The installation location of the sampling system in relation to bulk material sampling is very important and can significantly affect the quality and representativeness of the samples taken. Some aspects that need to be taken into account when choosing the installation site are:
- Access to the material stream: The sampling location should be chosen in such a way that there is good access to the material flow and representative samples can be taken. This may vary depending on the type of bulk material and the specific plant.
- Safety: The location should be chosen in such a way as to ensure the safety of the operating personnel. This may mean that the location is far enough away from potentially hazardous areas and that appropriate protective measures are in place.
- Convenience: It is also important to choose a place that is convenient for operating personnel to reach and operate.
- Disruption of the process: The location should be chosen in such a way that the sampling disturbs the normal operation of the plant as little as possible.
- On-site conditions: The location should also be chosen taking into account the specific conditions on site, such as temperature, humidity, dust content and vibration, to ensure that the sampling unit and the samples themselves are not negatively affected.
Therefore, the selection of the installation site is an important aspect in the planning and implementation of bulk material sampling.
