The gangway is used for safe and smooth boarding and disembarking of crew during the operation process of modern large oil tankers docked at the pier.
Boarding and disembarking are traditionally completed by the accommodation ladder carried by the vessel itself. For modern large oil pier, especially the dolphin pier without cover, the wharf surface is not completely continuous and the elevation is relatively high. During the working process, the ship bumps frequently and the amplitude is large. Due to the large fender, the distance between the side of the ship and the wharf line is very large.
The RC hydraulic marine loading arm is specially developed to meet the increasing requirements for loading critical media, and it can be designed to have long reach capability.
It adopts a separate support structure with large-sized mechanical bearings. This structure bears all major external load and flexible torque.
The pipeline is attached to the support structure by flexible parts to compensate stress. All swivel joints are identical and their diameter is the same with that of the pipeline. The swivel joints and pipeline are only affected by the stress of internal pressure and weight.
The counterweight balancing system makes the loading arm balance in all directions.
Our product is equipped with three hydraulic driving assemblies for independent movements of the inboard arm and outboard arm as well as the slewing movements. These three interchangeable driving assemblies are operated by an electro / hydraulic control console. We can also install a portable remote control system for the control of arm movements from tanker's deck or from other points of the pier.
This equipment can be equipped with double ball valve, double disk valve or emergency release coupling. These devices will be automatically actuated when the tanker manifold flange moves outside the working safety envelope.
Quick connect/disconnect couplers (QC/DC) can be installed. They make the operation convenient and fast.
A vapour return line can also be equipped as per customer requirements.
You can directly choose this RC hydraulic marine loading arm, or we can design the most suitable product for you according to the detailed, accurate pier, ship, and hydrological parameters provided by you.
