"There is a Konnect product to meet every type of road and rail loading and unloading application."

The range delivers exceptional quality without compromise at highly affordable prices. Included are top and bottom loading arms with all versions featuring advanced designs that are poised to change market expectations across the Globe.

Emco Wheaton has always been a major player in the supply of loading arms for road and rail tankers but is better known for their more technically advanced projects for Refineries and the Marine industries.

That perception is now set to change with Konnect, a range of products that redefines Emco Wheaton’s position in the market and its ability to provide engineering solutions at an affordable price.

Manufactured at the company’s factories in Kirchhain, Germany and Houston, USA, Emco Wheaton has reduced costs by optimising and standardising designs for better economy of production. This has in turn has helped to reduce assembly times dramatically.

“We have reduced our costs considerably, without compromising quality,” said Walter Spitzner, Manager for Distribution Loading Arms. “We have been able to pass these savings on to our customers, but more importantly we have been able to achieve much faster production targets resulting in shorter delivery times.”

Each product in the Konnect range is designed to deliver the lowest possible “whole life” cost to provide exceptional long term value for money. This has been achieved with added value engineering and the addition of the company’s proven D2000 swivel joints which are able to take greater pressure and are considered more reliable than competitive products during the life time of the product.

To complete the package - each new product in the range incorporates a distinctive modern design. Add on total flexibility and customers can be sure that there is a Konnect product to meet every type of road and rail loading and unloading application.
