Carbis Loadtec Group provides inclusive design, supply and commission packages for road and rail loading arms, tanker access and fall prevention systems, meter skid systems, quick release couplings, dry disconnect couplings and breakaway couplings.

We also provide feed studies and consultancy services for integrated packaged solutions for customers seeking a one stop shop for their liquid transfer needs. This includes meters, controls and terminal automation packages.

Loadtec Engineered Systems was formed in 1996 to provide an expert and very focussed engineering, sales and marketing office for companies wishing to purchase point of transfer liquid handling equipment. It was decided at the outset that we should not be side tracked by peripheral products and goods that detracted from our key objective. In this role we proved Loadtec to be the primary, specialist source for liquid handling solutions.

On 1st September 2019, Loadtec Engineered Systems migrated its personnel and systems to a new company called Carbis Loadtec Group Limited reflecting a new partnership between Sam Carbis Solutions Group and the Loadtec Family.

Sam Carbis Solutions Group is a fourth-generation family business based in Florence, South Carolina and employing over 250 personnel in the fabrication of specialised systems for fall prevention www.carbissolutions.com.  Loadtec Engineered Systems Ltd exclusively represented Carbis for 22 years throughout the world and so were already used to working together, cooperating and developing unique solutions for our customers’ unique applications.

This partnership gives Carbis Loadtec an unrivalled portfolio of fall prevention systems and packages. The range of capability available to Carbis  Loadtec customers means there is no tanker loading or access problem that cannot be resolved with proven equipment and systems. Over the years Carbis Loadtec has significantly grown their Fall Prevention related business and has provided hundreds of systems into Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Carbis Loadtec and Zipfluid Srl are a perfect collaboration. Carbis Loadtec has many years of experience in delivering quality solutions for customer problems. They are recognised as a global brand and are approved suppliers to most of the major engineering houses and global blue chip end users. Zipfluid has a state of the art Loading Arm manufacturing facility in the heart of industrial Europe. They are focussed on innovation, development and manufacture of a wide range of fluid transfer systems to handle all liquids and have a team of engineers and production staff with long and successful histories in the loading arm business.

Carbis Loadtec comprises a team of experienced engineers who have extensive knowledge of tanker loading solutions and safety equipment. Carbis Loadtec also works in partnership with a number of specialist suppliers who provide technical support on projects where detailed knowledge of aspects of the job is required.

If you have a need to bulk load rail or road tankers with any fluid, you need to work with a company who knows the product, the problems, the safety requirements and, most importantly, the solution. You also need that company to treat you fairly and efficiently. Carbis Loadtec Group is the company you need.



Ticked All the Boxes

“When we found out that our local terminal was closing down we needed a simple loading solution to keep our operation going. Last summer, we told Carbis Loadtec our challenge and they came back to us with a solution that ticked all the boxes. They were flexible when we wanted to tweak the specification then worked closely with us to ensure smooth delivery and installation before Christmas.”

Stu IllingworthController, Supply ManagerNorthern Energy

Safer and More Accessible

“This is Ronny Matleano working in Saudi Electric Company and we have a new portable ladder for inspecting the empty tanker which deliver from Aramco to here and I have found out that it is very comfortable than rather going to the tanker’s ladder. We climb it up and going down is so very dangerous situation. It was delivered now today, only today, and we found out this is more safer and more accessible to the tanker inspections if they are empty. Always be a safer condition for working, that’s all. Thank you so much for the Carbis ladder… Now I will demonstrate to you…”

A Positive Addition to our Assets

“We have used the Carbis Loadtec Multi-Modal unit for over 10 years without significant incident and with minimal maintenance effort and cost. It has proved to be a positive addition to our assets.”

A Complete Solution

“When designing our new load out bay, we wanted to address both the food safety aspects of loading bulk food tankers and the inherent safety issues that come with top loading. With the supply of the loading arms and the [Carbis] tanker enclosure systems, Carbis Loadtec were able to develop a unique solution to meet our and our customers’ food safety requirements as well as being able to ensure the safety of our employees.

I was happy with Carbis Loadtec as they delivered a complete solution which met all of our needs. The project went smoothly; it was all on time. When we started looking at the options, the range of solutions went from one extreme to the other… Having a hybrid solution met all our needs without breaking the bank.”

Jim ParkGeneral ManagerNew Britain Oils

A good reference for a safety system

“The Carbis Fall Protection System [a track-mounted gangway system] works well and is actually used for access onto trucks that are not unloading at this station. Drivers go there voluntarily to open ventilation and then drive from there to their unloading spot rather than attempting to climb their own access ladders. A good reference for a safety system is if it is used even without people being pushed, as all people tend to like shortcuts.”

Johan AxbyProject EngineerDow Svierge (Norrkoping site)

Performing well on site

“The [Carbis mobile access] cart is performing well on site for us and operations have not raised any issues with its use. It has proved easy to manoeuvre and has provided us with a safe and stable means of gaining access to the top of the tankers. From a maintenance point of view it is also performing well with no repairs having to be carried out to date.”

Smart, neat and efficient solutions

“Horizon Terminals Limited is an independent bulk liquid storage company with 6,676,400 m3 of total storage capacity, with Terminals owned and operated in Africa, Middle East and South East Asia. We have a diverse portfolio of products and are handling these across marine, truck and rail loading infrastructure.

Alec Keeler Manging Director of Carbis Loadtec conducted an educational talk at the StocExpo MEA 2017 in Dubai, at our ‘HTL Innovation Theatre’ for Technical, Maintenance and Project Managers from across our Terminals and Parent company ‘ENOC’. The educational talk provided a structure which was concise, logical and effective for solutions for working at height and product loading/unloading. Alec has a lot of underpinning knowledge of the subjects, and has clearly designed and developed bespoke solutions for Carbis Loadtec with thought and expertise.

The benefits from having Alec presenting allowed us to not only understand the solutions that Carbis Loadtec can provide but the inherent safety risks and dangers that we Horizon Terminals Limited face when working at height and loading/unloading vessels, road tankers and rail cars. HTL now have the fundamental knowledge to allow personnel to go back to their operations and assess the safety hazards associated with working at height and product loading/unloading, and be able to have workable solutions to mitigate these risks.

HTL looks forward to working with Alec in the future for his expertise and knowledge in the field. We also believe that Carbis Loadtec can provide smart, neat and efficient solutions which will meet our operational and business demands.”

Today we achieved an important milestone of our project, Carbis Loadtec platform assembly and commissioning with the iso tanker.
Thank you all for your continued support during the execution of this platform due to the challenges, especially the weather conditions (snow, wind ,etc.).
Please note this platform has been executed and commissioned in 6 days by our project partners Carbis Loadtec, without any construction safety incident. Well DONE!

Thank you very much to all of you for getting this project done safely. All your work was constantly involving high risk activities with heavy equipment, aerial lift, bad weather conditions and you were able to adapt and work safely with very good preparation and anticipation
