Product specifications below

Standard Closed (FIPS) Sampling System

 

  • Flexi-Dip (FIPS) system designed
  • B, MB, MMB and F/C50 MMC vapor-control valves
  • Accuracy of Tape Reading:+/- 1/8 inch (3mm), +/- 0.01% of F.S. tape LGT (F.S. = Full Scale).
  • Tape Lengths: 50 ft. (15m), 75 ft. (25m), 100 ft. (30M), 120 ft. (37M) stainless steel, or up to 30M Tefzel coated anti-static treated type, for chemical applications.
  • Typical Weights: 14 lbs. (6.4 KG).
  • Pressure Limits: 3 psi working, 7.5 psi maximum.

The system is specifically designed for applications areas where the escape of tank vapors during gauging or sampling is prohibited. Once the (FIPS) sampling system is attached to any existing MMC vapor-control valve, it can extract a sample in place but then requires valve closure, removal from the valve and manual dumping of the collected product. Standard sounding and tank bottom dryness checks can also be performed by attaching sampling bobs to the snap hook on the tape end header.

Flexi-Dip RESTRICTED Sampling Tape Systems (Minimal Gas Leakage)

  • Flexi-Dip Restricted Sampling Tape
  • Snap hook, 1/2 liter sampler
  • Std. API brass bob
  • Typical Weights: 14 lbs. (6.4 KG).
  • Pressure Limits: 3 psi working, 7.5 psi maximum.
  • Accuracy of Tape Reading:+/- 1/8 inch (3mm), +/- 0.01% of F.S. tape LGT (F.S. = Full Scale).

  • Application: R-Restricted sampling (1, 1/2- and 1/3-liter) through MMC vapor control-valve.

  • Tape Lengths: 50ft/15mm, 75ft/22.5mm 100ft/30m, 120ft/37m, stainless steel and plastic coated.

  • Typical Weights W/O Sampler: Reel, frame, tape, etc.

    100 ft/30m for 1-liter sampling – 9 lbs (4.1kg).
    100 ft/30m for 1/2-liter sampling – 10lbs. (4.5kg) with adaptor.

Flexi-Dip Restricted Sampling Tape systems are available for use with MMC’s various vapor-control valves. Each Flexi-Dip Sampling Tape comes complete with tape with snap hook, 1/2 liter sampler and Std. API brass bob. Restricted tapes are designed for manual sample collection, sounding and tank bottom dryness checking. Similar to the FIPS system, once the Restricted sampling unit is attached to any existing MMC vapor-control valve, it can extract a sample in place but then requires valve closure, removal from the valve and manual dumping of the collected product. Standard sounding and tank bottom dryness checks can also be performed.
