Load/Unload Truck and Rail

Wolfgang Industrial Supply House supplies equipment for all of your terminal needs. From meters, to load arms and API couplers, from racking equipment to grounding equipment we have your answer. Whether it involves loading or offloading, trucks or rail cars, Wolfgang Industrial Supply House is ready to assist you!

Benefits of bottom:

  • Increased safety for the person operating the loading arm since that person remains on the ground and is no longer required to climb to the top of the vehicle, where falls can occur
  • Loading-arm connections to the vehicle are made more quickly so overall loading time is reduced
  • The creation of less turbulence in the tank, reducing the danger associated with the generation of static electricity
  • An overall reduction in vapors, with the capability to fully recover any vapors that may escape
  • Faster tank filling, with a number of compartments able to be loaded simultaneously

Top Loading:

Top Loading railcars and trucks systems should have sufficient horizontal range to reach the farthest compartment without re-spotting the vehicle. Sufficient vertical movement and drop-pipe lengths are also necessary to service vehicles of varying heights. A properly designed top loading system can achieve these requirements. Top loading can also be used for tight-fill and vapor recovery applications when used with specially designed and engineered components, such as vapor plates, and tapered hatch plugs. Special top loading designs can also be supplied with a wide range of valves, fittings, and instrumentation equipment. We serve the petroleum, chemical and food industries providing effective loading and unloading systems for the safe and efficient handling of all types of liquid. We work closely with you to design the best system for your application.
