Loading and off-loading fuel from a transport truck is easier than ever with the bottom loading adapters from Franklin Fueling Systems. While loading, the free floating poppet opens under pressure allowing the handle to remain in the closed position. This minimizes spillage caused by leaving the handle in the open position when disconnected from the bottom loader. The adapter handle is offered in aluminum or nylon and provides two open positions of flow allowing the delivery driver to manage the flow rate while off-loading fuel from the truck.

The lightweight, heavy-duty adapter is engineered and tested to meet API RP 1004 specifications. The outer end is made of hard coated aluminum and rotates seven times to maximize the products life and prevent wear that can be caused by terminal off-loading couplings. The inner wall of the adapter is fully tapered, minimizing product retention inside of the valve when off loading is complete. Each model is compatible with all API dry disconnect couplers and are constructed with a standard TTMA 4" tank truck flange and mounting lugs for FFS air interlock valves. Sight glass options are mounted on the side of the valve to maximize visibility during fuel transfer and are available in 1" and 3.5" sizes. Fuel loading and off loading management has never been easier, safer or more efficient.
