AUTOMATIC SAMPLE PROCESSING SYSTEM ON SWIVELLING ARM,
INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
A MOBILE SAMPLE RECEIVER BOX CONTAINING :
1. A cyclone style sample intake container with 10 litres capacity.
2. A mixing auger allowing homogenisation of the incoming sample. –Operation: the auger rotates during all the time of the sample intake (cf. fig. A).
3. The mobile receiver box is attached to a rotating arm (cf. fig. B). To position the intake hopper above an analyser, the swivel arm is moved through an incremental gearmotor.
4. The base of the intake hopper is provided with an electric outlet valve and a metering valve delivering 0.5 litres per stroke. The number of strokes is defined by the program as a function of the sample quantity to be analysed.
FIRST STOP: THE SAMPLE CLEANER (fig. C)
Sample cleaner type “QUATOR II”. Automatic determination of the impurity content of the incoming grain by 2-stage screening drums, dust evacuation and weighing operations
SECOND STOP: AQUA-TR+ INFRANEO analyser cascade (fig. D):
Simultaneous measurement of the moisture content, specific weight, grain temperature, and protein content.
THIRD STOP: MANUAL BAGGING MACHINE (fig. E):
It includes a hopper, a bagging system (1 litre bags), and an overflow for excess sample evacuation. Here, the metering valve opens and the receiver box is fully drained to be ready for the next sampling operation.
EXCESS SAMPLE EVACUATION (fig. F):
The evacuation of the excess material, impurities, and analysed grain is executed by means of 4 locks fitted with electric valves, having a capacity of 3x 4 litres and 1x 8 litres, respectively. A blower (pW: 1.6 or 2.2 kW depending on the distance to be covered) takes care of the evacuation. This installation requires just one electric enclosure and a PC + software/ programming. And, a compressor is needed to power the pneumatic sleeve valve.
IMPORTANT: S.A.R.A. II fits within rooms with a minimum ceiling height of 2.50 m.
