Patented liquid sampling system
Liquid sampling robot equipped with a compact manifold aiming at depressurizing the effluent immediately after each reactor in separate reactor lines to atmospheric pressure. Reactor effluent is depressurized by a miniaturized (low volume) parallel dome regulator, allowing a stable control of gas or gas/liquid product streams. This eliminates the use of valves at high pressure (such as multi-position valves), which are prone to leakage.
Gas liquid separation can be performed directly by collecting liquid phase products in sample vials, while directing gas phase products towards online gas analyzer. This approach minimizes required flush times in the downstream section of the reactor making high pressure gas-liquid separators, level sensors, and drain valves obsolete.
