Sample Handling System (SHS) Basics - Phase Preservation Simplified



Sample systems are a crucial component of and have a significant impact on the performance of a process GC analyzer. When working on sample systems, you must be aware of process conditions and tube environments that could cause your sample to change phases.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why vapors condense and which factors influence the separation
  • Concept of partial pressure
  • Explain what phase diagrams are and why are they important
  • Along with some best practices of when, where, and how to properly heat sample transport lines.

Leave the training with a working knowledge of what to evaluate within a process, if GC problems exist.

  • Chemical

    Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
