Reactor Sampling / Monitoring & Control System
The pHampler is Ethylene's patented reactor sampling and pH measurement / control system for agitated reactors. The pHampler enables the reactor manway to be kept closed during sampling and / or monitoring, eliminating fugitive emissions to dramatically improve operator and environmental safety. Yield is improved with the systems unprecedented sampling and in-line pH measurement and control flexibility.
The pHampler dip tube is available in standard 2", 3" and 4" sizes - is constructed with schedule 80 carbon steel pipe - completely encapsulated and lined with PTFE to provide maximum chemical resistance and rigidity in hostile agitated vessels.
“EPL” - External Piping Loop
The pHampler “EPL” system consists of a continuous loop that provides liquid sampling, addition, sample returns, and in-line pH measurement and control. Liquid is pulled from the reactor and pumped through a pipe lined with PTFE, PFA or ETFE that can contain various analytical equipment, such as pH & temperature probes and ion sensors.
“VSA” - Vacuum Sampling & Addition
Vacuum Sampling System
pHampler "VSA" system is designed for liquid addition and manual sampling of reactors using vacuum. The sample is drawn into the sample leg, then drained back into an external sampling valve. Where continuous pH measurement is not required, the "VSA" provides a safe and convenient way for liquid sampling, addition and sample return.
Ethylene can engineer a turn-key system to fit your specific needs with regards to pumps, valves, instrumentation and dimensional layout.
