These loading arms have swivel joints to efficiently transfer the liquid in an easy and safe manner. Safe Harbor provides engineered solutions that synchronize loading arms and fall protection requirements. This turnkey approach ensures a liquid transfer solution that is both productive and safe.
What are the Different Types of Loading Arms?
Safe Harbor provides unique loading arm solutions for a wide range of applications. The following are common types of loading arms:
- Top Loading Arm
- Bottom Loading Arm
- Specialty Loading Arm

A top loading arm unloads liquid from a tank through the manhole on the top of the tank. This type of loading arm is ideal when the liquids transferred are not toxic or harmful. Top loading arms are commonly used in marine, rail, and trucking applications.
A bottom loading arm unloads the liquid from the bottom or rear side of the tank. This type of loading arm is a safer and more affordable option, and they are ideal for loading and unloading petroleum, chemicals, and liquified gas.
