Posted by Sentry Equipment on 11/16/20 8:00 AM


The Sentry ISOLOK MSE automatic point sampler is designed for sampling toothpaste, peanut butter, tomato paste, juice concentrates – even rocket propellant. Like any piece of equipment, it sometimes needs repairs and maintenance. But it can be challenging to know how to make strategic decisions around maintaining sampling equipment. Here’s how to keep your ISOLOK MSE sampler working properly.

Seal Replacement challenges

The ISOLOK MSE has a variety of seal locations and sizes within its design. For some operators and maintenance professionals, properly maintaining the specialized parts on the ISOLOK MSE sampler can be challenging.

  • The amount of seals within the sampler can cause difficulty in isolating what might be causing errors
  • Incorrect placement of seals can cause poor function and allow air into the process stream
  • Incorrect seal replacement can cause the sampler to jam – which leads to unreliable sampling

Replacing seals and maintaining equipment can be confusing when just looking at a product manual, and IOMs and spec sheets can provide only so much information.
