Are you required to take a sample of the product you are unloading? If so, Northern Platforms has designed and patented the NP Sampler, a device that allows you take samples during the loading / unloading process. Common sampling methods for tanker trucks, pneumatic trailers and railcars require a dip sample be taken from the top hatch of the vehicle being unloaded. However, many people retrieving the samples are put at risk while trying to retain the sample. The NP Sampler allows the operator, truck driver or technical representative to safely retain a sample of the product while standing on the ground.
