Sentry SC Sample Cutter

Part #
Sentry SC

The Sentry Model SC sample cutter is designed to reduce the size of a sample obtained by a primary sampler when the primary sampler provides an excess volume of sample. The material enters a pendulum which swings back and forth over an adjustable stationary pelican. The material falls into the opening of the pelican and is diverted through a flexible hose to a collection point. The excess material is returned to the main process flow.

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.

Suitable for: Pellets, powders, flakes, granules, grain, seed and slurries
