This publication provides recommended minimum performance and mechanical specifications for the design of loading gantry bottom loading couplers used at distribution installations, for connection to petroleum road tankers fitted with adaptors meeting the requirements of EN 13083. It specifies dimensions, coupling action, actuation and other necessary requirements that need to be met to achieve full interchangeability between loading couplers and adaptors of various manufacturers.

It will be of particular interest to loading gantry coupler manufacturers, who are encouraged to implement the design, construction and testing requirements it addresses, and operators of distribution installations.
