Propylene sampling

Mechatest delivers operator safety and friendly Propylene (Propene) sampling systems that allows for sampling in a safe and controlled environment. To take under high pressure Propylene (Propene) 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 Propylene (Propene) samplers are the safe and efficient solution for Propylene (Propene)sampling under high process pipeline pressure and temperature. The Mechatest Propylene (Propene) sampling systems are based on gas cylinder sampling principle, a perfect solution for Propylene (Propene) sampling from tanks, containers, pipeline and reactors, to take representative samples of Propylene (Propene) gas in high pressure applications. 

The problem with Propylene (Propene)sampling is that it wants to change state if the pressure varies. This requires a sample system and a sample cylinder with a safe outage tube. 


Propylene (Propene) is the second most important starting product in the petrochemical industry after ethylene. It is the raw material for a wide variety of products. Manufacturers of the plastic polypropylene account for nearly two thirds of all demand. Polypropylene end uses include films, fibers, containers, packaging, and caps and closures. Propene is also used for the production of important chemicals such as propylene oxide, acrylonitrile, cumene, butyraldehyde, and acrylic acid.

Sampling of Propylene (Propene) Gas in Sample Cylinder

The big advantage of the Propylene (Propene) sampling system is the possibility to take Propylene (Propene) gas sample under (high) process pressure and fill it into a sample cylinder, the sample is directly take from a tank, container, pipeline, reactors or mixer. We have improved our sampling systems for gas by:

  • Creating closed loop systems emission free which provide a safe, controlled environment
  • Suitable for high pressure process application
  • 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.
