MOUSTICK is an automatic grain sampler designed to sample from material flows, such as grain flowing through any type of pipeline, hopper, chute, etc..., where it will pick a defined quantity of sample material from the grain travelling through the line.
It can be easily attached to any rounded surface (grain pipes, conducts) or flat surface (face plate at the top or bottom of a grain elevator, hopper beneath a weighbridge, a dryer or a cleaner, railcar unloading pit, etc.), so that MOUSTICK will allow sampling at any desired level in the grain transfer or transformation process.
Adjusting the frequency at which samples are being taken, and the duration of each sampling cycle e.g. 1 sampling cycle of 5 seconds' duration every 30 seconds, is made possible by a programmable electronic control unit.
The samples can be carried to the laboratory or any other point on the premises, either through gravity or pneumatically.
