Hose loading arm
NMF has developed a hose loading arm to give an optimal solution to comply with work regulations and environmental regulations. The current problem with many hoses is, that they
lie on the ground and spill fluids or that trucks run over them. Therefore a lot of costs are made to maintain these systems. With a relatively little investment all these problems can be overcome!
The device prevents that the hose lies on the ground after each loading as it is attached to some wires. This gives several important cost and safety improvements. The first is that the operator doesn’t have to bend all the way to the ground to pick up the relatively heavy hose with connector, which saves him back problems and the company sick leave and money. No residue can flow on the ground as the hose is always tilted a little upwards preventing environmental penalties upon inspections. Trucks cannot not drive over the hose anymore!
Summary: easier to handle, safer, environmental friendly and lowering the cost of ownership.
Swivel joints are not a part of the system, which reduces maintenance even further. Due to the hanging construction the hose will hang safely above ground without the risk that a truck can drive over it.
Summary: environmental friendly, ergonomical and cost reduction.
