The ISOLOK® API-PA sampler is an anvil piston instrument (API) probe sampler used in-line and specifically designed to handle the most demanding hydrocarbon liquid applications. The ISOLOK API-PA sampler employs a 180-degree pneumatic actuator and is ideally suited for sampling a variety of liquids, especially crude oil, condensate, and mixtures of oil and water. The ISOLOK API-PA sampler is ideal for installing where product is well mixed.
The pneumatically actuated ISOLOK API-PA sampler optimizes the accuracy and repeatability of hydrocarbon fluid sampling. The sampler offers superior performance and a long life, minimizing maintenance, accessories and service time needed.
The sampler’s 180-degree pneumatic actuator and scotch yoke design provide consistent performance over a wide range of air supply conditions and process pressure and viscosities.
The optional diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating protects the unit from abrasion and enhances resistance against H2S, mercaptans, SO2, mercury and more.
