UKSGL Fuel Sampler/Thief, Running (Down & Up) (RNS)

UK Sampling Gauges Ltd, RNS has been developed to take an accurate running sample of the contents of a tank. It collects its sample continuously as it moves downwards and upwards through the liquid in the tank.

The sampler has a pair of adjustable inlet openings is its top cap, which give it the ability to take samples of a wide range of liquid types – from light products to heavy fuel oils and crudes - within a practical time scale.

The design of the sampler ensures that the rate of filling is constant during operation, independent of both the depth of the sampler and the extent of filling. This means that the operator simply lowers and raises the sampler at a steady speed, to obtain an accurate sample.

The sampler has a new design of outlet opening at the bottom, so that decanting its contents into a sample bottle can be done without inverting the sampler – reducing time and minimising spillage.

The sampler can be dismantled easily by hand for cleaning.

To DIN EN ISO 3170, for manual sampling of petroleum liquids.

Samplers can either be lowered with a specialised hand-winch, for smooth and clean operation, or, more crudely, with a length of cotton rope, cotton is used because it is chemically resistant to all fuels, any also fibre that enters the fuel will not harm it, what with fuel filters being made from cotton fibre also. Rope can be found in the options below, priced per metre. Hand Winches can be found by clicking the image below:
