SGS uses proven designs for mechanical sampling equipment. We provide you with a unique solution to your specific bulk cargo handling needs.

Fertilzers

Our mechanical sampling systems (MSS) are well-engineered, cost-effective, low maintenance and comply with all relevant sampling standards. Contact us for full details, specifications and options for our complete line of MSS equipment including:

Cross Belt Sampler

  • Suitable for installation on most conveyors 
  • Minimum disturbance of conveyed material 
  • Belt swept clean of fine material  
  • Suitable for a wide range of particle sizes and conveyor capacities 
  • Constant cutter velocity while passing through material stream
  • Minimizes spillage

Oscillating Chute Sampler

  • Adjustable sampling frequency for intermittent operation
  • May be designed for a wide range of particle sizes
  • May be installed at the head end of a belt feeder, in a vertical section of chute or immediately below a suitable crusher

Cross Bucket Sampler

  • May be installed at the head end of a conveyor with insufficient height for a chute-type sampler 
  • May be designed to transfer samples horizontally for some distance
  • Suitable for abrasive materials and time or mass-based sampling
  • May be designed for a wide range of particle sizes
  • Suitable for most head chutes that include a deflector plate

Swing Arm Sampler

  • Suitable for high capacity conveyors and applications with restricted height
  • Suitable for sticky materials 
  • Reduced installation time and no need for modifications of existing head chute
  • Suitable for time or mass based sampling
  • Constant cutter velocity during sampling

Pivoting Reverse Spoon Sampler

  • May be installed at the head end of a conveyor
  • Well suited for abrasive or sticky materials and time or mass-based sampling
  • Ideal for chutes that include a deflector plate and high capacity conveyors and large increment masses
  • May be designed for a wide range of particle sizes

Linear Diverter Chute Sampler

  • May be installed at the head-end of a conveyor or in a suitable vertical section of chute
  • Well suited for abrasive and sticky materials
  • Suitable for time or mass based sampling
  • May be designed for a wide range of particle sizes
  • Suitable for most head chutes that include a deflector plate

Cross Belt Secondary/Tertiary Sampler

  • Suitable for secondary, tertiary and physical sampling
  • Minimum disturbance of conveyed material
  • Belt swept clean of fine material due to scrapers and contoured belt
  • Suitable for a range of particle sizes up to 75 mm
  • Constant cutter velocity while passing through the material stream

Slotted Belt Sampler

  • Sample cutter and rejects transfer on conveyor in one unit
  • Sample increments report directly to the storage canister
  • Minimum air circulation around the sample canister
  • Cutter lips kept clear by rotary cleaning brush
  • Indexing rotary sample collector may be built into the sampler thus avoiding blockage of transfer chutes

Vezin Rotary Sampler

  • May be installed in a suitable vertical section of chute or pipe
  • Un-sampled material (rejects) pass vertically through the sampler
  • Risk of blockages minimized
  • Fully enclosed thus preventing sample loss or contamination

Rotary Sample Collector

  • Sample integrity ensured by fully enclosed body
  • Automatic canister indexing function
  • Heavy duty plastic, stainless steel or galvanized steel sample canisters available
  • Designed for 4 to 12 canisters with 20 to 200 liter capacity
  • Operator safety ensured by door safety interlock on sample canister access door
  • Canisters positively located on a turntable

Reliable, well-designed mechanical samplers are one of many services provided by SGS, a trusted name in mechanical sampling.
