Floating Suctions up to 750mm diameter

Talk to Ship & Shore about our wide range of options available to solve your floating suction requirements.

Tank owners and operators are increasingly using floating suctions to ensure fuel is taken from the highest level where impurities and contaminants are least likely to be situated. In the past, floating suctions were almost exclusively used with aviation fuels. These days many of our customers are installing floating suctions in diesel due to increased cleanliness demands from their customers.

Advice from highly experienced engineers

Ship & Shore is backed by the CTS Singapore and Netherlands engineering team. Our surveys and site inspections are of the highest order, operational expertise is extensive within the team. Whilst floating suctions may seem like a very simple product, buoyancy, flow rates, flow turbulence and minimum deadstock are all affected by the design selected. It's worth getting the experts involved!
