Intertek’s Automatic Inline Sampler Solution (AILS) is designed to meet client specific needs and offers the best solution for facilities like refineries, storage and blending terminals, floating storage and bunker barges.

How does it work AILS?

The sampler is installed by our in-house team of technicians in part of the pipeline or at the manifold. During the liquid transfer, the automatic sampler collects a sequence of small volume samples considering some factors such as flow rate, pressure, and temperature of the liquid, to obtain the most representative sample.

During sampling, data is collected by the sampler control unit and is processed for a complete analysis of multiple parameters including reporting the temperature, relative pressure, volume transferred, net sample weight, yield factor, number of subsamples extracted per channel and total number of subsamples. Once the results are processed, these are transferred to an excel sheet and a sampling certificate is issued.

This data analysis program can be customised to the customer’s needs. The AILS programs’ bespoke and custom tailoring allows usage not only across the oil and gas industry but also across industries which require, the sampling of any type of liquid product.
