EffecTech offers an LNG sampling system inspection service in accordance with ISO 8943 to enable customers to check that their sampling systems are fit for purpose under a full range of conditions.

An experienced EffecTech gas quality engineer will complete a full inspection of the LNG loading sampling system against the requirements of ISO 8943.

The inspection reviews the following:

  • GC repeatability in line with the requirements of EN 12838 for the measurement of vapourised LNG. Based on this data, a Monte Carlo simulation is run, which will identify a safe operating envelope to ensure homogeneous sampling or vapourising.

A detailed compliance report is provided, highlighting any recommendations for change and adjustments based upon the findings.

For customers who measure LNG using a gas chromatograph and vapouriser, EffecTech offers
