Equipment to comply with MARPOL 73/78 Annex VI
Order Code: SAM 320
The IMO legislation demands that ship operators comply with strict regulations concerning emissions while the MEPC.96(47) guideline regulates the collection, retention and storage of bunker fuel oil samples in front of this legislation. The MT SAMPLE RETENTION SYSTEM enables with its manifold equipment, shipboard staff to follow the rules in a safe and efficient manner.
As a feature the MT-SRS cubitainer and sampler are each fitted with sealing provision to prevent tampering during sampling, thus complying with 5.2.5 & 5.3 of MEPC.96 (47). This method does NOT restrict the manual valve operation as with some designs on the market. This ensures that the valve is operable throughout the bunkering period enabling adjustment to control the flow of the primary sample as required (see 5.2.4 of MEPC.96 (47)).
Labels provided actually are no paper stickers, but made out of tear and oil proof material fitted with a hole, so that a uniquely numbered cable strip create a tamper proof unison of bottle, label and cap.
