Industrial Sampling System by Tony Waters

Industrial Sampling Systems by Tony Waters

Authored by Tony Waters—acknowledged by many as the leading expert in the design of sampling systems—Industrial Sampling Systems captures the experience and knowledge Tony has acquired during a career of more than 50 years. Its balance of theory and practical examples makes it the perfect reference for students, as well as experienced sampling system engineers, designers, and technicians.


Tony Waters and Swagelok have published a comprehensive book covering the engineering involved with designing and operating a sampling system for a process analyzer. 

  • Introduction to sampling 
  • Principles of system design
  • Sample transport lines
  • Process sampling taps 
  • Preconditioning the sample
  • Controlling sample flow
  • Controlling sample pressure
  • Sample temperature control 
  • Change of state
  • Sample conditioning/disposal
  • Sample isolation 
  • Switching systems
  • Future of process sampling

This book is also used as the main text for Swagelok's Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) Training courses conducted at various locations around the world. All attendees receive a copy of the book as part of their registration and participation.
