API couplers are used at petroleum loading racks for bottom loading petroleum tankers. They are mounted on loading arms, with a 4″ TTMA flange connection which then attaches to the API vales on the tanker. The connection interface consists of a two part poppet and plunger design, which ensures a positive spill free connection every time you load.
