Abstract
The report describes procedures developed at the Oil and Hazardous Material Simulated Environmental Test Tank (OHMSETT) 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 also 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 a pilot-shaped tube.
