Improve Safety and Efficiency in Liquid Grab Sampling

Grab sampling, also known as field or spot sampling, is essential in chemical plants, refineries, and oil and gas facilities for validating process conditions and ensuring product quality. Methods for grab sampling vary depending on the fluid being sampled. 

For gases and volatile liquids, sample cylinders are used to contain system media and protect operators from hazards. Conversely, bottle sampling is preferred for nonvolatile liquids due to its simplicity and cost-effectiveness. 

Swagelok Application Commercialization Manger, Matt Dixon, explores proper techniques for bottle grab sampling, potential challenges, and the benefits of implementing the right sampling system design for improved operational efficiency and safety.
