VP/HK with PS/E and PG/H

Gauging and Sampling Device with accessories

Function and Description

The PROTEGO® gauging and sampling assembly consists of the manual gauging and sampling device PROTEGO® VP/HK (1), the gauging nozzle PROTEGO® PS/E (2), the gauging pipe PROTEGO® PR/0, the gauge plate PROTEGO® PT/S and the sampling pot PG/H (3). This assembly serves for gauging (determination of the liquid level) and sampling in horizontal or vertical aboveground tanks which store non-flammable or – if equipped appropriately – flammable liquids, this device may also be used for storage tanks approved by customs.

The portable gauging and sampling device PROTEGO® VP/HK is attached by aa clamp to the fixing rod of the gauging nozzle. The millimeter-scale measuring tape - black anodized - is calibrated by customs.

The gauging pipe PROTEGO® PR/0 is made of an insert-pipe with holes. the slip-on fllange is included in the shipment and has to be welded on during on-site assembly.

The gauging nozzle with hinged cover and clip-lock PROTEGO® PS/E is attached to the counter-flange of the gauging and sampling pipe. The locking nozzle has the Fixing rod attached for connecting the gauging and sampling device PROTEGO® VP/HK.

The sampling constructed from stainless steel with conductive plastic caps pot PROTEGO® PG/H consists of housing with metallic sealing valve discs and snap-hook. Specify the required capacity (1l or 2l / 0.22 gal (UK) or 0.44 gal (UK))
