Hose loading arm type SLV
NMF has developed a hose loading arm type SLV 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 have to be lifted and movemed by the operator and that trucks can run over them or people stumble over them. Therefore a lot of costs have to be 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. It is hung under a movable arm that can swing the direction the hose has to go. The effort is minimal, one hand suffices.
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. The hose is not dragged over the grond resulting in abrasion and wear. 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. Maintenance is almost none, except for the standard yearly check.
The hose loading arm SLV is supplied without a hose and therefore the available hose can be used again.
There is also a model available for two hoses, the type SLV-2.
The NMF hose loading arm SLV has been patented.
Summary: environmental friendly, ergonomical and cost reduction.
