MGO liquid samplers

To take under process pressure Marine gasoil (MGO) or Marine Fuel samples the conventional way by open close a valve is not only inefficient, but in the case of this dangerous media, humans and the environment are subjected to high safety risks and pollutions, the Mechatest Marine gasoil MGO samplers are the safe and efficient solution for Marine gasoil MGO sampling under (high) process pipeline pressure and temperature. 

The Mechatest Marine gasoil MGO sampling systems are based on fix volume sampling principle but other principles and client specific MGO sample station solutions are available, a perfect solution for liquid Marine gasoil MGO sampling from tanks, containers, pipeline and reactors, to take representative samples of Marine gasoil MGO liquids in high pressure applications. 


Marine gasoil (MGO) describes marine fuels that consist exclusively of distillates. Distillates are all those components of crude oil that evaporate in fractional distillation and are then condensed from the gas phase into liquid fractions. Marine gasoil usually consists of a blend of various distillates. Marine gasoil is similar to diesel fuel, but has a higher density.

MGO has a transparent to light color. If the marine fuel is used in inland waterway shipping, like heating oil it must be marked with Solvent Yellow 124 dye. In addition, the marine gasoil is colorized red.

  • Main hazards; potential occupational carcinogen, flammable
  • Viscosity; 5 - 7 cSt (40 °C)
  • Vapor pressure; .. (25 °C)
  • Density; 0.85 - 0.89 (20) g/cm3
  • Explosive limits; .. %

Sampling of Liquid MGO (Marine Fuel) in Glass Bottle

The big advantage of the fix volume Marine gasoil MGO sampling system is the possibility to take Marine gasoil MGO liquid sample under high process pressure and fill it into a glass sample bottle, the sample is directly take from a tank, container, pipeline, reactors or mixer. We have improved our sampling systems for liquids by:

  • Creating closed loop systems emission free which provide a safe, controlled environment
  • Suitable for high pressure process application
  • Adding sample (needle or process) purge options with Nitrogen or other gas
  • Fixed volume sampling, which minimizes both waste and costs
  • Simplifying designs, making the sampling of liquid and gas more efficient
  • Proper discharge of excess liquid or gas prevents unwanted pressure build-up in the system

These modern solutions simply regard the sampling systems themselves. Our worldwide reputation rests on the combination of excellent systems, and professional services by our team of specialists.
