EMCO Wheaton’s J0550 vapor coupler is designed to accommodate high flow rates and low pressure drop.
When used as part of the wider tank truck vapor recovery system, this product can speed up loading and unloading times, while also minimising product losses.
This product has the lowest pressure drop in its class and will allow higher flow rates when incorporated into an effective vapor return set up. It’s specifically designed for use on the vapor return arm or hose found at a loading rack.
Coupling to the tank truck’s vapor adapter will open both valves allowing product to flow freely. The high flow characteristics achieved from this design are essential for vapor return when multi-compartment bottom loading is taking place.
Other features include a self-sealing valve and drain plug fitted at the base of the unit for quick release of any accumulated product. The unit also mates to all available vapor adapters made in accordance with API RP1004. An aluminium body makes this unt exceptionally durable to different environments. Hard-wearing brass cams are also fitted as standard to ensure a long service life.
EMCO Wheaton vapor recovery adapters are fitted with Viton seals as standard. The unit is also fitted with a 4-inch TTMA flanged inlet and 4-inch female cam and groove outlet. Total weight is 3.61kg (7.95lbs).
This product is an essential part of tank truck vapor recovery systems. When used properly, it can support more efficient loading and unloading and save businesses money through product that would otherwise be lost.
High-quality parts and a design based on the requirements of operators mean this product has long expected service life. However, even the best products can wear over time, especially when transporting fuel and other corrosive fluids.
That’s why EMCO Wheaton offers a range of repair kits and OEM spares to keep you moving. With these, most maintenance can be carried out in the field but for more serious issues or replacements, it’s better to contact our team through a local service centre.
