Automatic Samplers

prd_samplerIntegrated Sampling & Bulk Weighing

When you need any of these features:

  • Lowest height in the industry
  • Full integration to the weighing operation
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Mountable in vertical or inclined position
  • Available in electric, air or hydraulic operation
  • USDA, Canadian, FGIS and NOPA approved

You should select the Gustafson Sampler

How can we say it’s the best?

Lowest height: We are able to reduce the overall height of the sampler because we supply both the bulk weighing scale above the sampler and the spout below, and are able to eliminate the transition pieces. For example our 20,000 BPH sampler is only 39″ tall and our 60,000 BPH is only 51″. Compare this to competitive products that are in excess of 84″. This saving in height can be used to provide additional upper garner capacity or to reduce the overall height of the system.

Full Integration: Because our scale system knows which rail car is being loaded we can print out a grade slip so that the inspector can drop it into the sample.

Stainless Steel: While competitive systems are made of painted mild steel, our system is all stainless steel, ensuring a long trouble-free life.

Installation Options: Samplers can be placed in a vertical position, or for non-FGIS applications at an incline below or above the scale.

Flexible Power: Samplers can be powered by the scale hydraulic or pneumatic system, or by 110 VAC.

Fully Approved System: The sampler is fully approved by all the legislative bodies, including USDA, Canadian, FGIS and NOPA (National Oilseed Processors Association).

prd_sampler_3Description: The model G Automatic Sampler is a versatile cross-cut sampler designed for free-flowing products. Products range from granules, powders, flakes, pellets and slurries.

Operation: It has an adjustable rate of travel. The ‘pelican-type’ head traverses across the flow on an arc to collect a sample. The sample flows through a flexible tube to a secondary sampling system.
