Fully automated sampler.

The sampler collects representative samples from the load before unloading. Q-Robot is fast, accurate and fully automated.

Known facts

Accurate and fast sampling with Q-Robot

Fully automated Q-Robot is a patented sampling solution that takes representative samples of the whole load quickly and accurately, improving sampling efficiency and quality management. Q-Robot has revolutionized the sampling and quality management of our customers such as heat and power producers, pulp mills, biorefineries, and pellet producers who work in several different areas of industries.

Remarkably more accurate samples

Q-Robot is significantly more accurate than any manual sampling solution. Reliable and representative samples have improved the accuracy of quality determination, which has resulted, for example, in 2–8 % smaller error in efficiency calculations of power plants.

Reliable and unbiased samples

As Q-Robot is fully automated, and the need for human labour is minimized, the solution is completely unbiased. The sampling process is transparent for every party, and sampling principles are generated in compliance with the standards of industry in question.

Efficient sampling solution for plants

Our experts will execute an in-depth research of a plant’s current sampling state, operating environment, and aspired outcome. As a result, a client gets a proposition for development procedures. The proposition can also be used in tendering for service providers.
