FreeGlide® Inline Sampler – The smarter way to sample
The FreeGlide® is the worlds leading inline powder sampler. It has been designed to take samples efficiently and quickly as the powder falls under gravity down a pipe or chute. The FreeGlide® is used in hundreds of pharmaceutical and food factories around the world.
Manufactured by Sampling Systems Ltd the FreeGlide® Inline sampler is the ideal solution to take samples from e.g. down pipes. The sampler is completely made of pharmaceutical conform materials, can be disassembled without tools and is available either pneumatically or manually operated. Is is a sampler that enters the product flow while taking a sample.
The Flexible Diaphragm:
At the heart of the FreeGlide® is an ingenious, patented, flexible diaphragm. The purpose of the diaphragm is to keep powder away from the working mechanisms of the sampler. By keeping the mechanisms clean the sampler will not jam in operation.
All product contact polymers used within the FreeGlide® are FDA acceptable.
Sampling Systems have spent many years developing and testing the FreeGlide®. This highly innovative device overcomes the problems inherent in other in-line powder samplers:
• It does not jam during use
• The sample is collected in a cup which does not alter the physical characteristics of the powder
• The full bore of the pipe is available for powder ow when the sampler is not in use
• Available for manual or automated sampling
The FreeGlide® has been made to the latest Pharmaceutical GMP standards and so is ideal for hygienic applications. The product contact parts of the standard model are: 316 stainless steel, PTFE and silicone rubber (other materials are available on request).
The FreeGlide® is exceptionally robust and is suitable for use in a wide range of industries including: pharmaceutical, food, chemical, general industrial and cosmetic.
Which FreeGlide? — How to determine the right FreeGlide®:
The FreeGide® is available in four sizes. The size required will depend upon the diameter of the pipe where the FreeGlide is to be installed.
Sample Collection — When the Sampling Cup is inverted the product falls down the Discharge Chute. The powder samples can be collected in a number of ways:
• Into a bottle attached using a PTFE Bottle Adapter
• Into a bag
• Collected using a cassette of continuous tubing which can be sealed and cut between sample collections
PTFE Bottle Adapter:
A PTFE Bottle Adapter can be custom made to suit virtually any bottle thread. The Bottle Adapter clamps to the Discharge Chute and the sample collecting bottle screws into Bottle Adapter
High Containment Sampling:
Sampling Systems can offer high containment sampling through a 50mm high containment Split Butterfly Valve.
Containment levels of < 10 μg/m3 (lower levels can be achieved depending on the product) Available in both 316 stainless steel and hastelloy with a range of seals including EPDM and Kalrez® Suitable for use with either stainless steel or plastic containers.
The FreeGlide® is designed for the collection of powder samples from a vertical downpipe. The product needs to be dispersed in air and in free fall.
Pipe Pressure: The internal pressure differential across the device (inside/outside of the downpipe) needs to be within 0.1 barg of surrounding atmospheric pressure.
Flexible Parts: Silicone, Viton or EPDM (FDA acceptable materials)
Temperature: Product Temperature 10 to 60°C (50 to 140°F)
ATEX: Ex II 2GD T4 (extra cost option).
