Sample handling options

Combined samples automatically

Q-Mixer automated sampling system collects samples into a bag, ready to be sent to a laboratory. Alternatively, samples can be placed into a supplier and material-specific Q-Mixer mixing tank, in which a day or load-specific combined sample is formed and prepared for laboratory analysis.

The number of mixing tanks is adjustable by customer’s needs, and more tanks can be added later. The mixing tanks, with their accessories, can be placed directly into the operational container, which is manufactured and tested at the metal workshop, and completely ready for installation at sampling hall. The sampling station can also be tailored with space for a fuel laboratory, allowing samples to be analysed immediately on site instead of transporting them elsewhere for analysis.

Automated bagging unit

Q-Robot can be combined with an automatic bagging machine that bags the samples taken by the robot completely automatically. Q-Robot drops the sample taken from the load to the bagging machine, where the sample is sealed in an airtight bag. A label printer integrated into the bagging machine prints and attaches an identification label to the sample, after which the sample bag moves along a conveyor into a collection container for samples. The sample bags can be retrieved from the container for measurement in the laboratory at a suitable time, for example, daily. The bagging machine is extremely fast and efficient and does not require manual labor

Sampling hall

Fast and Cost-Effective Solution

As part of our comprehensive sampling solution, Prometec also provides Q-Robot halls. These halls are constructed using a lightweight, PVC-covered steel frame, offering both durability and flexibility. The frame structures within the hall are designed for Q-Robot track mounts, and the hall itself is fully customizable to meet the specific needs of our customers. For instance, it can be tailored to accommodate varying truck lengths.
