					?Bulk Handling
Carbis, as a company, was established in 1930 by Samuel Carbis and has, since then,
refined the market for faster delivery at a lower cost in terms of both safety and
manpower. The Carbis bulk handling system has addressed the issues of injury
through the utilisation of articulated pipe systems. This greatly reduces the risk of
'spills' with an associated higher safety margin to workers loading and unloading from
ships and barges at the dockside. For over 20 years the Carbis bulk handling system
has been the preferred method for the transfer of liquid goods. The Carbis website
provides detailed information on the benefits of bulk handling. Go to

The Carbis bulk handling system has now found additional popularity as it is based on
the mainland USA, reducing the necessity for taking into account exchange rates from
offshore bulk handling businesses. Today's unpredictable economy makes it more of a
necessity to take costs and distances into account when hiring equipment for bulk
handling. Take a look at the variety of bulk handling equipment available on the
Carbis website: /pagead/show_ads.js">

Visiting the Carbis website, http://www.carbis.net, provides additional information on
their enhanced standards of production. Carbis do not just supply the domestic market,
but export their bulk handling equipment to a global market, with parts and service
available worldwide and customised to individual requirements as necessary. When it
comes to standardisation of bulk handling equipment, this widespread provision
provides a welcome asset to the marine handling market. The actual design features
swivel joints, with three split flanges to ensure optimal articulation, with pipe sizes of
between 4 inch and 12 inch bore to alternate the liquid flow speed. The articulated
piping is supplied with either manual counterweights or with a complete hydraulic
system. Any fluid or non-cryogenic liquefied gas can be transported through the
articulated piping system, up to the specification of 90% sulphuric acid, including
many hazardous materials and flammable supplies. The piping system is
manufactured from stainless steel, suitable for food grade products, to carbon steel or
alloys, depending on the most appropriate bulk handling system necessary for your
personal requirements. Contact Carbis today for a first rate customer service
experience: http://www.carbis.net. You will not be disappointed.

Suitable for Nearly All Liquids Carbis barge loading arms handle almost any fluid or
non-cryogenic liquefied gas, from water through 90% sulfuric acid, petroleum
products, hazardous materials, flammable materials, food grade products, and much
more. We'll help you choose from carbon steel, stainless steel or other alloys to assure
the most suitable material to handle your product.

Fully Compliant with Engineering and Safety Codes Carbis products meet all design
and construction specifications for marine loading arms as detailed by the OCIMF
(Oil Companies International Marine Forum). They can also meet API and NFPA
requirements. Manufacturing facilities hold the range of certifications to ensure the
proper design and fabrication procedures you'll demand. These include: AISC
Conventional Steel Structures AISC Complex Steel Building Structures AWS D1.1 -
D1.4 ASME B31.3 ASME B16.5 ASME B16.11 ASTM Metallurgy and Sealing
Options Assure Compatibility Your marine loading arm can be fabricated from most
ferrous alloys used in industrial process piping systems. While most are fabricated in
carbon steel and stainless steel, you can specify other metals, as well. Carbis marine
loading arms feature split flange swivel joints that disassemble quickly and easily for
seal change out or maintenance. A full selection of polymers is available, including:
Buna rubber Viton?? Teflon?? (PTFE) EPDM (EPT/Ethylene Propylene) Chemraz??
Kalrez?? Food grade seals and grease (in certain sizes) Accessories to Enhance
Operation and Safety Your marine loading arms can be outfitted with a variety of
accessories to make operation easier and safer. For hydraulic arms, we supply
complete hydraulics packs with control panels. We also offer a variety of remote
control units, position indicators, and over travel alarms. The emergency release
coupling (see photo) is also a popular option for the utmost in safety and
environmental stewardship. The optional emergency breakaway coupling allows the
loading arm to break free of a barge or ship and seal almost instantly to prevent
product spills and equipment damage.

Safety Audits and Inspections Our global leadership in safety and access extends
beyond our products. We're routinely relied upon to conduct safety audits for our
customers, which include most Fortune 1000 manufacturing companies. We often
serve in a unique consulting role for facility design and ongoing safety compliance
programs. Barge Access Equipment

Carbis' barge access equipment is designed and manufactured to meet your specific
needs and provide the safest access possible. Most often, barge access systems require
custom fitting to docks and around existing obstructionsFeatures Equipment can
adjust to variations in tide and barge equipment. Constructed out of marine grade
aluminum. Available as telescoping units for added versatility. Can be operated by
crane, winch, hydraulic, or pneumatic drives.

Mounting Options Include: Pivot mounting - permits access to various locations on
the barge. Limited to the reach from a fixed mounting point. Track mounting - permits
the unit to travel up and down the dock to allow widespread access to one or several
barges. Float mode - allows the barge leeway in drifting under the gangway.
