Let's Sample! PTS Automatic Sampler

7 Jul 2021  |
The PTS high-end automatic sampler can be used for taking representative samples of powders, granules, or flakes out of pneumatic conveying lines. By starting the sequence with an external signal, the sampler tube is moved inside the product stream by means of a pneumatic cylinder.

The product sample is taken from the line by an opening in the sampler tube. The overpressure in the pneumatic transport system facilitates a smooth flow of the sample into the sampling system where it is collected in a sample jar. The sample jar holder contains a pressure indicator and a manual valve with a filter socket to depressurise the sampling system before disconnecting the sample jar.
