Usage area

The sample divider is the most neglected device in the quality evaluation chain of agricultural grain when delivery takes place. Collection samples are produced in accordance with a fixed number of sampling points. The sample that is acquired in this way usually weighs 5–8 kg. Modern analysis devices required between 300–1000 g.


Switch on sample divider and put the sample into the feed funnel. The surrounding distributor pipe passes the eight variably adjustable openings inside the device. The sub-samples are taken to the collection trays alternately via a tube system. The excess material flows through the middle and can be collected in a collection container or taken away via a pneumatic transportation system. The yellow scale on the front of the sample divider indicates the dividing ratio.

The Vario 1G sample divider is also available with a built-in electric actuator (actuation cylinder) and associated PC software. The device can be used in a single work operation to divide the initial sample, whereby either the size of the subsample or a fixed divided sample / subsample can be chosen.
