Modular Automated System of Sampling and Sample Preparation M-SAOP

Posted on

M-SAOP System consists of a Sampler (bucket, sweep-type or auger) and a Module with sample preparation equipment.

The System is affective for sampling and sample preparation of coal of any moisture as well as sticky coal prone to smearing crusher sieves. This System is designed according to the Customer technical requirements and can be adjusted for any other raw materials, such as ore, coke and other. Such Systems are suitable for power stations, preparation plants, ports.

Installation example

This example system consists of a swing-arm sampler, module with sample preparation equipment and a waste returning elevator.

System layout may differ from the picture and is totally customisable.

Samples are taken from the belt surface by the swing-arm sampler using the bucket up to 450 mm wide. Samples are transferred into the feeder by the skip loader.

A metal detector installed on the belt surface protects the feeder from metal parts which may bring the crushing equipment out of action. The detector just makes the system stop when any metal parts are detected on the belt.
