The floating suctions are used in tanks, above ground or underground, and allow the suction of the clean product near the surface, without the sediments that are normally found on the bottom of the tanks.
The floating suctions are composed of a swivel joint for connection to the tank, intermediate swivel joints, in the case of particular geometries of the tank structure (height greater than the diameter), and of a float unit that allows to follow the level changes, thus obtaining suction always on the surface of the clean product. The floating suctions can be equipped with some accessories useful for fluid control activities such as: analog level indicator and samples for liquid aspiration in different points of the tank. In case of tanks with floating roofs, the floating arms are supplied with submerged flotation systems and an end part suitable for constant sliding on the roof in each of its filling phases.
In the case of underground tanks, the arm can be equipped with a bottom valve, to avoid the emptying of the vertical suction pipe. Our floating suctions are suitable for use with Jet A1 Fuel, as no yellow metals are used in the production of its components.
