Loading arm position monitoring

James Fisher Strainstall's loading arm position monitoring system safeguards cargo handling operations.

Using sensors incorporated into the loading arms to monitor position, James Fisher Strainstall's system ensures operational thresholds are observed.

The monitoring system displays the loading arm position in real-time during cargo handling operations, as well as incorporating historic and event data. The display, mounted in the jetty control room, shows the loading arm’s operational ranges in colour code (green, amber and red) to give a clear indication of its position relative to its safe working envelope.

Should the loading arm operate outside of pre-defined limits, the monitoring system generates both visual and audible alarms to alert operational personnel and enable them to take remedial action. Product transfer rates can also be incorporated for a more detailed operations overview.
