Important Notes
Usage for the intended purpose
The hydraulically operated loading and unloading system HV 215 is intended solely for filling and draining stationary
and mobile tanks containing pressure liquefied gases.
Its use is permissible only within the allowable pressure and temperature ratings and only if the chemical and
corrosive influences on the equipment are taken into account. Before installing the equipment make sure that the
loading & unloading system is suitable for the intended application and the fluid to be used (corrosion resistance
and chemical suitability).
Modifications to the design may only be made if the manufacturers written permission is obtained.
Any type of use differing from the usage described above must be considered as improper. The resulting risk will
have to be borne by the user alone. The manufacturer hereby expressly rejects any claims for any resulting damage.
The use of external pumps for opening or closing the bottom valves is not permitted.
Safety notes
The loading and unloading system must not be installed or commissioned by anyone other than qualified staff.
Maintenance and service work must only be performed by adequately trained persons who have a recognised
level of competence.
For installation, removal, commissioning, operation and maintenance, every person who works with the loading and
unloading system must have read and understood the complete installation manual. Furthermore, responsibilities
must have been defined clearly and unambiguously and must be adhered to.
The operating company must ensure that, whenever the loading and unloading system is being operated, it is in
perfect condition.
Attention
Working methods that jeopardise safety must not be used!
Danger
If the loading and unloading system is used in an inexpert or improper manner by unqualified staff, it can cause
danger to life and limb for the user or for third parties, possibly resulting in death.
During operation, the bottom valves of the loaded and unloaded tanks are under pressure. During the loading and
unloading procedure all other components are also under pressure. In this condition, screws as well as nuts and
bolts of the loading and unloading system must not be slackened. Liquid or vaporizing fluids might escape and
could cause severe cases of poisoning and environmental pollution.
During the loading and unloading procedure do not leave the installation unattended.
The shut-off valves might be cold during the loading and unloading procedure. Make sure that the operator wears
protective gloves when operating the handwheels.
Any installation or removal work may only be performed when the tank is at zero pressure and completely free of gas.
When carrying out installation and maintenance work, make sure that the tank cannot be operated accidentally.

Important Notes

continued

Warning
Any use of naked flames is expressly forbidden!
Before perfomring any service work inside the tank make sure that the tank is sufficiently ventilated
and all gases have been completely vented. The rules concerning MAC (= maximum allowable
concentration) values at place of work must be strictly applied!
Legal regulations
The configuration of the loading and unloading system HV 215 mounted to the tank car carrying pressurized
gas meets the requirements of DIN 26026 or of EN 12561-3.
The bottom valves HWV 205/1- DN 80 and HWV 215/1- DN 80 fulfill the legal requirements of the RID / GGVSE section 6, constituting the first inner shut-off as defined in these regulations.

Description
The hydraulically operated loading and unloading system HV 215 is designed for filling and draining stationary
and mobile tanks containing pressure liquefied gases.
It is mainly used in tank cars carrying pressurized gases. These tank cars (TC) require a high degree of reliability,
ease of operation and maintenance and a long service life of the associated valves.
The loading and unloading system consists of the two rapid-action bottom valves, the two operating devices, the
shut-off valves, the rail hook and the tension rope. The connecting lines required for operating the loading and
unloading system are either made of hydraulic tubes and hydraulic hoses or entirely of hydraulic hoses.
The bottom valves type HWV 205/1 - DN 80 and type HWV 215/1 - DN 80 (with control unit) are designed for
installation in the valve-mounting flanges located at the bottom of the vessel. Both bottom valves are always
opened or closed together. A manifold connects the bottom valves directly with the shut-off valves. Both valves
can either be used for the liquid phase or the gas phase.
The operating devices consist of a hydraulic hand pump and one indicating piston for the liquid phase and one
for the gas phase. They are attached to the left and right hand side of the tank car, which means that the bottom
valves can be opened from either side of the tank car by actuating the respective operating device.
During the loading/unloading process the rail hook connected to the tension rope keeps the bottom valves in the
open position. In the event of an emergency, e. g. emergency shut-off or inadvertent moving of the tank car, the
rail hook is disengaged from the rail and the bottom valves close instantaneously (rapid-action closing).

Function
The loading and unloading system HV 215 is designed for filling and draining tanks that contain pressure-
liquefied gases.
One bottom valve opens for the liquid phase and the other opens for the gas phase. Both opening processes
always take place simultaneously.
The operating device of the tension rope (e. g. rail hook VZ 10) engaged to one of the rails provides the required
tension of the rope. This tension keeps the ball valve of the control unit of the hydraulic system closed.
The hydraulic hand pump of the operating device BV 110 can then be used to apply pressure to the hydraulic
system. The pressure acts on the actuating cylinders of the bottom valves, forcing the piston to go up and thereby
causing the bottom valves to open.
The current lift position of both bottom valves is indicated separately by the indicating cylinders of the operating
device BV 110.
When the rail hook is disengaged, i. e. when the load on the tension rope is reduced, the hydraulic system opens,
leading to the rapid-action closing of the bottom valves within less than 1 second.
The non-return valve integrated in the operating device BV 110 prevents the premature closing of the bottom
valves caused by leaking fluids in the hydraulic hand pump and the pressure-reducing valve.

Connecting lines
The connecting lines have different lengths due to the different dimensions of the vessels or tanks. Use the table on
page 28 to ascertain the required lengths.
Hydraulic tubes in combination with hydraulic hoses or only hydraulic hoses can be used as connecting lines.
The specific lay-out of the connecting lines depends on the design of the tank car.
See drawings on page 4 and page 28
1. For one possible arrangement weld a transverse pipe-run V (sectional steel, e. g. L-type steel to EN 10056 -1
with dimensions 100 x 50 x 6 mm) between the two frames W of the operating device E.
In this case you can provide a recess at the left side of the transverse support V for the installation of the
hydraulic lines without any kinks.
The requirements and specifications of the local welding authority must be observed.
2. The length and form of the hydraulic tubes have to be matched to the transverse pipe-run V. Install the hydraulic
tubes at the inside (the side facing the bottom valves) of the transverse pipe-run V. The transverse pipe-run V
can then also protect the tubes.
g
3. Use pipe clamps to
fix the hydraulic tubes to the tansverse pipe-run V.
4. To connect the lines to the longitudinal pipe-run use T-type screw joints a .
5. For a flexible connection between the hydraulic tubes and the operating devices E use prefabricated hydraulic
hoses c with a length of approx. 280 mm.
At the side for connecting the operating device E they are provided with a 90 bend and a union nut M16 x1.5
and at the side for connecting the hydraulic tubes they have a stub M16 x1.5 for connecting the hydraulic tubes.
6. Several connecting lines from the transverse pipe-run V to the bottom valves can be made by using the

See drawing on page 4
1. Use the operating device E to open the bottom valves.
2. Loosen the venting plug Q of the actuating cylinder H of the liquid phase in the operating device E
by half a turn.
3. To fill the hydraulic indicating system connect an external oil hand pump with a pressure gauge
(measuring range: 0 - 20 bar) to the filling connection I of the bottom valve for the liquid phase.
Operate the pump until the oil leaves the venting plug Q of the indicating cylinder H without any bubbles.
4. Then fasten the venting plug Q tightly.
5. Continue to operate the external oil hand pump until the indicating piston O is completely moved out
and a pressure of approx. 10 to 20 bar is indicated by the pressure gauge.
6. Finally remove the external oil hand pump from the filling connection I of the bottom valve and open
the hydraulic system by loosening the tension rope. The bottom valve closes automatically.
Follow the same steps when filling the bottom valve for the gas phase.

31

Operation
Service
During the loading process the following actions will take place:
n Opening of bottom valve
n Closing of bottom valve
To open / close the bottom valves operate one of the operating devices E at either side of the tank.
See drawing on page 4
When opening the operating device E remove - if necessary - the customs lead seal from the bolt M.
1. To open the operating device E push the bolt M upwards and then turn it by 90 to one side.
You can now swing down the lid.
2. Make sure that the pump lever of the hydraulic pump F is completely extended towards the front.
3. Connect the rail hook C (e. g. rail hook VZ 10) to the tension rope and engage it in the rail.
The ball valve of the control unit X of the bottom vale will close and the hydraulic system is ready for operation.
4. The up-strokes and down-strokes of the lever of the hydraulic hand pump F in the operating device E
build up pressure in the hydraulic system, causing the two bottom valves to open simultaneously.
After approx. six strokes of the pump lever both bottom valves will be completely open. Check position
of bottom valves: The opening position of the bottom valves is indicated by the two completely extended
indicating pistons O of the indicating cylinders H (lift of indicating pistons approx. 46 mm).
5. Open the lateral shut-off valves A to start the loading/unloading process.
6. The pump lever of the hydraulic pump F is no longer required and must be returned to its original position.
Attention
If only one operating device for the loading system was opened, the lid of the other operating device
cannot be opened when the bottom valves are open.
Close bottom valves immediately after loading or unloading the tank.
See drawing on page 4
7. To close the bottom valves disengage the the rail hook C from the rail. This will loosen the tension rope.
The ball valve of the control unit X opens the hydraulic system and both rapid-action bottom valves will be
closed instantaneously. Be sure that both bottom valves are closed by checking the indicating pistons O
of the indicating cylinders H. Both indicating pistons must be retracted.
8. Then close and latch the operating device E.
9. To finish the loading/unloading process close the shut-off valves A and attach the sealing plugs to the
shut-off valves.
Attention
Note: If the lid cannot be closed, one or both bottom valves are still open!
The inside of the lid of the operating device features a bracket. This bracket prevents the closing
of the lid when one or both bottom valves are open. The lid can only be closed when the indicating
pistons are retracted. The cause of this malfunction must be ascertained and eliminated!
If only one operating device for the loading system was opened, the lid of the other operating device
cannot be opened when the bottom valves are open.

32

Operation

continued

Emergency operation
During emergency unloading the following actions will take place:
n Opening of bottom valve
n Closing of bottom valve
If both bottom valves are to be opened, open first the bottom valve for the gas phase and then the one for
the liquid phase.
See drawing on page 4
1. Unscrew the sealing plug J of the bottom valve located in the bottom of the actuating cylinder B.
A small amount of oil might escape. Put the sealing plug J in the operating device E.
2. Unscrew one or two of the required screws for sealing off the opening for emergency unloading K from
one of the two operating devices E and apply a smear of commercially available lubricant to them.
They are screwed one below the other at the back of the operating device E.
4. Screw the sealing-off screw K into the thread at the bottom of the actuating cylinder B in order to open
the bottom valve.
5. Open the lateral shut-off valves A to start the loading / unloading process.
Warning
Use the emergency operation of the bottom valves only if both hydraulic hand pumps have
failed or, for any other reason, there is not enough pressure for opening one or both bottom valves.
In case of emergency operation a rapid-action closing of the bottom valve is not possible.
If both bottom valves are to be closed via emergency operation, first close the bottom valve for the liquid
phase and then the one for the gas phase.
See drawing on page 4
1. To close the bottom valve unscrew the sealing-off screw for emergency unloading K out of the bottom
of the actuating cylinder B. The spring in the bottom valve effects the closing.
2. Once the emergency loading/unloading process has been accomplished, screw the sealing-off screws K
back into the rear wall of the operating device E.
3. To finish the loading/unloading process, close the shut-off valves A and attach the sealing plugs to
the shut-off valves.
4. Defective bottom valves must be permanently marked in order to avoid inadvertent re-commissioning.
Do not screw sealing plugs J into defective bottom valves.
5. The cause of the malfunction must be ascertained and eliminated by qualified personnel!
Warning
In case of emergency operation a rapid-action closing of the bottom valve is not possible.
When the emergency operation of one or both bottom valves is finished, find and eliminate the
cause for the malfunction. Note that the repeated or continuous application of the emergency
operation is considered as improper usage. The resulting risk will have to be borne by the user alone.
The manufacturer hereby expressly rejects any claims for any resulting damage.
