Liquid Sample Receivers

Sample bottles for liquid sampling



The Sample containers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. Select the proper container based on the product to be sampled to ensure that there will be no interaction between the product sampled and the container that would affect the integrity of either.

 

The sample receiver should be designed to facilitate the homogenisation of the sample in the laboratory so that a representative sub-sample may be drawn from it. All volatile samples of petroleum and petroleum products shall be protected from evaporation. 





  • Process pressure < 8 barg
  • Vapor pressure < 0.7 barg
  • High pressure application > 8 barg suitable with Fixed Volume Sampler Type.

  • Bottle Volumes: 2 mL, 10 mL, 25 mL, 50 mL, 100 mL, 250 mL, 500 mL, 1000 mL (other volumes on request)
  • Hot or Cold samples can be collected in insulated bottles.
  • All these bottle types are with screw cap and septa.

Glass bottles are suitable for low pressure sample test and storage requirements. Clear glass bottles can be easily examined visually for cleanliness, and allow for visual inspection of the sample for haze (cloudiness), discoloration, free water, and solid impurities. 

Glass bottles are used for the collection acids, caustic products, hydrocarbons, aromatics and water. 

The amber (brown) glass bottle affords some protection to the samples when light may affect the test results.

 

Plastic Bottles in general are made of suitable material may be used for the handling and storage of caustic products, diesel oil, fuel oil, lubricating oil and water.

Plastic bottles should not be used for gasoline, aviation jet fuel, kerosene, crude oil, white spirit, medicinal white oil, or other petroleum products unless testing indicates there is no problem with solubility, contamination, or loss of light components. In no circumstances shall nonlinear (conventional) polyethylene containers be used to store samples of liquid hydrocarbons.

When sampling from a flowing pipeline, electrical continuity between the pipeline and the sample container via the connecting pipework can occur. Do not use plastic containers since they are non-conductive and will not dissipate static electricity.

  • Single phase liquid samples
  • Toxic liquid samples
