A metrication service is offered by W. H. Palmer and Co (Bulk Transport) covering all types of tankers, including road tankers, marine tankers and storage-tank installations.
The company provides new dipsticks and master charts for road tankers to enable loading or discharge to be controlled in either litres or gallons. If existing dipsticks show increments of 25ga1 or 50gal, sticks are supplied with increments on one side for each 20gal and for each 100 I on the other side. Available from : W. H.
