Kest Sampling Unit

The Kest Sampling Unit has become a very popular sampling solution, it combines sampling at controlled conditions with cost efficiency and ease of use.

Simple to use

The operator simply penetrates a silicon membrane with a pencil point needle to collect a sample. When removing the needle, the membrane self-seals and can hold a pressure up to 7 bar.

The sample can now be extracted from the container to be analyzed. Each sample port can facilitate 8 samples per batch. The system is designed to be fitted to a standard TC- ferrule, ISO 2852.


Main features :

  • Easy to use – reliable samples
  • Flexible - by simply adding one more sample port to your vessel.
  • Cost effective sampling
  • TC Gaskets according to ISO 2852

The sample port is easily attached to a tank or pipe with a standard TriClamp connection like Kest-Lock.

Smart design

A lot of smart functions is built into the Kest Sampling unit. The lid is not only protecting the unit when not sampling it is also designed as a tool to unscrew the compression part that holds the membrane in place. This becomes handy during exchange of membranes – not other tools is needed.

Medical grade membrane

The most important part of the sample port is of course to have a high quality membrane. The Kest sampling membrane is made in regards to the Pharma demands and fulfill USP Class VI.

Additional features :

  • Size : 1" and 1"1/2 (TC 50.5 )
  • Material : AISI 316L 1.4404
