Slurry Sampling

Slurry process streams vary in flow rate, solids concentration, and particle size distribution. Any sampling technique must be able to cope with these variations without affecting the representativeness of the extracted sample. For batch sampling, automatic devices are available where a sampling slot traverses intermittently across a free-falling slurry. Unfortunately, it is difficult to improvise with this technique for continuous sampling, because such samplers introduce pulsating flow conditions into the system.
