Loading systems consist
of one or more loading
arms / jetties, pumps,
valves and a metering

Tanker loading systems
are complex, both
because of the volume
involved, and because
several loading arms
will normally interact
with the tanker's ballast
system to control the
loading operation. The
tanks must be filled in a certain sequence; otherwise the tanker's structure might be
damaged due to uneven stresses. It is the responsibility of the tanker's ballast system
to signal data to the loading system and to operate the different valves and monitor
the tanks on board the ship.
