What is industrial Sampling?

Highlights. Extract samples of free-flowing materials such as coal, aggregate, wood chips, plastics and liquid. Eliminates issues inherent with hand-sampling methods and provide representative and repeatable samples.

What do grain samplers do?

The Grain Sampler is responsible for performing grain grading, sampling and processing according to the procedures under the United States Grain Standards Act and other applicable state and federal regulations.

What is an auger sampler?

Auger Sampling Systems are utilized to sample stationary bulk materials from trucks, railcars, barges, and stockpiles. These samples are utilized to establish the commercial value of the coal or to allow the operator to blend coals efficiently.

How does HPLC autosampler work?

HPLC autosamplers are automated tools designed to quickly and accurately load samples to be run through a high performance liquid chromatograph so they can be analyzed by having their components separated, identified, and quantified.

What is the difference between soil auger and core sampler?

The auger bores a hole to a desired sampling depth and then is withdrawn. The auger tip is then replaced with a tube core sampler, lowered down the borehole, and driven into the soil at the completion depth. The core is then withdrawn and the sample collected.

What tool is used for soil samples?

Push probes, hammer probes, and bucket augers (Figure 1) are commonly used because they are capable of taking uniform samples with depth. Figure 1. Examples of soil sampling equipment: a soil push probe, hammer probe, and bucket auger. Along with a probe, a clean plastic bucket should be used.

What is HPLC detector?

HPLC UV detectors are used with high performance liquid chromatography to detect and identify analytes in the sample. A UV visible HPLC detector uses light to analyze samples. By measuring the sample’s absorption of light at different wavelengths, the analyte can be identified.

How do you collect soil samples?


  1. Divide the field into different homogenous units based on the visual observation and farmer’s experience.
  2. Remove the surface litter at the sampling spot.
  3. Drive the auger to a plough depth of 15 cm and draw the soil sample.
  4. Collect at least 10 to 15 samples from each sampling unit and place in a bucket or tray.
