The majority of chemicals loaded globally are via the top of the tanker. The reasons are fairly simple. The tankers are effectively barrels on wheels. They have a hole in the top to fill and a valve outlet at the bottom to drain. In almost all cases the tanker has no built-in high level detection or vapour return facilities. The advantage of top loading is that all the sophistication required can be fitted to the loading arm. Carbis Loadtec have a high level of expertise in Chemical Loading.
