KAM Simple Precision
 
CSS Complete Sampling System

Customized to fit each application, the KAM CSS Complete Sampling System includes one of our patented mixing elements to ensure homogeneity, a flow meter, an IAS Isokinetic Automatic Sampler, a Sampler Controller, a Sample Receiver, a Meterizer or Weight Scale, and a Circulating Sample Mixer. The system is fully compliant with API MPMS Chapter 8.2/ASTM D4177 and ISO 3171.

Based on a downhole pump design, the IAS Isokinetic Automatic Sampler features the simplest design in the industry and is the ideal instrument for pipeline sampling during custody transfer, marine unloading, lightering, etc. The IAS sampler’s high degree of accuracy and simplicity facilitate extracting a representative sample, regardless of viscosity, pressure, or flow rate.

Working with the SC Sampler Controller, the IAS sampler easily extracts a representative sample from your pipeline into an SR Sample Receiver. With a CSM Circulating Sample Mixer, you may then mix and analyze the sample for custody transfer, API gravity measurements, shrinkage, chemical composition, etc.
