Vapor Control Sampling Valves and Equipment for “Closed” Tank Sampling
- Fixed-In-Place (FIP)
- Portable-In-Place (PIP)
- Both Flexi-Dip systems
FIXED-IN-PLACE AND PORTABLE SYSTEMS
MMC’s Flexi-Dip Tank Sampling System is available in two varieties: the Fixed-In-Place (FIP) version designed for use with MMC’s unique S series vapor control valves with built-in sampling ports, and the Portable-In-Place (PIP) version designed for use with any standard MMC vapor control valve. Both Flexi-Dip systems are made entirely in the USA by MMC.
Fixed-In-Place (FIP) Version
The Flexi-Dip Fixed-In-Place (FIP) sampling system, valve and “closed” sampling tape are shown above, left. Above, right is the unique MMC Model MBS fixed-in-place vapor-control valve with its built-in sampling port. The S series of valves (including BS, MBS and MMBS) are simple to install, easy to keep clean and convenient to use. The valves and Flex-Dip FIP system will support the collection of 1/2- and 1/3-liter samples. (2″ Model MBS and BS valves for 1/2-liter sampler and 1 1/2″ Model MMBS valve for 1/3-liter sampler).
The FIP system, valve and sampling tape is a gas-tight system. When its closed tape is attached to any S series valve, it can extract and bottle a sample in place without exposing the sample to the atmosphere. The sample bottle twists off easily for capping, labeling and transportation to the lab.
Designed to meet or exceed all existing vapor-control regulations, the system is totally gas-tight. It employs a unique vapor return hose assemly which directs the sample bottle’s vapors back to the tape housing to maintain the system’s gas-tight intregity.
The Flexi-Dip FIP sampling system also includes a sturdy, molded plastic carrying case for convenient transportation and safe storage with a spare battery and instruction manual. Laboratory grade, non-breakable sampling bottles are also available along with convenient sample bottle carrying racks for 4, 6, 8 or 12 bottles.
Portable-In-Place (PIP) Self-Contained Version
The Flexi-Dip Portable-In-Place (PIP) Self-Contained sampling system (below, left) is designed for use with a wide range of standard MMC vapor-control valves such as the B, MB, MMB and U/B units (below, right). It has a sampling valve built into the base of its barrel to make it a totally self-contained sampling unit. Once the self-contained sampling system with its built-in sampling valve is attached to any existing MMC vapor-control valve, it can extract and bottle a sample in place without exposing the sample to the atmosphere.
Like its sister FIP version, the PIP sampling system is gas-tight and designed to meet or exceed all existing vapor-control regultions. The system also features a unique vapor return hose assembly which routes the sample bottle’s vapors back to the tape housing to maintain the system’s gas-tight integrity. A carrying case, sampling bottles and sample bottle carrying racks are also available.
- For FIP system, valves and sampling tapes are ordered separately.
- FIP and PIP systems include either a 1/2- or a 1/3-liter running sampler device as specified by the customer.
- Closed sampling gauging tapes are available in lengths of 50, 75 and 100 feet and their metric equivalents 15, 25 and 30 meters.
