Strobel Manufacturing designs, engineers and manufactures multipurpose transloaders (MPTs) for the energy industry. MPTs are defined to facilitate the safe and efficient transfer of liquids ncluding crude oil, condensate, natural gas, diesel fuel and ethanol between rail cars and transport trucks. Operational features include metering of product and printing of ticket receipts.
The MPT trailer allows for broad control to offload refined fuels or light crude oil from rail-to-truck truck or truck-to-rail with the implementation of a cane probe sensor to prevent overfill. The self-contained unit has its own power supply via diesel generator. Office space is provided for the transload operator to acquire printed ticket receipts, store records and escape the elements. A roof air conditioner/heater is provided for year-round comfort. Pumping can be done at the rear of the trailer which is equipped with a flip-up weather canopy. Simply enter the desired amount of product to be transferred into the preset controller and the pump will shut off at that quantity. The unit will pump from 300 to 450 gpm depending on factors including product, temperature and head pressure.
