Title: LIQUID SAMPLING CONTAINER WITH INTERNAL MIXER
Abstract:
A liquid sampling container with an internal mixer includes a sealed outer body configured to hold a sample multi-phase fluid obtained from a multi-phase fluid stream. An inlet line is attached to the outer body. The sample multi-phase fluid flows into the sealed outer body through the inlet line. A piston assembly is positioned within the sealed outer body. The piston assembly is sealed to the inner walls of the outer body to define a sample volume in which the sample multi-phase fluid is contained. A shear mixer is positioned within the sealed outer body. The shear mixer includes a rotor and a stator arranged to define a fluid passage and rotatable relative to each other. The rotor includes a rotary shear blade configured to shear the sample multi-phase fluid such that a homogeneity of multiple phases in the sample multi-phase fluid remains substantially constant.
