E-IAS Electric Isokinetic Automatic Sampler


E-IAS™ with 1.25″ NPT mounting

The KAM E-IAS™ is our electric-drive automatic sampler. Ideal for LACT or other custody transfer applications, the E-IAS™ offers time-based or flow-proportional sampling without pneumatic or hydraulic drive requirements.

The E-IAS™ is based off of the same precision probe design as KAM's pneumatic IAS™ Isokinetic Automatic Sampler, which has been in operation for over 30 years. Both are fully compliant with API MPMS 8.2/ASTM D4177 and ISO 3171.

The E-IAS™:

  • can take up to 20 samples per minute, with sample bite sizes of 0.5 to 2 cc's
  • can be installed on lines up to 36"
  • model/mounting options include insertable-retractable, 1.25" NPT fixed insertion, flanged fixed insertion, or flow-through spool
  • features a positive displacement design better suited for high-paraffin applications

The E-IAS™ can be ordered with the KAM CSS™ Complete Sampling System, which also includes a pipeline mixer, a Sampler Controller, a Sample Receiver, a Weight Scale or Meterizer, and a Circulating Sample Mixer.

All delivered with the same quality and quick service that has made KAM a sampling industry leader for over 37 years.

The KAM E-IAS™ is a part of a suite of instruments designed for LACT units and other custody transfer applications which also includes the SMP™ Static Mixing Plate and the LRW™ Low Range Watercut meter.
