Mechanical scoop belt-sampler
United Marine Aggregates at Greenwich Wharf carries out daily routine testing of aggregates being loaded into rail wagons. To facilitate regular joint sampling with rail-fed customers, remotely behind safety guarding, a robust pivoted sampling scoop was designed and installed.

Samples can now be taken from the moving conveyors, by lowering the scoop (pivoted centrally) into the stream of moving material, then pivoting the device, thus sliding the sample down the short integral chute into a sampling bag on the ground, thereby minimising manual handling. The ease of
use of the finished device has increased customer confidence in the conformance of the end product.
