Grab Sample Module (GSM)
Swagelok’s Grab Sample Module (GSM) is closed-loop, cylinder sampling system for use with gas, liquid and two-phase processes. A key feature of the 8 standard Swagelok GSM systems is a tandem 40G series switching valve that simplifies operation while isolating and capturing the sample. Multiple options are available and the panels are easily customized to meet your needs.
Grab Sample Cylinders (GSC)
Swagelok’s Grab Sample Cylinder (GSC) assemblies are sold separately from GSM sampling systems and feature the highest quality components for safe capture and transportation of samples. GSC assemblies come standard with Swagelok D series needle valves. Multiple options are available and GSC assemblies are easily customized to meet your needs.
Liquid-Only Sample System (GSL)
Swagelok’s liquid-only sample system (GSL) is a closed-loop sampling system for use with low vapor-pressure liquids. These systems typically use bottles with septum caps to collect and safely contain samples for lab analysis. There are 7 standard Swagelok GSL systems and they all utilize Sentry Equipment’s Model MVS to draw a sample into the bottle. The MVS is equipped with an easily replaceable dual needle system and a spring-return handle to prevent unintentional dispensing. Multiple options are available and panels are easily customized to meet your needs.
