MMC FLEXI-DIP GAUGING TAPE (RESTRICTED AND OPEN)

FLEXI-DIP Gauging Tapes (Restricted and Open)Restricted and Open Gauging Tapes provide a convenient and accurate means for measuring ullage, product temperature and the oil-water interface. The units are configured to operate in the trimode, bimode, interface or temperature mode. Each instrument is designed to maximize ease of use. A single penetration of each tank can provide comprehensive data about internal tank conditions. When the electronic probe senses hydrocarbon, a steady tone is heard; when sensing water, it emits an intermittent tone. Temperature is shown on an LED display in the hub of the instrument.

A Flexi-Dip standard CLOSED Sampling Tape System is shown above, left; a Flexi-Dip RESTRICTED Sampling Tape System is shown above, right. Typical 1/2-liter stainless steel sampler and a standard six inch API brass sounding bob are shown at center. Included as accessories with either sampling tape system are a 1/2 liter Stn. Stl. sampler, a 6" Brass Bob and a sturdy carrying case.

1.STANDARD CLOSED (FIPS) Sampling System The Flexi-Dip (FIPS) system is designed for use with a wide range of standard MMC vapor-control valves such as the B, MB, MMB and F/C50 styles. 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.

CLOSED SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS
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.


 2.FLEXI-DIP RESTRICTED Sampling Tape Systems (Minimal Gas Leakage) 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.

RESTRICTED SYSTEMS SPECIFICATIONS
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.

3.SAMPLERS ALL STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION (all brass also available). 1-liter - 3.5" O.D. X 10" lg - For 4" size "S" valve, [Model 1LTR-3.5X10LG]. 1-liter - 2.5" O.D.

UI OIL- WATER INTERFACE GAUGING TAPES
For Tankers, Shore Terminals and
Environmental Applications These portable FLEXI-DIP® "UI" gauging tapes provide a convenient and accurate means for measuring ullage and a lower oil-water interface. They are suitable for marine and land-based tank facilities and also for environmental monitoring well applications MMC's UI gauging tapes are capable of detecting all floating and non-conductive hydrocarbons. Each instrument is designed for ease of use. Gauging for liquid or Interface level is accomplished simply and quickly. When the electronic probe is lowered and senses a hydrocarbon, a steady horn tone is sounded and a yellow LED illuminates. When sensing an Oil-water interface, or a heavier than water non-conductive liquid, an intermittent horn tone sounds and a red LED begins flashing.

This gauging system is certified as "Intrinsically Safe" for use in all class IIB hazardous atmospheres

PORTABLE ELECTRONIC GAUGING TAPES
for Petroleum and Chemical Tanks CLOSED (GAS-TIGHT) and RESTRICTED MMC is the world's leading manufacturer of portable instruments for measuring ullage, oil-water interface, temperature, and bottom dryness in shipboard and land-based petroleum and chemical tank systems. All MMC systems are manufactured in the United States and are certified as intrinsically safe by Factory Mutual, BASEEFA, CSA and SAA. A, above, is the front view of the Flexi-Dip CLOSED Gauging Tape. B is the rear view of the same unit. C is the Flexi-Dip RESTRICTED Gauging Tape. All units are shown connected to MMC's type "MB" vapor control valve. FLEXI-DIP Closed Trimode Gauging TapeThe Portable Closed Flexi-Dip measuring tape is a battery-operated electronic unit that is totally gas-tight. When installed in a vapor-control valve mounted on a storage (cargo) tank, it forms a tightly sealed system that prevents toxic vapors from escaping and creates a closed gauging system for that tank. The tape is marked in metric or english units and is anti-static coated (as is the sensor). In addition, the tape is color marked to make tape direction and motion easily seen and to ensure full rewind position. A coiled grounding cable with large alligator clip is standard. This closed system is recognized by many worldwide regulatory bodies as equivalent to a fixed gauging system as long as the tape remains in the valve from the beginning until the end of loading or discharging of the tank.

ENHANCED 'CLOSED' GAUGING SYSTEMS

for Chemical & Refined Product Carriers INWOOD, N.Y. -- In a move to address the special needs of chemical and refined product carriers and barges, MMC International Corp. has announced the release of a new "closed" gauging system design.

Featuring an ullage range of 15-23 meters (top photo) or 25-37 metres (bottom photo), the system uses a new all-type 316 stainless sensor for chemical applications and a re-designed PES plastic sensor for petroleum-based product carriers.

Surface Mount Technology Both sensors employ state-of-the-art SMT (Surface Mount Technology) and circuit enhancements that provide better long term reliability, more precise ullage level sensing, and improved oil-water layer detection.

The new compact model retains the same trouble-free, gas-tight, heavy duty mechanical design as its larger VLCC class brother. Both models now have built-in viewing window wipers.

"Intrinsically Safe" All models are also approved as "Intrinsically Safe" (Exia IIB T3/T4) and as Class 1, Div. 1 gas groups' C&D equipment.

Equipment quality is assured by EECS (Baseefa) annual audits to confirm that quality requirements of ISO 9002 are maintained in addition to their supplementary requirements.

Periodic safety compliance audits are also conducted by F.M/SAA, CSA, NKK and BV.

MMC is the world's leading manufacturer of portable instruments for measuring ullage, oil-water interface, temperative, and bottom dryness in shipboard and land-based petroleum and chemical tank systems.
