Floating Suction Systems

 

In a fixed roof storage tank that requires the liquid to be emptied from the top down (to prevent sediment uptake), a float lifts the 'suction' nozzles to the surface, and thanks to full through-bore WESwivel joints the arms pivot with the rising and falling of the level of the liquid.

Special precautions are taken against vortexing of volatile liquid by modifying the nozzles, with external and internal fins that help prevent the motions associated with formation of a vortex.
