The E2704 rail unloading arm is designed for light oil products, chemicals or high viscose products. It is equipped with a special coupler for the unloading of Russian railcars from underneath. The coupler enables a safe and quick connection, independent to the orientation of the adapter lid.
The long reach of the loading arm also enables connection to rail cars when the adapter is not positioned exactly. Due to the low offset of the swivel joints, a minimum vertical height is guaranteed.
Rail loading arms for "white products" are unheated, while the loading arms for viscose products, "Mazut," are equipped with an internal heating system. This system guides hot product through the loading arm into the rail car through a special telescopic nozzle assembled in the coupler.
The robust and high quality design of the swivel joints and the spring cylinder balancing gives comfortable and smooth handling of the arm. Standard arms feature the D2000 World Series Swivel Joint; a heavy duty, low profile joint. A variety of seal configurations and elastomers ensure long life performance for each specific application.
Not recommended for multiple arm crossover. See E2573 and E2304.
