Taking Product Samples from Containers or In-Line
Van Beek offers the easy-to-clean Sample Screw.

Checking your product during processing is very important to maintain quality. But how do you safely take a representative sample without having to shut down the whole process? Van Beek has developed the easy-to-clean Sample Screw for this purpose.

This machine takes representative product samples from containers, hoppers, or in-line (for example after an outlet or in a discharge pipe). Using a small screw conveyor, a sample of the material is taken safely from the product stream without disrupting the process. Even materials with poor running qualities can be controlled in this way because a screw is used.

Stringent hygiene requirements are not a problem for the Sample Screw. The sampler is easy to dismantle for quick and complete cleaning. It can be used in the dairy, food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industry. Samples can be taken for example of powders, flocks, granules, flakes, pellets, and slurries. The sample size and frequency can be adjusted.

The sampler is driven by its own air or electric motor (with gear unit) and is easy to insert in a production line. Whether this involves bunkers, silos, hoppers, or bulk transfer, in most cases little or no adjustments have to be made to your system. Only a small passage through the wall is enough to pass through the non-driven side of the Sample Screw.
