ISO certification Zipfluid Loading Arms

Biofuels and Biodiesel

Bracci di carico e scarico per carburanti biodiesel e gasolio

Biofuels is a wide group of fuels produced from biological raw materials.
Biodiesel is the most commonly known one: this fuel is derived from vegetable oils and animal fats.
It is employed with diesel engines but can be used also a fuel for heating appliances.


Zipfluid’s proposal for these fuels is a bottom loading arm – our series LA210 or LA250 made of carbon steel and aluminum with Viton seals and quick couplers API RP1004.
Turbine or helix type water meters combined with flow check-valve, electronic heading and any other additional part required to have the measurement system MID approved.
Among the most commonly used accessories: standpost, breakaway valve series VA400, sight glass to check the flow, unidirectional check valve, grounding and overfill monitors (Timm EUS-2).
Bottom loading arms are usually combined with a vapor closed-circuit hose with API coupler (Stanag 3756 or API RP1004) or a vapor recovery arm.
