Guide to Representative Sampling
Learn the many benefits of representative sampling and get answers to your representative sampling questions
The Sentry ISOLOK MSC automatic point sampler enables representative sampling of medium-viscosity products such as cream or single-strength orange juice. The ISOLOK MSC sampler delivers a fixed volume of sample with each cycle and includes direct mounting of wide-mouth labware plastic sample collection bottles (available in a variety of sizes). This sampler is conformant to 3-A Sanitary Standards (third-party verified) with a reliable, sanitary, easy-to-clean design with FDA-approved seals.
The sampler mounts onto the process line using a two-inch tri-clamp ferrule mount held with a clamp and gasket. Compressed air drives the sampler by forcing the plunger to reach into the process to capture a fixed volume of the material. Compressed air then acts on the opposite side of the piston to retract the plunger to a position that allows the sample to drop into a container. The operator is isolated from the process at all times by the sampler’s seal design, and the sample captured in the container is locked out from external influences to provide a truly representative sample.
