MARINE LOADING ARMS
A Marine Loading Arm is a rigid articulated self-standing piping system to transfer liquids or gases from fossil and renewable energies. It is either manually or hydraulically operated. The swivel joints arrangement allows for six degrees of freedom and connection flexibility in all planes. TBG Loading Arms represent an essential link in the bulk transfer of all products with respect to the environment and operator’s safety. Their operating envelopes can cover all ranges of vessels from barges to VLCCs. TBG Loading Arms can accommodate transfers under cryogenic as well as high temperature conditions.
TRUCKS AND RAIL CARS LOADING ARMS
TBG offers a large variety of trucks and rail cars Loading Arms that accommodate different transfer processes, with the aim to optimize the loading or unloading Operations timing and enhancing operator’s safety. The unique combination of swivel joints and rigid pipes makes it the most flexible and innovative solution for liquids or gases transfer.
NIIGATA Swivel Joint is used in a variety of in-plant fluid transfer applications for more than a half century. It permits 360°rotation with smooth flow and enables piping lines to follow movement of any directions that your main facility requires.
Used for more than 50 years, NIIGATA Swivel Joint has featured safe and reliable performance in various industries; steel, food, beverage, chemical, oil, gas, automobile, mining & construction. We can suggest our swivel joints to follow the movement of operating apparatus & facility, wherever you could imagine “Moving”. We always follow up with you.
NIIGATA Butterfly Valves can meet a wide range of application needs with specific conditions such as highly heated, highly-pressured, vacuumed, anti-corrosion, realizing long product life simultaneously. Excellent sealing performance is realized by integral seat structure stuck with backup rings to be more resistant to friction. So that we can provide reliable Japanese valves guaranteed with long product life time. Its light and compact design also helps to install in complicated delivery sites, carrying it easily. Not only our butterfly valves are manually handled but suitable for automation systems and up-sizing requirement.
DRAINING SYSTEMS FOR EXTERNAL FLOATING ROOF TANKS
In 1950, to address the Japanese Oil Industry needs, TBG, together with Niigata Engineering, developed an original swivel joint system for submerged service, designed to accommodate draining lines for floating roof tanks.
This product has steadily occupied almost 100% share of draining systems in Japan for its safe and reliable operation of floating roof storage tanks as well as threatening the world share.
To date, Niigata Floating Roof Tanks Draining Systems have a track record life expectancy of more than 30 Years in operation without issues or accidents occurred.
FLOATING SUCTION UNITS FOR STORAGE TANKS
TBG manufactures Floating Suction Unit (FSU), also referred to as Floating Suction Lines (FSL) or Floating Suction Skimmer (FSS) for use in horizontal or vertical, above ground storage tanks to extract the upper layer of the cleanest liquid without contamination. Floating suction comprises a robust and durable NIIGATA Swing Joint with flange connection which is designed for long service life, trouble free for various shape of storage tanks.
