Hydrocarbon liquid samplers

To take under high pressure Hydrocarbon 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 Hydrocarbon liquid samplers are the safe and efficient solution for Hydrocarbon liquid sampling under high process pipeline pressure and temperature. 

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


Hydrocarbon 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.  
Pentane (C5H12) is a clear liquid at room temperature, commonly used in chemistry and industry as a powerful nearly odorless solvent of waxes and high molecular weight organic compounds, including greases. Hexane (C6H14) is also a widely used non-polar, non-aromatic solvent, as well as a significant fraction of common gasoline. The C6 through C10 alkanes, alkenes and isomeric cycloalkanes are the top components of gasoline, naphtha, jet fuel and specialized industrial solvent mixtures.

Sampling of Liquid Hydrocarbons in Glass Bottle

The big advantage of the fix volume Hydrocarbon liquid sampling system is the possibility to take Hydrocarbon liquid liquid sample under high process pressure and fill it into a glass sample bottle, the 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.
