Floating Suctions

The main contaminant of fuel is water, which is heavier than fuel and will sink. It is therefore undesirable to extract product from a tank via the base as this will suck in water through the lines. The way this is prevented is by introducing a floating suction, which sucks product near but below the surface of the liquid. The suction may have a single arm or multiple arms, depending on the height and diameter of the tank. Other requirements including the actual product in the tank need to be assessed for suitability, especially in relation to its corrosiveness. All floating suctions are uniquely designed by Fuelling Solutions to meet your requirements.
