If the analyzer in your analytical sampling system requires gas, but the sample is liquid, the only option is to convert the liquid to gas. This process is called vaporization or flash vaporization. The objective is to convert a sample of all liquid to vapor instantly without changing the composition. It’s common to use a vaporizer, a pressure-reducing regulator with the capacity to transfer heat to the sample at just the right location, in a three-stage process.
