Chemical Loading Arms

Chemical Loading Arms

Our Chem-Load range of chemical loading arms can handle a very wide variety of substances including chemicals, solvents, paints, foodstuffs (both edible & non-edible), beverages, alcohols, & other liquids that require special handling.

We offer a made-to-measure service when it comes to providing chemical loading arms & can design a specific solution to suit your requirements. From our vast range we can provide top & bottom articulated types, PTFE lined loading arms (ideal for use with corrosive materials such as acids & caustics), heated loading arms using oil, steam or electric tracing, & thermally clad & jacketed loading arms for insulation. The heated system is designed for chemical loading arms where the materials have to be maintained at higher temperatures such as bitumen & some foodstuffs such as chocolate.

Our Chem-Load chemical loading arms can be specified in stainless & carbon steel as well as be specified in various sizes covering a range from 2” to 6”. They operate up to a 15 bar pressure limit, & have a wide minimum & maximum working temperature from -25°C to +85°C.

We can provide a straightforward upgrade of your chemical tanker loading system, a new installation if you’re setting up a new chemical loading facility, or a complete tanker loading solution incorporating loading platforms & tanker access equipment along with loading arms specified in a bespoke way to your business needs.

Chemical Top Loading Arms

Our Chem-Load chemical top loading arms are of an articulated design so as to be flexible & adaptable to where they are sited. They are available in various materials, & can be specified with various optional add-ons depending on individual circumstances.

Chemical Bottom Loading Arms

Our Chem-Load chemical bottom loading arms & unloading arms provide a safer, quicker, & more cost-effective way of tanker & ISO tank loading than a top loading system.

Because the operator loads the chemical tanker at ground level, there are no working at height health & safety regulations to worry about, the arms can be easily moved from one compartment to the next for quicker loading, & setting them up is relatively inexpensive & straightforward.

Our articulated arm makes for a flexible design to suit your space, & they feature a swivel balance system to ensure the arm coupling is always parallel with the tanker connection.


Both chemical top & bottom loading arms can be mounted via a stand post that comes complete with a parking hook & arm safety lock.

Additional options include:

  • Pneumatic control to help with manual handling
  • Auto press-down, which enables the arm to keep in constant contact with the tanker manway as it settles on its suspension whilst being loaded
  • Remote pendant operation for hazardous applications where the operator is required to stay away from the loading process
  • Mechanical lock down
  • Vapour cone & vapour return system for the safe management of hazardous vapours & high level shut-off probes to provide overfill protection of the tankers.
