Sensor Sampling Basic Bottle Sampling System

BBSS The SENSOR Basic Bottle Sampling System
(BBSS) is designed for safe and reliable closed-loop
“grab” sampling of liquids at process pressures less
than 150 psig (10 bar). The SENSOR sample valve
is designed to operate under continuous flow via a
bypass or parallel line off the main process piping.
With inclusion of the optional Needle Evacuation
System (NES), the BBSS provides for for complete
removal of sampling residue from the ID of the
Process Needle, therefore preventing plugging and
cross-contamination between sampling operations.

Features and Benefits

• Highly customizable based on process conditions and
operator requirements
• Primary Flow-Thru Sample Valve features a side-ported needle
valve with packing below the threads; ensuring that the stem
will not seize due to process build up.
• Side-ported Vent Needle prevents plugging of vent port
• 316L standard material; other materials available
• Replaceable Process and Vent Needles
• Non-metallic bottle shroud protects operator in case of
shattered bottle
• Operation and Installation Manual for each system
