The loading setting is to maintain the balance during transmission. However, there are different types of balance within the loading facility system. Well. What are the balance types of land loading arms?

The following is the outline:

What are the balance types of land loading arms?

What are the advantages of electro-hydraulic?

What are the advantages of counterweights?

What are the balance types of land loading arms?

Counterweight. The most traditional balance type, the longest used and the most basic. This balancing method does not have any other external requirements, nor does it require the physical and chemical properties of the transport fluid.

Spring cylinder. A balance type that is more modern than counterweights, using additional equipment as the balance infrastructure. There is a certain test of the operating level of the workers and the proficiency of the equipment. At the same time, the quality of the spring cylinder is also particularly required.

pneumatic. The transmission is completed by the pressure difference between the gases. According to physical knowledge, the gas will flow from a place with a high pressure to a place with a low pressure. Therefore, only need to control the air pressure difference between the two places, it can be transmitted by pneumatic.

Electro-hydraulic. It is hydraulically transmitted in the form of electric power through hydraulic equipment inside the pipeline. This transmission method is practical for many loading arm liquids and only requires a little power.

What are the advantages of electro-hydraulic?

No manpower required. Traditional counterweights require real-time manpower detection to adjust the range of counterweights in time. The electro-hydraulic mode reduces the manpower input on duty. Only a single set of constant power is required to continuously complete hydraulic delivery.

Convenient. The electro-hydraulic method can complete the system balance that the traditional counterweight takes a while to complete in a relatively short period of time. Therefore, electro-hydraulic is a convenient and modern balancing mode.

Strong flexibility. The counterweight needs to accurately measure the weight, and the weight used for the counterweight has a certain weight range, which is not easy to move flexibly in a small range. Electro-hydraulic methods can solve this problem.

What are the advantages of counterweights?

Not controlled by electricity. The prerequisite for electro-hydraulic is to have sufficient and continuous power. However, when a power outage is suitable, the traditional balancing method of counterweight can be more effective.

Experience. The balance method of counterweight has the longest history. Therefore, many factories have accumulated a group of experienced craftsmen. Their rich experience can solve various situations that arise in practice.

Strong stability. In the case of choosing the right weight, the balance mode will tend to be stable. Generally speaking, it is not prone to fluctuations caused by voltage instability like electro-hydraulic.

In short, there are many types of balance on land loading arms, which need to be assessed by themselves. Lianyungang Loadarm Industry Co., Ltd. (LICO) is a company committed to the production, manufacturing and sales of fluid loading and unloading equipment. Questions about loading arm balancing facilities are welcome to ask.
