By Fritz van Sittert | Director at Paterson & Cooke

Paterson & Cooke Plants & Products has developed a Mobile Metallurgical Sampler (MMS) to determine the potential loss of valuable material or to determine process/screening efficiency. The MMS is designed to eliminate the difficulty of getting a representative sample of large flow, low density streams. The unit operates with compressed air and slurry flow is monitored using a battery operated magnetic flow meter.
