Samplers are used to take liquid (including fuel) samples from tanks, systems and the environment. They are usually constructed of stainless steel or other corrosion resistant metals. Their design allows representative samples to be collected from different locations and levels within tanks or systems. They can be easily cleaned and sanitized prior to use to avoid sample contamination.
Use of suitable sampling devices allows any level samples to be collected from normal access points. The contents of storage tanks are not usually homogenous: samples from all levels are required to build a picture of the quality of the product within a tank. The quality of a tank contents is not always related to the condition of the tank itself. The contamination present at the bottom of a tank is indicative of the risk of microbial corrosion to a tank.
Samplers are ideal to sample:
- Bilge Water
- Ballast Water
- Potable Water
- Environmental waters
- Fuel Tanks, including all levels, absolute bottom and water bottoms
- Metal Working Fluids
Sampling is usually conducted by staff trained in the appropriate industry of the sample being taken or by suitably trained investigative staff.
