Gas Sampling Systems

Spot Sample Stations for Gas and Liquefied Gas

Mechatest design standard and custom made gas or liquefied gas spot sampling systems that can take spot samples of gasses, liquefied gas or flashing fluids under process conditions.

The systems with sample cylinders enable operators to obtain samples of gasses with high process pressures, liquefied, hazardous or toxic gasses.

VOC Detection in Sample Cabinet

Oil installations, petrochemical plants and refineries are industrial sites that manage several raw materials (crude oil, natural gas, chemical intermediates, etc.), thus having great impact on the environment. Industrial processes may generate VOC emissions to the atmosphere, so prevention and control is becoming a very important issue in the petroleum industry.

Mechatest deliver VOC detection systems to include in our sampling system cabinets, read more about the possibilities of VOC monitoring detection systems.

Mechatest Gas Sample Probe

Importance of Sample Probes

Sample probes are very important and mostly an underestimated part of the sampling system.
Why you should use sample probes;

  • Free First Filtration Effect!
  • Faster Response (< Lag Time)
  • Representative Sample, better results!
  • Moisture Filtration (fallback) Principle

Sample Probes Types

  • Open Probes
  • Filter Probes
  • Multiport Probes
  • Heated Probes
  • Fallback Probes
  • Small Bore Gas Probes
  • Retractable Sample Probes
  • Isokinetic Steam Probes

Probes Calculating Services

  • Lag Time
  • Velocity
  • Probe Vibration
  • Moisture Fallback Effect


Mobile (portable) gas sampler with vacuum pump Mechatest Sampling Solutions

MOBILE / TRANSPORTABLE SAMPLING SOLUTIONS

If there is no posiblility (for any reason) to place fixed mounted sampling points, the mobile (transportable) sampling solution is the better choice for you!
This is a custom made and money safe solution, we design for every application a portable sampling system for gas or liquid sampling.
Mobile (transportable) sampling solutions carry with easy a several sample cylinders to the different sample tap points in your plant area.

  • For applications with over-pressure or vacuum, high or low temperature, liquids or gas
  • Optional with vacuum pump for low pressure (vacuum) sample applications
  • Explosion proof
