Hose lines are normally used for the loading of fluids and gases between a mobile unit and a stationary plant in order to flexibly reach various connection points. During loading, the heavy weight of the filled hose including the coupling often makes the handling more difficult and can result in premature wear and high physical stress. The hose loading arm ensures a safe, economical and, in particular, simple operation for the user.
Hose loading arms are engineering services built with industrial grade quality in conjunction with individual services. The hose loading arms are individually configured for very special application scenarios on the basis of a modular system of frame segments. If you are interested, our RS staff will be glad to assist you.
Heavy, heated hose lines and couplings are also installed for comfortable actuation with this system. The special joint mechanics ensure that the permissible minimum bending radius of the hose is not exceeded.
Loading e.g. of chemicals from stationary tankers or tanks into “mobile tankers” is particularly demanding to the operational staff and the equipment. The special design of the joint technology ensures that the minimum bending radius of the hose cannot be exceeded and floor contact is prevented. This way, the service life of the hose is considerably prolonged. Even the seals on the hose line ends are very low-wear so that low maintenance is required that solely depends on the stress put on the hose.
Due to the lower weight, a single person can perform the loading process. Physical damage caused by lifting heavy loads is eliminated, as the hose loading arm bears the weight. It can optionally be supplemented by a lifting device that additionally supports the hose and coupling in the vertical direction.
The underlying modular system allows various standard lengths to be assembled quickly. Optional add-ons easily adapt the system to your individual requirements.
The hose loading arm always directs the hose horizontally. If the hose is drained, an appropriate incline can be set.
