Loading Guide

Gravity loading through manhole.

The cargo flows freely from an overhead storage tank through the manhole into the tank container.


‘Closed system’ gravity loading through top or bottom outlets.

The cargo flows into the tank container under gravity, the vapours are vented back to the storage tank via the airline connection.


Pumped loading through manhole.

The cargo is pumped from the storage tank through the manhole into the tank container.

‘Closed system’ pumped loading through top or bottom outlet.

The cargo is loaded by pumping the cargo from the storage tank into the tank container either thru the bottom valve or top valve (and syphon tube).

For sensitive or hazardous cargo, vapours are vented via the air-line connection to a vent tank or back to the storage tank.


Pressure loading through top or bottom outlet.

The cargo is loaded by top pressure in the storage tank. For sensitive or hazardous cargo, vapours are vented via the air-line connection to a vent tank or back to the storage tank.
