Manual sampling tools
Open-ended probes are widely use for grain sampling.
Spiral probes are highly recommended for sampling grains because foreign material is likely to be heaviest near the bottom of a trailer. The openings on the inside tube rotate so that it opens first at the bottom and then in gradual steps to the top. This assures a fair proportion of grain samples from the bottom levels as well as from the top.
Grain collected in open-ended grain probes is released by turning the probe upright, allowing the sample to flow from the handle into a container.
Our brass probes have an outside diameter of 1 3/8″ and are of double-tube construction with heavy bronze points. Openings are 3-3/8″ L x 7/8″ W.
We carry two models of brass grain probes:
- 8’ open-ended probe
- 8’ spiral open-ended probe
We offer a spiral open-ended aluminum probe that is 6’ (2 m) in length. You have the option to add a T-handle that makes it easier to insert the probe in the grain.
The tube material is duralumunium that is anodize coated to ensure a low weight and long lifespan of the probe. The redesigned coned tip and removable T-handle make it easier to insert the probe in a load of grain and reduces the chance of flexing or even break the probe.
- Low weight
- Metal cone tip that will serve the entire lifespan of the probe if used properly
- Durable tube packaging for transportation and storage
- Removable metal handgrip (optional add-on)
