April 11 2024

The sand sampling system is a portable cylinder for capturing and quantifying solids in both oil and gas flow streams. Effective sand sampling can contribute to flow assurance allowing increased production optimisation and the sample analysis can provide valuable data to enhance and prolong the reservoirs life cycle.

Flow Through System -Vent to atmosphere or vent line tie-in

Simple Flexible Hose Connections - Adaptors available to any sample point connection size

Interchangeable Mesh - Mesh sizes; 20, 50, 100, 500

Full Sampling Kit Supplied - Kit includes cylinder stand, hoses, fittings kit, scales, sample bottles and tool kit

SMS can supply complimentary services:
