Sample valve symbol
This black and white sample valve symbol can represent a sampling valve or sampling system for sampling hazardous product from a pipeline for instance on your P&ID. Firstly, the white centre of the symbol represents the pipeline or the tank containing the media you wish to sample. Secondly the 3 circles and three tablets represent the sampled media.

Design of a chemical sampling system starts with representing the right information on the piping & instrumentation diagram and then backing this up with the process data for that sample point.
