Hexane liquid samplers

To take under high pressure Hexane liquid samples the conventional way is not only inefficient, but in the case of this dangerous media, humans and the environment are subjected to high safety risks, the Mechatest fix volume Hexane liquid samplers are the safe and efficient solution for Hexane liquid sampling under high process pipeline pressure and temperature. 

The Mechatest Hexane liquid sampling systems are based on fix volume sampling principle, a perfect solution for liquid Hexane sampling from tanks, containers, pipeline and reactors, to take representative samples of Hexane liquids in high pressure applications. 


Hexane liquid is an important organic chemical, it is a natural constituent of crude oil and is one of the elementary petrochemicals, classed as an aromatic hydrocarbon, same group as Toluene, Xylene, Aniline and Cumene.  
Hexanes are all colorless liquids, odorless when pure, with boiling points between 50 and 70 °C (122 and 158 °F). They are widely used as cheap, relatively safe, largely unreactive, and easily evaporated non-polar solvents.

With the progressive addition of carbon units, the simple non-ring structured hydrocarbons have higher viscosities, lubricating indices, boiling points, solidification temperatures, and deeper color.

  • Phase; Liquid
  • Main hazards; potential occupational carcinogen, flammable & toxic
  • Viscosity; 0.25 cP
  • Vapor pressure; +/- 0.2 barg (25°C)
  • Density; +/- 0.680 g/cm3
  • Explosive limits; different

Sampling of Liquid Hexane

The big advantage of the closed loop Hexane liquid sampling system is the possibility to take Hexane liquid liquid sample under high process pressure and fill it into a glass sample bottle, the Hexane sample is directly take from a tank, container, pipeline, reactors or mixer. We have improved our sampling systems for liquids by:

  • Creating closed loop systems emission free which provide a safe, controlled environment
  • Suitable for high pressure process application
  • Adding sample (needle or process) purge options with Nitrogen or other gas
  • Fixed volume sampling, which minimizes both waste and costs
  • Simplifying designs, making the sampling of liquid and gas more efficient
  • Proper discharge of excess liquid or gas prevents unwanted pressure build-up in the system

These modern solutions simply regard the sampling systems themselves. Our worldwide reputation rests on the combination of excellent systems, and professional services by our team of specialists.
