Sample Splitter

All analytical techniques produce results that truly only describe the small aliquot subjected to the specific test or measurement. How representative that is of the much larger, bulk material, one can only guess unless one is assured the material is 100% homogeneous.

Analysis and testing of powders for chemical assay and physical measurements, such as particle size, density and surface area, often requires a large sample quantity to be split into smaller amounts by, for example, spin riffling or rotary riffling. Therefore, it is necessary that the sub-sample shall be a representative sample of the initial lot or batch for reproducible and valid data.
