IGATEC-Loading Arms in Brazil

IGATEC International GmbH delivers 3” and 4” Loading Arms to a famous German manufacturer of loading facilities. These Loading Arms are used in Brazil for loading liquid sulfur, tar and BTX (benzene, toluene, xylene).

Loading Arms for tar and liquid sulfur are steam heated to avoid solidification of the fluids. To achieve this, both pipeline and IGATEC-Swivel Joints Type LA are designed double jacket style. To transfer superheated steam at the joints stainless steel hoses are used.

The tar Loading Arm additionally needs a same style heated vapor recovery line. According to this the Loading Arm is designed as a steam heated parallel working Loading Arm. This Loading Arm is characterized by parallel movement of two Loading Arms managed by a special mechanism.
