December 15, 2016 By    


Superior Energy Systems’ transloaders, or portable rail towers, are constructed for maximized safety and efficiency when transferring propane and other natural gas liquids between railcars and tanker trucks.

Built to U.S. Department of Transportation requirements, the transloaders are custom manufactured for specific applications of propane retailers or midstream companies. They offer dependable transfer of product into truck transport containers in 45 minutes or less, according to the company.

The transloaders are trailer mounted and compliant with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 58 and NFPA 70 codes, the company notes. They include both remote pneumatic and electronic shutdown; low-entry and high-exit pressure shutdown; pull-away protection for both the railcar and truck; and quick evacuation connections. Safety is further maximized by the use of NFPA 70-complaint electrical components.
