1201 VR Series
Top loading arm + Vapour Recovery
The top loading arm is an articulated piping supported by a mechanical balancing (torsion or compression spring) or pneumatic system, which is used to transfer fuels or industrial liquids in tankers and railway tanks through the top manholes.
The 1201 series top loading arms are used to fill tankers from above where it is necessary to have a wide range of action available. This allows maximum covering of the loading points. In addition, the vapor recovery version permits the return of vapors in the line through a dedicated pipe.
