• What’s the most used system design for introducing a calibration sample to the analyzer?
  • How do I calculate time delay for my system?
  • Are my measurements useful even if they aren’t totally accurate?

If you design or maintain industrial process sampling systems, you face questions like these each and every day. Do you ever wish there was a single reference you could consult to help steer you through the complexities of your system?

The engineer in charge of designing these sampling systems and the technician managing them must be highly trained and experienced. Sampling system mistakes are always costly, sometimes dangerous, and often go undetected. Incredibly, few colleges and universities offer sampling system design in their curricula. Perhaps it’s because little has been written that could appropriately be used as a textbook ... until now.

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. Each of the 12 chapters in the book covers a different aspect of a sample system and includes photos, drawings, tables and graphs, as well as a comprehensive glossary.
