This slotted-vessel sampler is used for taking samples of slurry at free pipe, chute or sump outlets. This sampling principle is based on a slotted vessel that has a specified inlet gap set perpendicular to the inflow of material and can cover the full thickness of the slurry flow at a constant speed.
The slotted-vessel sampler moves from one of its stand-by positions, through the suspension flow and stops in the opposite position. As the sampler moves through the product flow at a constant speed, a representative sample is taken. The sample taken is diverted away and taken up in a trough. The sampler’s stand-by position is outside the slurry flow.
