Pipette (sampling rod), available in three different lengths, GP 30, GP 60, and GP 84, to sample fuel tanks of over the road vehicles to provide a visual analysis of whether the fuel is clear (taxed) or red (untaxed). Pipettes are packaged 100 pieces per case.
- GP30: A 30” length, .165 diameter screening pipette (screening rod) made from polypropylene plastic for the detection of red dye in diesel, indicating the presence of non-highway taxed fuel. Each pipette is individually sleeved to ensure the integrity of taking samples with clean equipment. When using the pipette to see the true color of the sample, look at the meniscus, which is the drop of fuel at the top of the captured fuel sample. If you flick the pipette with your finger, it will cause a series of bubbles to form in the pipette and you will have meniscuses to visually analyze. The pipette is designed to take a quick fuel sample to determine if the fuel potentially contains red dye. It is used to quickly alert you to a questionable fuel sample. This is the Pipette length used for sampling truck saddle tanks.
- GP60: 60″ length pipettes made and sleeved exactly like the GP30, used for acquiring fuel samples of diesel-powered pickup trucks.
- GP84: 84″ length pipettes made and sleeved exactly like the GP30, used for acquiring fuel samples of pickup trucks with an extremely long fuel neck.
