Marine Loading Arms
Loadtec utilises the pantograph link design to provide high quality and robust arms ranging from 4 in. to 20 in. diameter. Apart from the standard temperature range, Loadtec can supply arms that operate at -196°C or +200°C. A feature unique to the Loadtec MLA is the ability to change the 1st and 2nd swivels in-situ without dismantling the arm. This is an important feature which saves many thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the arm. Loadtec also has its own Double Ball Valve Emergency Release system which is installed in the vertical leg. Loadtec hydraulic control systems are manufactured in Western Europe and incorporate mainstream and recognised components.
