These automatic samplers extract representative samples from chutes, spouts, air slides, bins, conveyor belts, and pneumatic convey lines. The range of bulk solid samplers includes point, strip, crosscut, and conveyor-belt designs. Free-flowing and non-free-flowing materials-whether powders, pellets, flakes, granules, grain, or friable materials-can be sampled automatically. PLC-based controllers allow continuous sample cycling; the operator can program the time between samples. Special alloys and coatings for wetted materials are available for demanding applications.
