Benefits to the Geologist

Acurate and Representative Samples
  • The Sample Pro is in constant vibratory motion. Cuttings are thoroughly mixed within the sample tray, resulting in an accurate representation of the entire drilled interval.
  • Adjustable cover plates regulate the amount of drill cuttings being sampled.
  • Protected mesh screen at the base of the sample trays ensures no fines are lost.
  • 2 removable trays ensure that no sample interval is missed.
  • Simple sampling process increases likelihood that sample will be taken on time.

More Time to Interpret Samples

  • Standardized sieve plate and collector tray ensure sample quality is consistent from rig to rig, regardless of the level of experience of the rig hands.
  • Sample is typically cleaner and sieved to the proper size, saving the Geologist time in processing the sample.
  • Less supervision of sample collection frees up the Geologist’s time and reduces potential conflict with rig crew.

Benefits to the Rig Crew
