Zipfluid loading and unloading arms for food&beverage: Lanolin

Lanolin is secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep to protect the wool and make it smooth.
It is used in applications in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry for its moisturizing properties.
In the food industry, it is used as food additive and for its polishing effects.


Zipfluid’s proposal for Lanolin 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.
