Numerous customers use QMI® Aseptic Sampling products for process monitoring. QMI products are popular due to ease-of-use and a design to prevent environmental contamination of the sample. When installing equipment in process lines and tightening nuts, some people show off their muscle strength with too much torque. Other people don’t want to use a wrench.
Our tip for installing the QMI Aseptic Samplers is: use a wrench for a happy medium of torque. First, hand tighten the nut. Next, use a wrench for an additional 1/8th turn of the nut. Not too little, not too much. Then you are ready to take an aseptic sample!
