Fuel Sampler/Thief, Multi-Functional: Any-Level & Bottom (ALBTMS)

These samplers combine the functions of two basic sampler types. They can be used to obtain spot samples from any level or depth within a liquid, to check for quality, density, or chemical purity, for example. They can also be used to obtain samples from the bottom (or at a specified distance from the bottom) of a tank or reservoir, to look for water underneath oil or fuel. They are ideally suited to taking samples from the fuel/water interface, to obtain evidence of microbial growth.

The ALBTMS sampler has two valves – one at the top, opened by a snatch on the supporting cable, the other at the bottom, opened by the protruding leg contacting the bottom of the tank or reservoir.

In operation, both valves stay closed (and the sampler therefore stays empty) until the sampler reaches the depth at which the sample is required. For this reason, you can be sure that true samples are obtained, uncontaminated and undiluted by liquid from any other level in the tank or reservoir


  • The ALBTMS Sampling Gauge is NOT ATEX approved in its own right.
  • The ALBTMS Sampling Gauge can be supplied in ATEX standard, when it is purchased at the same time as a Mk-1A Winder.
  • The ATEX certificate will contain the serial numbers of both the Mk-1A Winder and the Sampling Gauge. The Winder will have an "ATEX Sticker" applied to it, and the Sampling Gauge will bear no additional markings.
  • The ATEX marking is Ex II 1G IIC c T3
  • Other Sampling Gauges that qualify for ATEX approval in conjunction with EACH Mk-1A Winder are: BTMSALS, ALSBV
  • The ATEX certification is provided FREE OF CHARGE and automatically, when a qualifying gauge and winder are purchased

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:
