1) What is the name of your product?

Swagelok Ammonia Sampler (SAS)

2) What are the possible applications of your product?

Revolutionary Design Increases Safety, Improves Accuracy, and Enhances Efficiencies.

What is new/innovative about it? Does the product have a USP? If yes, what is it?

Swagelok® provides the highest-performance fluid system components and design expertise necessary to enable alternative fuel vehicles OEMs and supporting infrastructure companies to bring clean energy vehicles and fueling equipment safely to the market. An extension of Swagelok’s expertise in sampling systems, the Swagelok Ammonia Sampler is the only semi-automated sampler specifically made for anhydrous ammonia on the market today. Ammonia is commonly used by chemical plants and refineries in the production of fertilizers, plastics, textiles, petroleum, and more. To avoid severe stress corrosion cracking in storage tanks and product quality concerns, anhydrous ammonia is sampled to verify a water content of 0.2% to 0.5%. This is traditionally done using methods such as CGA G2.2, where a 100 mL sample of liquid ammonia is dispensed and then allowed to evaporate. By measuring the residual water, the water content of the sample can be easily calculated.

3) What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?

Can these benefits be expressed in numbers (e.g. process is 30% more efficient)?

  • Safety: Use of the Swagelok Ammonia Sampler eliminates operator exposure to liquid ammonia and ammonia vapors, making the sampling process safer.
  • Sample Accuracy and Consistency: The Swagelok Ammonia Sampler also incorporates features to minimize ammonia evaporation during the sampling process, producing a more repeatable and reliable sampling process.
  • Speed of Results: The semi-automated sampling process can complete a full sampling cycle in 1.5-2 hours (actual results may vary slightly based on other atmospheric conditions)
  • 4) How can your product contribute to industrial transformation?

    As ammonia continues to be used in industrial settings it remains critical to sample the product to understand its water content. The Swagelok Ammonia Sampler provides a solution that is focused on providing a safe and consistent sampling methodology.
