Emco Wheaton Loading Arms
The Drum Filling loading arm is specially designed to load or unload small compartments such as drums or IBC containers. The loading arm has a long reach and is suitable for applications where the manhole or the connection flange cannot be positioned accurately.
The Drum Filling loading arm can be arrested in the working position. The disadvantages of a traditional hose filling are therefore prevented, i.e. the loading arm cannot slip off the manhole.
The robust design and high quality of the swivel joints provide ease of operation of the loading arm.
