Sentry Equipment Corp. purchased the Gustafson Automatic Sampler product line from Bayer CropScience. The Gustafson sampler line provides sampling solutions for a variety of bulk solids including granules, flakes, powders, pellets and slurries, and serves a range of industries including cement, chemical, plastic, coal, feed/grain, food, dairy and fertilizer. This addition to Sentry's existing line of manual and automatic samplers for gases, liquids, slurries and bulk solids creates the most comprehensive line of products for process sampling applications in the world.
Sentry's product line includes closed loop needle and cylinder samplers, ISOLOK samplers, and sample coolers. For sanitary applications, Sentry has a range of 3-A certified products to meet the dairy industry's stringent sanitary standards. "All of these products equip our customers with the necessary tools that enable them to better analyze their processes, and as a result, improve their overall product quality and process control. We have developed a myriad of solutions that range from simple in nature to very complex. Whether the application calls for sampling milk, oil, high-pressure steam, cement or radioactive waste, Sentry Equipment Corp. has a solution," said Werra.
The integration of the Gustafson sampler product line is well under way, with full engineering and manufacturing operations dedicated to a smooth transition at Sentry's headquarters. Sentry has the core capabilities to design, manufacture, and service the existing Gustafson products, and the expertise to develop product and system enhancements and extensions in the future.
