Mobile Transloading Unit is introduced
Nov 1, 2008 12:00 PM
As the use of transloading continues to increase, shippers that move liquid goods ranging from industrial chemicals to the increasingly popular renewable fuels have been looking for ways to quicken the transloading process while minimizing the risk inherent in liquid handling.
With this in mind, SafeRack LLC has developed its Mobile Transloading Unit.
Designed for fast, safe custody transfer of a variety of liquids, the Mobile Transloading Unit features a four-wheel towable trailer for ease of operation. The unit was designed to incorporate two distinct sides, one created for use in truck transloading and the other for use in railcar transloading, with common transfer equipment — including hoses, filters, strainers, air eliminators, valves, sensors, overfill-prevention equipment, pumps, meters, and emergency shut-off — located on the trailer beneath the transloading racks. When transloading needs to occur, the platform is wheeled between the truck and railcar. The truck side features grounding protection, overfill monitoring, and metering of the custody transfer. The railcar aside allows options for unloading, as well as safe access to the hatch area of the railcar.
For an added level of operator safety while on top of the trucks and railcars, fall-protection safety cages are available on the gangways. However, a standard Mobile Transloading Unit is available without access platforms, gangways, or fall-protection safety cages at a lower price.
