Submersible Pump

Also called a submerged turbine pump (STP).

A pumping unit located inside a storage tank. Because the pump is positioned near the bottom of the tank, below the liquid level, it is normally submerged in the fuel; thus, a submersible pump.

Installations in which submersible pumps are used to transfer gasoline from the storage tanks to pump island dispensers are usually referred to as remote systems.
