    About Bacon Bomb Samplers Sold In The United States

    How Bacon Bomb Samplers Work

    Nobody seems to know why these devices are called a bacon bomb sampler or a bacon bomb fuel tester. These tank sampling devices use a plunger to keep the sampling apparatus closed until the bacon bomb strikes the bottom of the tank or vessel. When the plunger assembly hits the bottom, the bacon bomb fuel tester fills with liquid, sediment, water or sludge. Samples can be taken at any point above the bottom of the tank or vessel by attaching a pull cord, secondary trip line or extension rod to the top of plunger and then manually raising it to fill the sampler and lowering it to close the sampling device to form a tight seal. The bacon bomb sampler closes can be locked for transport. There are no O-rings used in construction of the fuel sampling bacon bombs, which have a tendency to wear out. The plungers are anti-magnetic and are threaded to accept extension rods. Bacon bomb samplers are used to take average samples from tanks that contain jet fuel, petroleum oil, botanical oil, fish oil, solvents, tar oil, sugar, glycerin, molasses, varnish, vinegar, latex, vegetable oil, juice, chemical solutions, lacquer and beverages.
