Sample Collection

publication date: Oct 29, 2013
author/source: Endecotts Limited

Endecotts can supply a wide variety of sample collection probes for all types of sample collection.

sample CollectionSample Dividers: These hand held sample dividers will subdivide material samples into two smaller portions by a single pass or further subdivisions can be attained by multiple passes. The important feature of Endecotts sample dividers is that each subdivision retains the characteristics of the original sample.

They are produced in stainless steel with slot widths of either 6.35 mm (1/4 in) or 12.7 mm (1/2 in).

Sample Scoops: Heavy duty sample scoops produced in highest quality 316 stainless steel.
Crevice free to reduce contamination and easy to clean. Radiused corners for easy cleaning.

Powder Lance: Manufactured from high quality 316 stainless steel for the collection of large volume samples of cohesive powders. Along one side of the lance is a slot one edge of which forms a scraper.  The sampler is inserted into the bulk and rotated - the scraper simply scoops sample into the slot. The screw tip can be removed and the sample pushed out into a suitable container using the sample ejection rod.

Sack Bag sampler: Specially designed with a 'chisel' end to enable samples to be taken through the sides of a sack or bag. 
A bottle adapter can be used to take samples of 250 ml or 500 ml. The open ended version allows as much sample as required to be poured out into a bag or other receptacle.

1. Pierce the bag through the side of the sack using the sampler.
2. Angle the sampler downwards to allow the sample to flow into the sampler tube.
3. Seal the hole

Sleeve Sampler: Ideal for taking samples of free flowing powders and granules from depths of 

2,500 mm. Inserting the sampler into the bulk forces sleeve up sample chamber to close opening. At required depth pull the sampler up enough to open the chamber and allow the sample to fill it.

Slot Sampler: The Slot Sampler is ideal for taking samples of free flowing powders and granules, even slightly cohesive powders where a large volume of sample is required without the need to retain the distribution from different depths.

A rotating sleeve is used to open and close slots in a hollow core and fill with sample. The sample can be recovered by simply tipping it out through the open end of the handle of the sampler. A bottle can be fitted to the sampler for easier handling.

Sample can be discharged from the open end of the slot sampler or directly into a sample bottle.

Pocket Sampler: Similar to the Slot Sampler above but with pockets in the inner rod for taking a set of multi-level samples from free flowing powders and granules. The sampler is simple to use and comes with a removable tip for thorough cleaning.

Tip Sampler: The Tip Sampler is designed for heavy duty applications and manufactured in 316 stainless steel in standard nominal lengths of 600 mm, 1000 mm & 1500 mm.  It is similar to the sleeve sampler but with an outer tube and inner rod. The tube slides back to reveal a collecting cavity behind the tip. Once at the required depth the sleeve is slid back, allowing the cavity to fill with sample. The sleeve is closed and the probe withdrawn.
