The Metal Samples retrieval tool and service valve can be used to insert or retrieve sensors from process systems operating under full pressure (up to 3600 psi). It can be used to retrieve a variety of sensors from the MH™ and HP™ high presure access systems, or any other generic high pressure access system, when used with an inexpensive adapter. The Metal Samples retrieval tool and service valve system incorporates the following unique features:
Side-wheel manipulation to allow safe operation.
No telescoping parts.
Positive indication of full insertion or retrieval of plug/sensor assembly to avoid operation errors.
Compact design to allow retrieval in minimum clearance areas.
Lightweight construction for single person operation.
Full compatibility with systems manufactured by other suppliers.
