Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS2) Subsystem Training

Learn how to design subsystems for your Process Analyzer Sampling System.


To understand complex system subassemblies and build them into a complete, optimized sample system, and to sharpen your sample system design skills and knowledge.

Here's what you will learn in five days:
  • How to design five (5) subsystems common to all grab sample systems:
    • Sample extraction
    • Field preconditioning
    • Sample conditioning
    • Calibration switching
    • Sample disposal
  • How to assemble these subsystems into complete system designs or use them as analytical tools to assess and improve in-service systems
  • How to troubleshoot problem designs in the field or on the drawing board
Industrial Sampling Systems by Tony Waters

Course content is derived from industry expert and consultant, Tony Water's technical reference book, Industrial Sampling Systems.

Who should attend:
  • Experienced grab sample system engineers, design engineers, integrators, highly trained technicians and industry professionals with a working knowledge of principles related to grab sample system design and troubleshooting
  • This course provides a deep exploration of subsystem components and builds on Swagelok's Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) Training; however, the PASS Training Course is not a prerequisite.
Your Instructors:
  • Tony Waters, Industry Expert and Consultant: Tony Waters brings over 45 years of experience with process analyzers and sampling systems to his numerous training programs, which have been presented in many countries. He has also founded three companies and has worked in engineering and marketing roles for an analyzer manufacturer, end-user and a systems integrator. Mr. Waters holds a bachelor’s degree in systems engineering from The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom.
  • Phil Harris, Industry Expert and Consultant: In his over 30 years in industry and academia, Phil Harris has provided expert insight and analysis for a variety of applications. He is the author of many papers on analyzer systems and routinely presents at industry conferences and technical seminars. With extensive experience in research, development and project management, Mr. Harris has supported many industries, including nuclear energy, oil refining and alternative fuels. He earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Manitoba.
