KANON SWIVEL JOINTS Absolute leak-free design Swivel joints have been used in the processing industry for a long time. The use of swivel joints in metal loading arms became critical because of the extraordinarily high bending and axial load combination, due to the reach of the loading arm and wind forces. KANON swivel joints are developed to withstand all these loads without leaking. In fact, leakage and regular maintenance is something which is unknown with KANON swivel joints.

SWIVELJOINTS By using KANON swivel joints it is possible to make all kinds of flexible connections using rigid pipes instead of using hoses. KANON swivel joints are available in various materials, including: • Carbon Steel • Low Temperature Carbon Steel • Stainless Steel • Carbon Steel with PTFE, rubber and other linings • Hastelloy • Titanium • Plastics Temperature range of -200° C up to +300° C Pressure range up to 120 bar Sizes from 1” up to 24” Specific features: • Swivel joints can withstand much higher loads than conventional designs due to the special shape of the ball races in combination...

KANON MARINE LOADING SYSTEMS The transfer of all fluids and liquefied gases, into the smallest barge or the largest crude carrier may be safely and dependably accomplished using a KANON Marine Loading Arm system. These loading systems are manufactured to the latest requirements of OCIMF and major oil companies. KANON’s single counterweight balance system enables both hydraulically and manually operated arms to be manoeuvred easily and safely, saving both time and manpower. KANON Marine Loading Arms require minimal maintenance and all product seals can be replaced without scaffolding or dismantling...

MARINE LOADING ARMS Characteristics: • Sizes 4" to 24" diameter • Materials: carbon, stainless and low temperature steels, with PTFE or rubber linings and other special alloys • Temperature range –200° C to + 300° C All KANON arms, including manually operated models, can be provided with a virtually non-spill Emergency Release System. This ensures, that, in the event of an emergency, the liquid and vapour lines are both sealed after disconnection. Once the emergency sequence commences, the arm automatically rises and returns to its parked position, allowing for immediate departure of the tanker...

KANON LOADING ARM MODELS The MLA260 series is the most efficient range of marine loading arms on the market, due to the slim design and the availability of a number of design options to ensure that specific site requirements are met in the best possible way. The MLA260 can be used with virtually all liquids and gases that are capable of being transferred through pipes. The use of a unique double inboard arm has resulted in the smallest design footprint possible whilst ensuring that the loads encountered at the MLA260 base plate are the lowest when compared with any other type of arm. valveblock...

MARINE LOADING ARMS The MLA260 model can be configured with more than one fully separated, selfsupporting product lines, which are designed to absorb all possible forces associated with structural mass, fluid weight, pressure load and wind load. The MLA272 series is specifically used for cryogenic or highly corrosive or toxic chemical service. This type of loading arm has a separate supporting structure with floating product and/or vapour pipe. Both types of loading arms MLA260 and MLA272 consist of a symmetric construction. Full balance of these loading arms is provided by means of a rigid pantograph...

THE AVAILABLE OPTIONS SAY EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE KANON Marine Loading Arms can be operated either manually or hydraulically, depending on product pipe size, physical dimensions and fitted accessories. Hydraulic operation requires 2 drives for inboard and outboard arm movement and 1 drive for slewing (rotation) movement. Operation of the hydraulic loading arm can be effected by means of: • Levers directly mounted to the valve block adjacent to the loading arm stand post – (manual hydraulic operation) • By pushbuttons on either the operators console or on the remote control pendant box/wireless...
