We Simplify the Complex. Coordinating loading arms with gangways, fall protection and all the vehicle variables in truck loading racks or railcar loading platforms can be very complex. SafeRack, however, has the experience, technology and dedication to safety and productivity to help businesses throughout North America navigate those complexities.
SafeRack is the largest supplier of truck loading platforms and railcar loading systems in North America. SafeRack is also the largest loading arm distributor for both OPW and Emco Wheaton. And, regardless of application, we work closely with the piping, electrical and civil designers early in the project to help ensure a successful project. It's a collaborative approach that gets the job done on time and on budget. Every time.
An unsupported boom, variable-reach arm is used where the hatch or hard pipe connection varies in location. It can be used for most truck or railcar loading systems were the length of the arm is not excessive. Options can be added to this arm to further suit your application.
A supported boom loading arm can be designed to be longer and can carry heavier loads such as vapor recovery hatch cover plates and fluid level sensors. This arm is used where the location of the railcar or truck varies due to vehicle variations, spotting issues or multiple hatches.
LPG, ammonia and many other products require the loading arm to mate to a fixed connection on the vehicle. In this application, the main hatch cannot be opened. Depending on your specific needs, there are many different connections and options that can be installed on the loading arm.
An A frame loading arm can be used to load LPG, ammonia or other liquefied gases. Traditionally used for tank-truck bottom loading, the arm allows for many options to be added, such as breakaway fittings or valves. Additionally, the secondary portion of the loading arm can be hard pipe or flex hose.
