Tank Truck Loading & Unloading

We can provide you with complete solutions for tank truck loading and unloading. From tank truck systems and API couplers to loading arms and safety access equipment, we have solutions for almost every application. Our systems meet the highest standards and have been proven throughout the industry for many years.

  • API Couplings

    We have recently enhanced our family of class leading API Couplers – the most comprehensive range of API couplers available in the market today.  Each coupler incorporates a host of patented features, which will provide trouble free operation and will also ensure a clean, spill free loading rack. Our couplers are approved world-wide and recommended by the world’s major oil companies, operating successfully in some of the most demanding environments.
  • Bottom Loading Arms

    Bottom loading offers benefits which cannot be achieved with top loading designs. Bottom loading takes place on the ground, making it inherently safer for the operator. It also allows for simultaneous loading of several tank compartments, increasing speed and efficiency of loading. Bottom loading is easily adaptable to vapor recovery systems.
  • DRY-BREAK

    DRY-BREAK Systems are used in any application where the accidental spillage of liquids must be avoided. Emco Wheaton invented the term "DRY-BREAK" in the 1950s and it has become recognized in the industry as the leading brand of couplings that allow for spill-free disconnect of the two components. The two components are referred to as the "coupler" or "hose unit" and the "adapter" or "tank unit". The combination of Emco Wheaton and TODO DRY-BREAK couplings gives the end user the world's greatest range of styles, materials, and working conditions.
  • Safety Release Systems

    The safety release systems provides automatic disconnection of a loading arm or hose in the event of a tanker accidentally driving away. Simultaneously the product flow will be shut off both upstream and downstream of the disconnection point. The systems can be used in a variety of loading applications.
  • Specialty Loading Arms

    Emco Wheaton engineers have developed a number of loading arms for specialized service applications. The loading arms listed in this section are examples of proven designs and have years of field use. If your application does not quite fit with any of the models listed in this section please consult one of our many trained distributors or you can contact us direct at one of our factory locations.
  • Tank Truck Components

    We are world leaders in the design and manufacture of tank truck equipment. Our equipment is tailored to fit into many operations, vehicles and bulk plant requirements. All components are designed to operate reliably in hazardous conditions, ensuring that your product is delivered without spillage or contamination, at all times protecting the driver and the environment. Our equipment complies with many industry standards and recommended practices, including ISO 9000/2000 approval, ensuring our methods and manufacturing procedures are monitored consistently, resulting in quality approved equipment time after time.

  • Top Loading Arms

    We have been designing and manufacturing loading arms for over 50 years. Our focus on meeting the specific needs of our demanding customer base has resulted in us being able to offer technically advanced solutions to suit almost any application in the world. Our various designs allow us to handle virtually any liquid known to man in a safe and reliable manner. Our loading arms are available in carbon steel, carbon steel / aluminum, stainless steel, low temperature carbon steel, Hastelloy and Titanium. Lining with PTFE and vulcanized rubber can also be provided.
  • Vehicle Access

    The risk of falling from tanker tops is a subject of increasing concern to operators, users and inspectors. Unacceptable levels of injury and fatalities in recent years have made this one of the leading issues within the bulk fluid transfer industries. We provide a range of equipment to ensure operator safety including folding stairways which are normally used to bridge the distance from loading racks to rail tankers.
