Marine loading arms: Chemicals

Let’s take a look
Chemical Marine Loading Arm

Historically we started in the chemical market, this was a market where we managed to score one or two loading arms each time in the late 70’s. The basis for an MLA for Chemical application is a support construction with an integral pipe for the product-carrying part.

Technically this offers no further advantages or necessity. Therefore we sometimes apply our double inbourd design in certain cases.

Let’s take a detailed look at this beautiful arm.

Have you seen our accessories?

Hydraulic QC/DC

Hydraulic quick couplers offer the possibility of connecting the marine loading arm to the ship’s manifold by means of a single push button, from a remote distance. They are known in the market as very robust and straight forward connectors.

Emergency Release Coupler

The ERC is part of our range of Emergency Safety Systems (ESS). Designed to provide best possible safety in fluid loading/unloading when using Marine Loading Arms. An ERC provides a fully automatic, safe and spillage free disconnection of the Loading Arm from the ship should the limits of the safe working envelope of the Arm be exceeded.

Swivel joints

The use of swivel joints in loading arms are critical because of the extraordinarily high bending and axial load combination, due to the reach of the loading arm and wind forces. Our swivel joints are developed to withstand all these loads providing the best performance with virtually zero leakage and maintenance.

Have you seen our features?


Double rotating counterweight, in order to keep both inboard & outboard section aligned and in perfect balance.


The parallel is the rigid link between the outboard section and the counterweights, a big advantage of the rigid structure is that the balance is set once in the factory and does not need to be adjusted in its entire lifetime.
