Product News: Representative Sample Division for Correct Analysis

23 Sep 2011

Retsch has introduced the new PT 100 rotating sample divider.

An error free and comparable analysis is closely linked to accurate sample handling. Only a sample representative of the initial material can provide meaningful results. This can be achieved by using a rotating sample divider, such as Retsch’s new PT 100. It divides the sample so that the composition of each of the 6, 8 or 10 fractions corresponds exactly to that of the original bulk sample. This applies to both fine-powdered and coarse materials up to 10 mm feed size. The material feed and dividing processes take place automatically and without loss of material.

The benefits of the PT 100 include:

• Extremely high division accuracy
• Modular design
• Extraction of 6, 8 or 10 samples
• Automatic material feed via synchronized feeder
• Easy clamping of laboratory bottles with “snap fit” system

The new rotary tube divider PT 200 allows for the representative, dust-free division and reduction of larger volumes of bulk goods. The ratio of the fractions is freely adjustable. Both dividers feature digital time setting and comfortable quick-release clamps.
