Vapor Control Sampling Valves and Equipment for “Closed” Tank Sampling
- Fixed-In-Place (FIP)
- Portable-In-Place (PIP)
- Both Flexi-Dip 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 is a unique MMC Model MBS Fixed-In-Place vapor-control valve with a built-in sampling port. The S series of valves, including the BS and MBS, are simple to install, easy to maintain, 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).
The FIP system, valve, and sampling tape is a gas-tight system. When it is closed and the 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 completely gas-tight. It employs a unique vapor return hose assembly which directs the sample bottle’s vapors back to the tape housing to maintain the system’s gas-tight integrity.
The Flexi-Dip FIP sampling system also includes a sturdy, molded plastic carrying case for convenient transportation and safe storage. Laboratory-grade, unbreakable sampling bottles are also available, along with a convenient sample bottle included with each system.
Portable-In-Place (PIP) Self-Contained Version
The Flexi-Dip Portable-In-Place (PIP) sampling system is designed for use with a wide range of standard MMC vapor-control valves, such as the B and MB units.
In parallel with the FIP version, the PIP sampling system is gas-tight and designed to meet or exceed all existing vapor-control regulations. 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. Laboratory-grade, unbreakable sampling bottles are also available, along with a convenient sample bottle included with each system.
- For the FIP system, valves and sampling tapes are ordered separately
- FIP and PIP systems include either a 1/2- or a 1/3-liter zone sampler device
- Closed-sampling gauging tapes are available in standard lengths of 100 feet or 40 meters
