Process Analyzer Sampling System Subsystem Training

PASS Subsytem training class

Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) Subsystem Training

Learn How to Design Subsystems for Your Process Analyzer Sampling Systems


  • Understand complex system subassemblies and build them into a complete, optimized sampling system
  • Sharpen your sampling system design skills

What You’ll Learn

  • How to design five subsystems common to all sampling systems:
    • Sample extraction
    • Field preconditioning
    • Sample conditioning
    • Calibration switching
    • Sample disposal
  • How to assemble these subsystems into complete system designs or use them as analytical tools to assess and improve in-service systems
  • How to troubleshoot problem designs in the field or on the drawing board

Course content is derived from Industrial Sampling Systems, a technical reference book authored by industry expert and consultant Tony Waters.

Who Should Attend

  • Experienced sampling system engineers, design engineers, integrators, highly trained technicians and industry professionals with a working knowledge of principles related to sampling system design and troubleshooting
  • This course provides a deep exploration of subsystem components and builds on Swagelok’s Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) Training; however, the PASS Training course is not a prerequisite

Course Length

5 days
