Guide to Representative Sampling
Learn the many benefits of representative sampling and get answers to your representative sampling questions
The Sentry HPR automatic hygienic point sampler automates sampling of free-flowing materials such as granules, powders, flakes or pellets from positive or negative pressure systems. A point sampler captures samples from a point in a process stream and often is used when the material is homogeneous.
Ideal for low moisture food production facilities that have high/medium hygiene classification zones and products that are sensitive to contamination.
The Sentry HPR point sampler combines proven representative sampling technology with a sanitary, fast-clean design that nearly eliminates the potential for bacterial build up. 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 obtained easily and safely with no need for direct human interface or interference. This ensures sample integrity as well as operator safety.
