New ISO-compliant inspection ports

Total systems supplier VETUS has introduced two new ISO-compliant tank inspection ports.

Featuring an enhanced lid design and glass fibre reinforcement, the ILT120B and ILT120X inspection ports for bio diesel fuel, fresh water and waste-water tanks meet ISO small craft standards for permanently installed fuel systems and petrol/diesel fuel tanks.

ISO 21487, the standard for fuel tanks, includes a stringent fire test and sets specific measurements for the fuel tank’s inspection lid to minimise the possibility of fuel contamination. As installed on a fuel tank, the ILT120(B & X) fully complies with ISO 10088, the standard for fuel systems.

Suitable for use with certified VETUS tanks, including built-in metal tanks, to create a fully compliant system, the universal ports are successors to the large ILT120 inspection port for bio diesel fuel, fresh water and waste-water tanks. The ILT120B can be used with bio diesel (up to B10), fresh water and waste-water tanks, while the ILT120X with Viton gasket set is suitable for use with petrol or bio diesel fuel exceeding B10.

The inspection ports benefit from a unique clamp-and-seal design which simplifies installation and facilitates easy opening, inspection and cleaning of the tank. Depending on the positioning of the tank, it is possible to inspect the tank interior whilst maintaining the connections.
