Marine Moisture's Tank Gauging Meets IMCO Rules —Literature Available

On June 13, 1980, The Marine Environmental Protection Committee of IMCO adopted resolution MEPC.5 (XIII). Recalling the 1973 ICPPS regulation that tankers should be provided with effective oil/water interface detectors for use in tank discharging effluent into the sea, the new resolution set international specifications for such devices.

The news was good for shipowners who have chosen the sonic systems manufactured by Marine Moisture Control Company, Inc.

for tank gauging on their vessels.

MMC's Sonic Interface Tapes, introduced in 1977, readily meet and exceed all s p e c i f i c a t i o ns adopted by the committee.

Although the resolution calls for accuracy of ±25 mm, the MMC system measures interface to an accuracy of ± Vs inch, or less than 4 millimeters. And that accuracy is consistent from tank top to within an inch of the bottom.
