It is imperative that steam samples be as representative of the steam as possible in order to determine the quantity of impurities contained in the steam. Upon proper collection of a representative sample, an accurate measurement of the impurities contained in the steam can provide information that can be utilized to determine whether or not the steam purity is within the required range to preclude damage or deterioration of such downstream equipment as superheaters, turbines, dryers, etc. These impurities may be solids, liquids, or gases.
