Adapters and Sample receptacles
There are two main types of sample receptacles in the Chemical Industry: 1. Bottles Other Open-top containers (in blue below)2. Closed containers such as pressure cylinders and piston-injectors (in green below)
Webinar - Grab Sample. Simplified.
The purpose of this short presentation (20 minutes + Q&A) is to give a general overview of different technologies to sample chemicals. The focus will be on three specific areas:
Industrial Hygiene & environment
Problem with Sampling ball valves
The most important drawback of Sampling ball valves is the cavity in the ball itself. It is impossible to make sure the cavity is clean and no cross-contamination occurs. It’s very likely that residue will be left in the ball, no matter the position of it.
BIAR’s integrated thread adapter compared to other manufacturers
BIAR's advanced engineered seat provides a directly representative sample, the first time, every time. Other valve manufacturers are cheaper to buy but cost more after just a few months
Fire Test Qualification - API607 - ISO 10497
This certificate is to certify that the valve has been tested in accordance with and meets all limits stated in API Standard 607, sicth edition September 2010 and testing of valves according to ISO 10497:2010 requirements.
Grabbing a Chemical Sample in a bottle without any exposure
With a sample valve from BIAR Sampling Systems, the operator can safely grab a Chemical Sample into a bottle without any exposure. Using the REVO-BOX, a bottle can be used to capture hazardous Chemicals (HazChem) in a totally controlled environment. The sample is collected in the bottle used by the laboratory technician (lab tech) and the cap is safely screwed back within the safety cabinet at the sample station, thus eliminating any fumes or toxic vapors.
This product also works for grabbing a high purity chemical sample in a bottle.
Grabbing a sample using BIAR Sample Cylinder
Our sample cylinders are used to grab liquefied gas or any fluid under pressure and/or under vacuum. It is the equivalent of what is generally called a "closed loop sampling".
Sampling hazardous chemical into a bottle holder
This video shows how bottles fit into the bottle holder from BIAR Sampling System.
With this accessory, the bottle is not as tightly held into place as with our other accessories. The operator can very easily fit the bottle, he/she doesn't have to screw it.
The four guiding rods are designed according to the bottle and the spring holder keeps the bottle into place.
Sampling Hazardous Chemical into a bottle using needle adapter with nitrogen rinsing
With BIAR Sampling System you can grab a quality sample of hazardous chemical into a bottle with septum cap in a safe way. Our design allows nitrogen (N2) to flow through the stem, down the product needle, into the bottle and out through the vent needle thus eliminating any residue. This system also allows a complete purge of the sample valve and accessory, removing oxygen and moisture.
Extracting the sample from Sample Cylinder BIAR Columbia LY using the lab stand
This quick video shows how a sample of hazardous chemical such as liquid Liquefied gas, Chlorine or HF is transferred from the Sample Cylinder type Columbia-LY at the lab.
This process usually occurs in a controlled environment, under the hood.
Sampling Liquefied Gas such as Liquid Chlorine
This video shows how easy and intuitive it is to sample hazardous liquefied gas into a Sample Cylinder using BIAR’s technology. Easy = intrinsically safe.
Because the valve is in-line, either directly on the process line or on a bypass / fast-loop, a directly representative sample is collected without the need to purge / flush small tubing.
Sampling using the Spring to close hand wheel (Magic Hand Wheel)
BIAR Sample valves as standard come with our spring-to-close hand wheel, aka "Magic Hand Wheel". This safety feature closes the valve automatically as soon as the operator let the hand wheel go.
Sampling liquefied gas and hazardous chemicals into a sample cylinder
This video shows a new way to sample liquefied gas and hazardous chemicals into a sample cylinder. This is a safer and easier alternative to the traditional sample panels AKA "closed loop sample systems". Examples of applications include Phosgene, liquid Chlorine, Hydrofluoric Acid (HF), Ethylene Oxyde (EO), Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM), etc.
Top-of-reactor Sampling System
BIAR's top-of-reactor recirculation loom sampling system for the chemical processing industry is a turn-key device for grabbing samples of hazardous chemicals. Designed to get the best sample quality in a safe and simple way, it not only helps to comply with regulations and environmental emission but it also has a significant positive impact on industrial hygiene.
The best part might yet be the fact that overall it helps reduce a plant's Total Cost of Ownership.
Connecting a Safety Cabinet to a sample valve
Using BIAR's "Multi-function" connection, it is easy to install and remove accessories. No special tool is needed.
Here we see the operator connecting a Safety cabinet - enclosure - to a vertical sample valve.
The "pawl" is used to lock / release the accessory.
Receptacles for sampling hazardous chemicals
Accessories - Most distinctive part of a sample valve: How to collect the sample. Two main categories to chose from: open-top receptacles such as bottles and jar and sample cylindersfor liquefied gas and volatile chemicals. This video shows some of the most popular accessories.
A safe way to sample Hazardous Liquids and Gas
All chemical manufacturers strive to generate products of the highest quality possiblein a most cost-effective way. Samples must be takenthroughout the manufacturing process to monitor each stage.
Grab Sampling can be messy work
There are toxic fumes, a lot of PPE and operators don't really like it (who can blame them when all they know are complicated wobbly sample panels!) That's until they've tried an Inline Sample Valve by BIAR Sampling Systems & BIAR Sampling - North America.
