Contents Notes
"This report describes procedures developed for sampling oil and water mixtures. Two procedures for sampling in containers are discussed: grab and stratified sampling. Both of these techniques require stripping free-standing water from the container bottom. The grab sample technique requires that the remaining fluids be thoroughly mixed before immersing a bottle through the resulting homogeneous emulsion. The stratified sampling procedure uses a sample thief to capture a segmented cross-section of the remaining fluids. Two procedures for sampling flowing fluids were tested. The two sampling tubes tested were installed immediately downstream of a series of static mixers and a centrifugal pump. The sampling ports were a simple slotted tube and pilot-shaped tube."
