Powder Sampler
The PS sampler can be left completely unattended while providing repeatable and representative samples. Ideal for sampling fine powders, the unit collects samples from pneumatic conveying systems and can be constructed of either carbon or stainless steel. Key features are total product cleanout and a limit switch that ensures completion of the sampler’s cycle.

Bulk Solid Samplers
These units sample free-flowing or non-free-flowing powders, pellets, flakes, granules, grain, or friable materials. Typical products sampled include pellets, cement, chemicals, resins, and powders, along with slurries from gravity lines or dilute- and dense-phase horizontal pneumatic transfer lines. The range of samplers includes point, strip, crosscut, and conveyor belt designs. Special alloys and coatings for wetted materials are available for demanding applications.
