Let's say you've got a big order for a dry powdered food product and you need to be sure the product fits the customer's specifications before it's shipped.

Or perhaps you need to ensure that your chemical material doesn't move above a certain level of volatility. To accomplish these tasks, you'll need to sample and test the material. This requires using some type of sampler -- a device that will enter the flowing material stream, capture a quantity of that material, and extract a sample for quality control or other analysis.
