Drip samplers use disposable ‘cubitainers’. These hold the oil sample before mixing and transfer to the sample bottles and keep out all external contamination.
Some authorities, for example the Port of Singapore, require that the sample flow rate is fixed throughout the bunkering period. The Valve Seal device can be fitted to the sampler to ensure the setting remains the same throughout the bunkering.
The Cubitainer Adapter allow to use CMT Cubitainers on bunker samplers from other manufacturers like DNVPS. Other version to use the CMT drip sampler with customized sampling container are available on request.
On bigger vessels the oil often falls several meters down from the ships manifold into the fuel oil storage tank. This can result in unusual pressure conditions. The pressure often becomes negative. A gauge is available for monitoring this to prevent the sample being drawn back into the line.
For alternative positions CMT does provide a special elbow kit to position the sampler at an angle to the vertical. Elbow kits allow to keep the cubitainer bag hanging vertically.
CMT produce a range of HDPE and PET sample bottles for fuel oil and lubricants. They are designed to allow sampling hot oils. Sample Bottles are supplied in following sizes:
Complete sample bottle packs including special mailing boxes and label for shipping the samples to the laboratory are available as well. The Fuel Oil Sample bottles are all sealable for tamper evidence.
