Sentry Equipment/Rebuild-It Services will be closed from Monday, December 26th through Friday, December 30th. We will reopen on Monday, January 2nd.
The Sentry Model D2 takes a sample when a solenoid-operated actuator rotates a slotted sample tube through the product flow. Simultaneously, a motor-driven auger draws the sample to the discharge point.
A strip sampler captures a sample strip across the diameter of a process stream, and is used in situations where product segregation exists. Product characteristics are not affected by the sampler, and sample size can be changed at the sampler controller.
With representative sampling, characteristics of each sample match that of the entire lot or batch – so samples are repeatable, leading to accurate sample analysis data. Automatic sampling ensures a sample can be easily and safely obtained with no need for direct human interface or interference. This ensures sample integrity as well as operator safety.
