Sentry Introduces Hygienic Automatic Samplers
Sentry Equipment HPR point sampler

Sentry Equipment, a global provider of sampling and analysis technologies, offers two new hygienic automatic samplers, the HPR point sampler and HRX strip sampler. These two samplers are new additions to the full Sentry portfolio of automatic samplers that minimize food risk from Food Grade and Hygienic to 3-A Certified.   
 
The new samplers are ideal for low-moisture food production facilities that have high/medium hygiene classification zones and products that are sensitive to contamination and threats to food safety.
 
The HPR point sampler automates sampling of free-flowing materials such as granules, powders, flakes, or pellets from positive or negative pressure systems. The HPR takes a sample when its solenoid-controlled air cylinder moves a sample tube in and out of the product stream. The sample is then discharged to a collection container.  
 
The HRX automatic strip sampler automates sampling of dry free-flowing materials such as granules, powders, flakes, pellets, grain, or seed from positive or negative pressure systems, gravity chutes, and hoppers. The HRX takes a sample when its solenoid-controlled air cylinder moves a sample tube in and out of the product stream. While in line, the tube continuously takes a sample and discharges it through a flexible hose to a collection point.
 
These new hygienic automatic samplers closely follow the strict standards of various certifying agencies and technical reports and meet or exceed minimum food protection and sanitation criteria for materials, design, fabrication and construction. In addition, the HPR and HRX powder and solid samplers are easy to clean and sanitize, reducing the potential for cross contamination of microbes. All product contact surfaces dismantle for inspection without tools.  
 
Sampled product characteristics are not changed by either of these samplers because no moving parts convey the product to the sample container. Sample size and frequency can be changed at the sampler’s controller.
