Sample scoop

Dynamic Engineering Consultants can help you with your scoop sampling needs. For example, one of our clients had an existing sample scoop which was unable to keep up with the slurry flow. This resulted in spillage and unnecessary additional maintenance costs. Consequently our client requested Dynamic Engineering to design and supply a larger scoop to handle the flow. Following discussions with the client, the scoop was optimally design with finite element analysis to withstand this high flow. It was also enlarged to avoid spillage, while still being able to fit in the existing space.

Below the existing scoop is shown, the spillage can be clearly seen.

The next picture shows the 3D model we designed in accordance with our client’s requirements. This model is now ready to be analysed with Finite Element Analysis. In addition fabrication drawings were made.

Afterwards the scoop was fabricated and shipped to the client.

In addition Dynamic Engineering can design some manual sample scoops to easily obtain samples for metallurgists.

The manual scoop below has a long reach and a scooping mechanism at the handle to gain access in tight spaces.

Below is an example of a simpler manual scoop.

When analysing any new designs, the applicable Australian Standards are taken into account.
