Ring main system

Advantage:
  • In this system any tank can be discharged by any pump. Thus different grade of the cargo can be loaded.
Disadvantage:
  • It is expensive to build due to the extra length of the piping required.
  • Extra bend is required. Thus decreasing in rate.
  • Risk of leakage from radius of bend exists.
