Gauging and Dipping

 

Dipping for Water Content

This is a vital thing to know especially for ethanol blend fuel tanks. The presence of water can have a very detrimental effect on your stored fuels. Dipping open tanks is not a risk free or healthy activity, especially on Vapour Recovery Sites – so we designed the RIS-PRESSURE-DIP system. With its integral ‘drop tube’ this product allows you to dip for water without allowing the pressurised vapour in the the whole tank farm ullage to escape.

Note:

This sytem is not suitable for content / level gauging as the pressure in the tank will effect the level in the dip-tube, and will not be accurate.

RIS-RISER

These units are designed to mount electric tank level cartridges of up to 80mm OD, by other manufacturers, directly to a RIS-FLANGE™ Tanklid System.

The flanged swivel cap assembly allows the cable to exit the Riser in a horizontal plane in any required orientation.

The ATEX approved and IP68 rated metal cable gland supplied comes with a standard 4.0 – 8.0mm bush.

  • RIS-RISER height (less cap) is 500mm flange face to flange face

RIS-RISER-3F-BSP-MK2

  • Flanged top, threaded bottom
  • 3” BSPT threaded base, which allows fitment to traditional threaded port tank lids

RIS-RISER-3T

  • Flanged top, threaded adaptor
  • RIS-RISER cap assembly to fit to your own riser, with 3” BSPP female fitting

RIS-RISER-R4-3F

Instructions:
Fit gauge probe through riser, routing cables via banjo fitting and cable gland,
orientating the direction of cable to suit, before tightening the bolts to secure flanges.
Flanged fitting bases are supplied with gaskets bolts and washers, for threaded version
or RIS-RISER-3T use fitting processes and normal thread sealants as preferred.
