English term or phrase:flap
4.9 Sampling from the slat conveyor of a continuous process plant
Removable container, of suitable design.
NOTE 1 Sampling from a slat conveyor may be carried out using a specially constructed sampling
flap fitted on the underside of the slat conveyor.
NOTE 2 The sampling slot shall be the full width of the slat and fitted with a timer allowing
discharge of four slat lengths of material charge into a removable container.
NOTE 3 The advantages of this method are as follows:
- material is immediately available for control testing for the plant;
- observation of material can detect errors in the product at an early stage;
- there is minimal risk to the sampler’s personal safety;
- there is no risk of an unrepresentative sample being taken due to aggregate segregation.
The disadvantages of this method are as follows:
- there is uncertainty of precise location of material in the pavement;
- the sample is taken from a limited quantity of material;
- special equipment is required.
