Today Tank World gains an expert insight from Colfax into the adoption of positive displacement pumps. This adoption continues to increase because of market trends that require operators to handle multiple fluid types, an ever-growing need for speed-of transfer, better inventory management and increase site profitability. It is important to remember that storage is not the objective of the terminal or tank farm manager; rather, it is the timely delivery of a stored product.
Centrifugal pumps have long been the primary equipment of choice to move fluids in and out of oil terminal, tank farm, and bulk storage facilities. The use of centrifugal pumps stems primarily from their general suitability, widespread familiarity and low price. Yet the adoption of positive displacement pumps continues to increase in this application because of market trends that require operators to handle multiple fluid types, an ever-growing need for speed-of transfer, better inventory management and increase site profitability
