On display will be a working model of the Splitter and Mark and Matt will be pleased to explain the fundamentals behind the design and manufacture of the newest sample splitter available to the drilling industry.

Metzke has spent 6 years developing the Metzke Splitter, with third party testing and a number of field trials producing representative samples on a repetitive basis.

The Metzke Splitter is now truly recognised as a leading sampling device and is made evident by the number of units that continue to be sold globally.

Be sure to catch up with Mark and Matt and discuss how Metzke can assist with your sampling needs.


The Metzke Splitter;

Assumes that the sample feed into the splitter is biased, and uses a patented oscillating distributor to distribute the material evenly over the sample cutters. Will run at up to 300 rpm safely, producing up to 10 times more cuts per sample interval than existing splitters. The oscillating mechanism promotes the flow of material from the drop box, speeding up the sample process. Works equally well in dry or wet sampling Boasts a self-cleaning device preventing sample hang up, drastically reducing lost production time when compared to other splitters.
