KPM KS Pulp Samplers

High performance sampling for screened and unscreened applications
With high performance sampling for screened and unscreened applications, ABB offers the widest portfolio of cost-effective, durable and versatile sample valves for all applications. The KPM KS2 covers low consistency screened applications. KPM KS4 and KPM KS6 samplers handle unscreened extractions with a cutting piston.
Manual & pneumatic versions available
KPM KS2 is available in manual and pneumatic versions; KPM KS4 and KPM KS6 are pneumatically operated only. Saddle and
threaded mounts are options for KPM KS2 and KPM KS4 samplers, while KPM KS6 is saddle mounted only
Safe and representative sampling
The KPM KS-line sampler heads penetrate the water layer inside the pipe, eliminating dewatering from the sampling process. KPM KS4 and KPM KS6 have stroke depth adjustment for sample flow, ensuring reliable operation with unscreened pulp.
Water flushing
A separate water connection allows cleaning of the sample valve after a collection. Flushing ensures a repeatable and representative sampling procedure.
Reduced maintenance costs
All KPM KS samplers have seal-less construction, allowing a maintenance-free operation.
Pneumatic operating valve
All pneumatic KPM KS samplers are equipped with an operation valve. An optional electric switch detects the pistons position.
Options
Electric position indicator for sampling pistons enables time stamping in the DCS.

Flush water pressure
2 - 10 bar (30 - 150 psi)
Air pressure (P-models)
KPM KS2: 2 – 10 bar (30 – 150 psi),
KPM KS4: 2 – 10 bar (30 – 150 psi), recommendation min 4 bar (60 psi)
KPM KS6: 5 – 10 bar (30 – 150 psi), recommendation min 5 bar (75 psi)
Sample outlet connection
KPM KS2: 38mm, (1 ½”) hose connection
KPM KS4: 38mm (1 ½”) hose or welded hard pipe connection
KPM KS6: 50mm (2”) hose or welded hard pipe connection
Process pressure
Maximum pressure: 25 bar (370 psi)
The minimum operating pressure required is a function of the sample consistency.
KPM KS2 and KS/4 min. process pressure: KS/6 min. process pressure:
0 - 3 %  0.5 bar (7 psi) below 8% 1.0 bar (15 psi) 3 - 5 % 1.0 bar (15 psi) over 8% 2.0 bar (30 psi) 5 - 8 % 2.0 bar (30 psi)
Sample flow
The sample flow is a function of process pressure, fiber type and consistency. The flow diminishes at higher consistencies. KS/4 and KS/6 piston stroke opening and piston orientation are adjustable.
