Sampling Valves are valves dedicated to drawing a live sample from a process piping system. They also can be used for injection purposes. They are frequently used in many industrial processes involving liquids and gasses to ensure the product quality meets standards.
Samples can be taken in several ways, including using a ball valve to fill an open container. The issue with this approach is that there is little to no safety measures involved with a strategy to protect operators from the process. An open container adds the possibility of product surplus and spills that can harm and impose health risks to the operator. Using a ball valve for drawing live samples can lead to spills and splashing due to the valve's quick opening 1/4 turn nature. Ball valves also allow for dead space and clogging, which may leave old or contaminated liquid behind resulting in a bad sample.
STRAHMAN HAS THE SOLUTION: Sampling Valves that extract fluid directly from the pipeline, taking safe samples without failure – under high pressure or high vacuum conditions.
