The sampler is designed for sampling grain in barns, warehouses, from the body of cars, wagons, ship holds, etc. It is used in laboratories of grain-receiving and grain processing enterprises, feed industry, agricultural enterprises and organizations. Grain sampling is carried out according to GOST 13586.3-83. The hand sampler is available in two versions: four-level and five-level.
The probe consists of an outer dural body with inclined sampling holes at an angle of 9° relative to the sampler axis, an inner movable casing with sampling holes located along the sampler axis, handles with a limiter, and a tip.
To take a sample from a bulk of grain, the handles of the probe must be turned counterclockwise as far as it will go. Insert the sampler into the embankment to the required depth. Turning the handle clockwise, open the intake holes and continuing to turn further until it stops, close them. Remove the probe from the grain and pour the sample through the hole in the handle into a special box, where grain is accumulated with the mass necessary for analysis. The outer sampling holes are inclined relative to the inner sampling holes – this prevents the grain from being damaged or pinched during sampling.
