New MMC Gauging System Meets IMCO Guidelines- Literature Available

Developed to meet IMCO standards for inert gas tank measurement, Marine Moisture Control Company, Inc. of Inwood, N.Y., has developed vapor control valves designed for use with MMC's portable gauging tapes to assure closed-tank vapor integrity with maximum gauging accuracy.

The system consists of MMC vapor control valves, available in f o u r d i f f e r e n t configurations which are installed at tank top, plus MMC portable gauging tapes, which provide several individual gauging functions plus sampling capabilities. MMC tapes are available for reading tank ullage, ullage- interface, and temperature; providing a gas seal to prevent the escape of inert gas or dangerous vapors to the atmosphere; while also providing a fixed datum reference point. They are portable, battery operated, and certified as intrinsically safe by Factory Mutual and BASEEFA.

The system may also be used for primary gauging of cargo tanks when a permanent remotereading tank gauging system is not fitted to the vessel.

The MMC closed tank portable gauging system anticipates present and future requirements by effectively and efficiently complying with IMCO requirements for portable marine gauging.
