Infographic -- Proper Grab Sampling Can Make A Big Difference

Sept. 28, 2021
Areas of improvement, challenges and finding true representative samples worry operators.

The infographic below highlights a few concerns when collecting samples of hazardous chemicals. Safety and quality are paramount. It is important to prevent exposure to toxic fumes or spills and a high-quality sample should be representative and cross-contamination should be avoided entirely. Unfortunately, sampling is sometimes an afterthought in chemical processing facilities. 

“I don't think it's a high priority for plants,” according to Yvan Masson, executive vice president of Biar Sampling Systems, a manufacturer of liquid and gas sampling systems. “But grab sampling makes it easy to make a big difference. It’s easy to improve safety and it's easy to improve your sample quality.”
