Zipfluid loading and unloading arms for food&beverage: Glycerine

Glycerine is a component of oils and fats; at ambient temperature it is a colorless, viscous liquid.
It is used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics sector in the production of creams and as food additive.
In addition, it is used as a reagent in the synthesis of more complex organic compounds


Zipfluid’s proposal for Glycerine includes top loading arms – our model LA130 made of AISI316L stainless steel with PTFE seals and a manhole closing plate on the terminal pipe to prevent the dirt from entering the tankers during loading operations.
Turbine or mass-flowmeters combined with flow check-valve electronic heading and any other additional part required for the measurement system.
Among the most commonly used accessories: standpost, breakaway valve series VA400, sight glass to check the flow, parking device and grounding monitors (Timm EKX-4).
Top loading arms can be endowed with a vapor recovery cone on the end pipe with a hose to convey the recovered vapor to the arm’s base.
Loading arms for viscous products can be heated by electrical tracing or by a steam jacket, and insulated.
