Loading Arm Delivery at Lightspeed

By OPW | Jun 14, 2019

Downtime is a killer for terminal productivity. Waiting on less-than-efficient loading arms or for new arms to be delivered is a hiccup that liquid terminal operators cannot afford. While relying on quality arms is a good first step, if those products take too long to arrive and be implemented, it is hard to truly reap their benefits.

On the flip side, greater uptime means more loads leaving the terminal and in the long run, more profit. Quick delivery and functionality are two aspects to consider, but they are not the only aspects. Another major consideration is the specificity of the application. New loading arm delivery options from OPW Engineered Systems address all three of these, and they include:

  1. StandardLine: Ready-made arms in 20 working days or less
  2. ProLine: A range of arms with customizable options available in about 30 days
  3. CustomLine: Infinitely configurable arms engineered to application specifications

Based on customer needs, the three loading arm packages from OPW Engineered Systems are more than just an improved menu of options. These are a complete reimagining of the company’s loading arm business. On top of a full array of terminal equipment, including swivel joints, couplers, electronics and accessories, StandardLine, ProLine and CustomLine solutions make the company a responsive, innovative partner.

This new approach combines the expertise of OPW with faster delivery times, allowing a unique selection of arms, from the straightforward to the ultra-complex. For complex or very specific applications, OPW is able to add fittings to its ProLine arms and able to provide custom materials, paint and finish, weld procedures and testing for CustomLine arms. Whatever terminal staff can imagine, an OPW engineer can create.

Fast paired with flexibility is the ultimate win, and it is something OPW’s competitors have yet to achieve. Meeting the unique needs of every customer - every time - means that OPW has the capacity to support anything from a one-rack storage depot to the oil refinery dotted with 100,000-gallon product tanks
