Loading arm samplers

The perfect solution for sampling from loading arms at oil refineries and tanker terminals.
In-line flow thru sampling of petroleum and chemical products at oil terminal loading platforms.

To take under pressure liquid petroleum and chemical 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 in-line loading arm samplers for liquid petroleum sampling are the safe and efficient solution for liquid petroleum sampling under high process pipeline pressure and temperature. 

The Mechatest in-line loading arm samplers for liquid petroleum sampling are based on flow thru sampling principle, a perfect solution for petroleum sampling from loading arms at oil refineries and  petroleum tanker terminals, tanks, containers, pipeline and reactors, to take representative samples of petroleum liquids in low pressure applications.

The big advantage of the in-line loading arm sampler based on flow through sampling system is the possibility to take petroleum and chemical liquid sample under process pressure, the sample is directly take from a loading arms at oil refineries and  petroleum tanker terminals, tanks, containers, pipeline and reactors or mixer. We have improved our sampling systems for liquids by:

  • Creating in-line sampling, closed loop systems emission free which provide a safe, controlled environment
  • Suitable for low pressure process application
  • Adding sample (needle or process) purge options with Nitrogen or other gas
  • Flow thru sampling, which minimizes dead volume, 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.
