Routine maintenance plays an important role in keeping Cross Belt Sampling Systems operating effectively. Here are some tips to help you maintain your Cross Belt Sampler.

Cutter Wiper

The most common maintenance item for cross belt samplers is adjustment of the cutter wiper. The cutter wiper is attached to the outside surface of the rear plate on the sample cutter, and is intended to provide positive contact with the conveyor belt during the collection of a sample increment.
