealed for-life, fully adjustable spring balance for ease of use.
- 3 Part Design– The arms benefit from durable and hard wearing carbon steel swivel joints using a 3 part design of high grade steel outer with a stainless steel inner raceway for maximum corrosion resistance and easy maintenance.

Chemical Bottom Loading ArmsIFC ChemLoad range of chemical loading arms suitable for bottom loading. Chemical loading arms are intended to solve many of the difficulties associated with the handling and safe transfer of chemical products, solvents, paints, inks, and foodstuffs while loading or unloading road tankers and ISO tanks at ground level. 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.
Our Range of Bottom Loading Systems
The bottom loading and unloading of liquids from bulk road and rail tankers is an inherently safer way to handle liquids than top loading, as all loading operations are carried out at ground level (our recommended practice). We offer a range of bottom loading unloading solutions, designed to load petroleum and chemical applications. Bottom loading benefits from faster loading times, a reduction in static charge created, safer vapour management, and overfill protection. These systems tend to be a lower capital cost as they remove the requirement for a tanker top access gantry and fall prevention equipment.
