The Specialist Offshore Services gas sampling unit combines several safety features to allow users to operate with unknown gases. The sample bottle is rated to 5000 PSI, which allows users to bring samples back from depths as great as 3000MSW. All outlets from the bottle have 2 barriers to protect users.
The hydraulically operated valve ensures that at least one valve cannot be accidentally left slightly open by error or accident. The manual valve is operated by the ROV 7 function manipulator and forms the last barrier on the collection side to protect users. The sample point allows for easy gas extraction and testing without having to use the ROV operated valves.
