  SPECIAL SAMPLERS?
We have the experience and facilities to design and construct a custom sampler for you out of stainless steel and PTFE. We cannot, however extend this service to our plastic samplers because they are injection moulded. Existing sampler styles can be modified to suit your exact requirements or if you have a new application we will design and develop a completely new sampler. Contact Sampling Systems for further information.
