Process Analyzer Sampling System Training (5 Day Course)
Dates 11th-15th June
Presenter Tony Waters
Swagelok has serviced the process analyzer market for more than 60 years. As a global company, we have addressed all kinds of process analyzer sampling system challenges in a range of industries. To help optimize your own system success, this expertise is now being presented in a five day course specially developed for technicians, chemists, engineers or anyone involved in the design, building, operation or maintenance of process analyzer sampling systems. Our experience tells us that, more often than not, inaccurate results from an analyzer indicate a problem with the sampling system itself, not the analyzer. Our goal is to teach you how to tell the difference. This course will show you how to recognize and diagnose common sampling system design flaws. You will learn how to employ formulas, calculations, and engineering principles rather than rely on guesswork or approximations. In the end, you will design, build, and present your own sampling system.
On this course you will learn to...
– diagnose sample transport problems
– evaluate and determine sample tap location, select an appropriate probe
– calculate and optimize sample transport lag (or time delay) for liquids and gases
– calculate pressure drop in a fast loop or return line
– calculate flow rate for a gas and liquid
– avoid or account for adsorption and permeation
– predict how much vapor will condense in a sampling system
– prevent or control phase separation
– vaporize a sample, if and when it is appropriate
– avoid deadlegs in a sampling system
– read and create sampling system schematics
– design and build a sampling system
– identify Swagelok fluid system components that address sampling system challenges
