Bag Sampling

Sampling Tips

  • Use only PTFE tubing and a PTFE-lined septum for bag sampling to prevent sample loss.

  • Flush bags thoroughly with purified air or nitrogen before use.

  • Do not use bags to collect unstable or highly reactive compounds.

  • Do not ship sample bags by air unless the cargo cabin is pressurized.

  • When sampling for CO or CO2, use SKC Standard FlexFoil (263 and 263 Series) or FlexFoil PLUS (252 and 253 Series) Grab Bags.

  • Avoid filling any bag more than 80% of its maximum volume. Visually inspect the bag as it is filling to determine when sampling is complete.
