What is closed loop sampling

Texas Sampling specializes in closed


loop sampling systems although
manufacture all types of grab sample
systems.
Closed Loop Sampling: To provide a
method of collecting grab samples in
closed containers without venting to the
atmosphere or exposing the sample
taker to the process liquids or vapors.
4

Why Closed Loop Sampling


Suit up for safety, not for survival

Hygiene/Safety - Benzene and other known carcinogens,


hot samples, Acids, Cyanide, Phosgene,
Organics
Environmental-Reduction in Overall Plant
Emissions
Quality of Sample
- Containment of all Elements in a
Process Stream
To ensure that an accurate and representative
sample is taken every time
5

Scope of applications

Low vapor pressure liquids


High pressure liquids
High vapor pressure liquids
Gases
Slurries
Powders
Etc.

throughout the sample valve assembly

Features

and

Easily operated with


one valve
Live load seat

Continual flow

Process needle

10

What is process needle purge


(PNP)?

The system purges needle automatically after


the sample has been collected
Pressurized purge removes the sample from
the process needle
Helps to Eliminate plugging of all components
where process could stagnate
Allows the operator to check the status of the
system to prevent the sample container from
rupturing
Provides a clean, representative sample

11

MH - Manual Continuous

Features a customized,
quarter turn, three-way
ball valve with an orifice
that allows continuous
flow during the sampling
process
Typically used for low
pressure and
temperature applications
with a return of process

12

13

14

MD - Flow Thru

Consists of a sample valve


that allows for continuous
process flow through a or
orifice
The rising stem sample valve
allows the operator to control
the flow of the sample being
dispensed into the sample
bottle
Used for both high and low
pressures and temperatures
where continuous flow is
desired or viscous process is
encountered

amount of sample needed
29

Manual Fixed Volume Sampling Systems

Closed-loop sample systems designed to take a specified


amount of sample (this amount can be varied according
to the design requirements)
Designed for use in both low and high pressure
applications with a wide variety of viscosities
How it works:
A fixed amount of sample is isolated from the process
Then low pressure purge is used to blow the sample
down into the sample container
PNP removes any residual sample
Can be customized to meet the customers needs

30

look and operate uniformly

46

LSG - LPG Gas Sample System

Used to take samples of gases or vapor


The sample cylinder is filled from the top to flush any
liquids or condensed vapors back to the process to
prevent contamination of the fresh sample
A pressure gauge is incorporated in the design to
indicate that process pressure is in the sample
system during sample collection
An armored rotameter can be added to verify flow
through the system as an option

50

LP* - LPG with Purge


*Add L for liquid or G for gas

Used in applications when there is a requirement to


flush the process fluid from the quick connects prior
to disconnecting from the sample cylinder
Compressed air or an inert gas is used to purge the
process fluid from the cylinder connections and out
the vent ensuring that the connections are clean and
dry before the cylinder is removed
There is a separate design for liquids and gases
