Mucon Oyster Sample Valve

The Mucon Oyster Sample Valve is the solution to obtaining product samples from a wide range of production processes.

Overview

The Mucon Oyster Sample valve is designed to quickly and easily extract powder samples from Reactors, Dryers and Conveying Systems with minimal disruption to the production process.The standard Oyster Sample Valve has a non-intrusive piston with a sample port at an angle to the main body into which the sample material falls under gravity when the valve is opened.The sample port is equipped with a purging valve, which can be used to equalise pressure / vacuum to the outside.The Sample Valve itself is attached to the vessel by means of a Tri-Clamp or Mounting Flange. Mounting arrangements can be customised if required.
