While inaccuracies in measurement can be costly and common, they are also avoidable in many cases.

Technicians willing to study the experiences and best practices of industry leaders can make a world of difference by applying what they’ve learned and sharing this knowledge with others.

Composite sampling is a straightforward method. When managed correctly, samplers are able to take small bites of a flowing gas or liquid in such a way that the complete sample accurately represents what was in the pipeline for a given sample period.

Composite sampling continues to be a widely used method for economically and accurately collecting a representative sample for a prolonged sample period, so it is important for technicians in the field to develop an understanding of the best practices.
