Westmor Industries Rail Loading Arm Designed With Few Moving Parts

Rail Terminal | Rail Loading & Unloading | Westmor Industries

Westmor Industries manufactures rail loading arms for LP and NH3 fuel transfer. The design features a reduction in the 90° swivels and only one 45° swivel, creating a less restricted flow, which generates a higher capacity flow rate. The unit comes pre-assembled for easy install. Built with one swivel for low maintenance, the unit swings out over a rail car and back for storage.

For safety, the rail loading arms are designed with few moving parts and no spring tensioning. The unit’s emergency shut off valve (ESV) is compliant with NFPA code.

The arms require minimum maintenance, needing greasing only once a year. Westmor offers 5 and 10 year maintenance programs for the hoses.

Westmor Industries Adds 80K Truck and Pull to Transport Lineup

Westmor Industries is launching their 80K Truck and Pull, designed to meet market needs in the Western U.S. Built to DOT 406 specifications, the unit is manufactured with a lightweight, ergonomic design.

“The advantage of the 80K transporter is that it designed to provide greater payload and still get into the tight places that it needs to get into,” says Jason Soulon, Westmor’s Branch Manager for its plant in Shawnee, Kansas.

The unit is equipped with dual discharge lines so the driver can deliver fuel from whichever side is easier, depending on the layout of the c-store where the drop is taking place. The truck tank is a 4,500-gallon single compartment tank while the pull tank carries 5,400 gallons in three compartments. To make the truck lighter in weight, Westmor uses aluminum for all the bracketry and rear impact bumpers.

Westmor Industries Releases New Proline Lightweight Trailer Model

Westmor Industries, has launched a new design for its LT Proline™ Transport model that reduces the unit’s weight by up to 5%. Engineered with a 3/16” subframe and no front fender, the updated model allows operators to carry more fuel because of its reduced weight.

To diminish the unit’s weight, Westmor engineers choose to manufacture the rear light box and landing gear with aluminum and swap out the standard hose tubes with a tray. The lightweight model also includes a super single wheel and rim design.

Fuel transporters seeking to drop off more fuel with each load benefit from a lighter transport because of its increased fuel capacity, which creates more efficiency on the road.

Westmor Industries, LLC, Simplifies and Standardizes Blueline® Bobtail Electrical Center

By listening to customer feedback and understanding their repair and replacement needs, Westmor Industries used their industry expertise and product knowledge to determine a way to standardize and simplify the electrical center in their Blueline® Bobtail.

In the industry there isn’t consistency between electrical centers. It can be difficult to find relays, pressure switches, fuses and the electrical connections. They can be located almost anywhere from under the chassis hood to a side tool box and almost any place in between.

Westmor has addressed this challenge by placing everything into one box that is centrally located on the rear, passenger side of the chassis cab. The location is one that stays fairly clean compared to previously used locations and is readily accessible.

This high quality, plug and play unit serves as a centrally located diagnostic system that can be can be easily repaired or replaced. No matter what the electrical shortcoming, it is simple to figure out if it’s a chassis or a bobtail issue. There will be no wasted time searching around for the different components and connection points that Westmor installs.

Due to the technique used to design the electrical center, it will be easier than ever to add in additional bobtail options. This system is standard on all new Blueline® Bobtails.

Westmor Industries, LLC, Provides Convenience, Savings and Simplicity with NEW Blueline® Bobtail Delivery Options!

A goal at Westmor Industries is to always be innovating our product line to provide improved process flow for our customers. Whenever process is improved, the customer becomes more efficient, saving time and money.
Launching today, we have 3 new mobile delivery options available on our Blueline Bobtail; each with a very specific, efficient purpose:
  • Autogas Fill Cabinet, our Mobile Fleet Fueling System. The cabinet is designed to be able to fill small fleets with propane autogas while still allowing the driver to make standard deliveries.

The cabinet is designed for filling smaller cylinders (up to x gallons) using the built in scale while allowing drivers to follow their regular route and make standard deliveries. There is additional cost savings by preventing an extra trip to pick up and drop off cylinders.
  • Service Pack Cabinet, our Mobile Utility Tool Box System. The design allows for convenient access to tools and storage. Choose from many layout options and/or pair it with one of the other cabinets for the ultimate propane delivery system.
Each cabinet saves the cost of purchasing extra bobtails and equipment with a simple add-on cabinet. Drivers are much more efficient by maintaining their regular routes, servicing more customers and using simple equipment manufactured for comfort and ease-of-use.
