Gauging and Dipping


Dipping for Water Content

This is a vital thing to know especially for ethanol blend fuel tanks. The presence of water can have a very detrimental effect on your stored fuels. Dipping open tanks is not a risk free or healthy activity, especially on Vapour Recovery Sites – so the RIS-PRESSURE-DIP system has been designed. With its integral ‘drop tube’ this product allows you to dip for water without allowing the pressurised vapour in the whole tank farm ullage to escape.


this sytem is not suitable for content / level gauging as the pressure in the tank will effect the level in the dip-tube, and will not be accurate.
