Our mechanical Quick Release System provides automatic disconnection of a loading arm 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 system can be used on a variety of loading applications.
The quick release unit is fitted as an integral part of the outboard end (B-dimension) of the loading arm. Both valves are clamped together by a collar assembly. The actuation cam fitted to the double swing joint activates the collar release via the bowden cable.
Also fitted to the double swing joint is a shear pin which prevents accidental release whilst maneuvering the loading arm.
