What is the function of the marine loading arm?

Connect the terminal and the tanker. With the marine unloading arm, you can avoid the trouble of traditional manual distribution, and complete the distribution of materials quite easily and quickly.

Transfer fluid materials. There may be large-scale natural gas, petroleum, gasoline and other products on the oil tanker that crosses the ocean. The unloading arm can help the fluid material to complete the two-way transmission between the hull and the terminal device.

Sound and light alarm device. In the process of fluid transfer, the unloading arm has a certain swing range, which can satisfy the tanker to move within the normal drift range. In addition, the sound and light alarm device is attached, which also improves the safety in transportation.


How to choose a marine loading arm?

Choose the appropriate structure. There are many different structural forms of unloading arms, and the moving parts and external loads of the arms are also different. Some arms with simple structure are suitable for light-weight ships, and branch double-pipe unloading arms with complex structures and complete systems are more suitable for large-scale ship operations.

Choose a well-known brand. There are generally two reasons for a well-known brand, one is that there are more advertising and marketing, and the other is that the quality is excellent. Either way, it shows that the company has financial and material resources related to after-sales, so it is more secure.

Choose after-sale protection. Large online shops have one or two years of after-sales service period, and offline platforms also have corresponding after-sales guarantee platforms. You should give preference to businesses that you know the actual factory location.


What should I pay attention to when choosing a marine loading arm?

Choose according to the size of the vessel. Different ship sizes have different wingspans, so choose the corresponding ship unloading arm. Small arm-span equipment cannot meet the transmission needs of large ships, and large-scale arm-span equipment is expensive and more suitable for use on matching ships.

Choose according to your needs. The chemical properties, boiling point, density and other properties of the transported fluids are different, and the material of the boom pipe is required to have specific needs.


In short, the choice of marine loading arms cannot be based on their own needs, but the structure and brand scale of the arm span should be evaluated reasonably.
