Sample System Problem Solving and Maintenance Training (SSM)

sample system problem solving and maintenance training

Proper maintenance of your sample systems will ensure processes are operating correctly and help you avoid major issues. Swagelok's Sample System Problem Solving and Maintenance (SSM) training course is an informative, hands-on class dedicated to providing you with working knowledge how to recognize and diagnose common sampling system design flaws. Understanding the design behind your sampling system is key to detecting and correcting problems before they can cause costly downtime.

Here's a quick 2 minute explanation on why Swagelok offers training in process analyzer sampling systems.

Course Objectives

If you maintain process analyzer sampling systems, you will learn how to use formulas, calculation and engineering principles to test and troubleshoot actual system designs. Classes sizes are generally small, so there is plenty of opportunity for one-on-one interactions with our certified Swagelok instructor. 

steve jacobsSwagelok Los Angeles will offer SSM training at the Torrance training location for 2019. The course is being led by Dr. Steve Jacobs, owner and president of Jacobs Process Analytics, Inc., who has designed, installed and maintained hundreds of analyzer and sampling systems for applications ranging from safety monitoring to closed-loop process control. Dr. Jacobs contributes the application of complex design principles and the configuration and adaptation of many sampling system components to solve difficult problems. 

Dr. Jacobs received his PhD in physical chemistry from Wesleyan University.

Here's what you will learn in two days:
  1. Identify when time delay is an operational problem.
  2. Calculate and optimize sample transport lag (time delay) for liquids and gases.
  3. Recognize and understand deadlegs in a sampling system.
  4. Select and maintain sample system hardware.
  5. Detect sample transport problems.
  6. Troubleshoot and improve existing sampling system designs.
  7. Understand the ownership cycle of sampling systems.
  8. Maintenance practices.
