A Frame Hose Loader AFH-32-F

This spring balanced hose loader offers the same advantages as the conventional “A”-frame arm except flexible hose is used instead of rigid piping on the secondary arm.
This arm can be staggered to achieve crossover and conformance to the API envelope requirements. “A”-frame hose loaders are normally stored in an upright, near vertical position making it possible to load from both sides of the island. 
In addition to bottom loading, the “A” frame hose loader is often used as a vapor arm in fuel terminals and can be adapted for use in top loading and unloading applications.

  • 2” –4” sizes available
  • Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminum options
  • Low riser mounting heights 
  • Choice of flanged, threaded or all welded construction 
  • Fully customizable

Benefits

  • Easy to operate/maneuver
  • Easily stored away from vehicles 
  • For multiple product applications, it can be mounted close to another arm 
  • Can be safely stored to provide for safe clearance of vehicles 
  • Crossover can easily be achieved

Accessories

Grounding/Bonding – Suggested for many top/splash loading applications. Available as an option on all Loading Arm designs.

Electronic Ground Verification 

The Civacon model 8030 Ground Verification Monitor is compatible with today’s transport ground systems. The monitor is equipped to provide a permissive signal to allow load rack operation and, if ground is lost, to indicate a non-permissive signal and shut down the loading operation.

Safety Breakaway Coupling  

Protects your equipment, piping and personnel in the event of an unintended pull-away. A consideration whenever you are making a tight connection to a truck or railcar.

Quick & Dry Disconnect Couplings

With OPW, you have many options at your disposal for your loading arm termination connections. From the original quick-disconnect Kamlok® coupling to our Epsilon™ dry disconnect coupling, we have a coupling to meet your needs.
