In the paper industry, consistency control is critical and being able to obtain a proper sample plays a key part. The sample must be representative, repeatable and obtained by the employee safely. To save on expenses, many plants will use a ball valve but ball valves are unlikely to give a representative sample.
Specifically designed consistency samplers can be either manual, for easily accessible locations, or pneumatic, for hard to reach areas. For best results, the sample should be taken in the same location as where the consistency transmitter is monitoring.
