Sample Collection and Preparation Tools

Thermo Scientific Sample Collection and Preparation ToolsMake an informed decision during grass roots exploration. Improve your ore processes at an operating mine. Whatever your mining and exploration requirements are, you need  information that's accurate, precise, and fast. With the proven analytical performance of Thermo Scientific portable XRF analyzers in the field at all stages of the exploration, mining, and refining processes, the limiting factor in achieving better  correlation with laboratory results is proper sample preparation. Thermo Scientific sample collection and preparation tools deliver a full lab-to-field solution for on-site XRF analysis in exploration and mining.

These compact, portable, battery-powered tools provide everything required to deal with geological material for rapid elemental analysis in the field...complementing the already superior performance of our portable XRF analyzers, such as the handheld Niton® XL3t GOLDD+ analyzer and the Niton FXL field x-ray lab. You benefit from a suite of tools that generate high-quality analytical data within minutes, rather than days or weeks.

All the Tools of the Trade

The Thermo Scientific Direct Rock Sampler Kit and the Thermo Scientific Electric Hammer Mill Kit offer a unique, complementary solution for XRF analysis in the field.











See how Thermo Scientific Sample Collection and Preparation Tools continue the tradition of bringing the lab to the field.

Direct Rock Sampler Kit

Operator with Thermo Scientific Direct Rock SamplerThe Thermo Scientific Direct Rock Sampler allows the collection of fine powders from a rock face. The device can be attached to either an AC (110/220V) or DC (18-24V) powered commercial angle grinder. The special diamond cutting blades easily generate a sample by cutting slots, or even making a line cut, on the rock face or drill cores. The powder is collected in a sample tube. This material can then be cupped or pelletized for XRF analysis. Proper sample collection and preparation can result in a spatially resolved, quantitative rock-face analysis in minutes, in the field.

Electric Hammer Mill Kit

Thermo Scientific Hammer Mill KitThe Thermo Scientific Electric Hammer Mill Kit includes the first 12VDC powered mill on the market. This powerful device, weighing less than 5 kg (11 lbs.), provides rapid milling of samples and delivers a homogenized, fine powder in just seconds. This mill provides hours of service on conventional automobile batteries. The jumper-cable-type connectors are designed for powering the mill directly from the battery posts on your field vehicle. Rock chip size must be less than 8 mm to feed the mill. Included in the kit is a "Crusher Tool" to reduce the size of large rocks.

Thermo Scientific Electric Hammer Mill

  • Crusher Tool
  • Stainless steel pellet press with pellet sleeves
  • Pellet press reamer
  • Thermo Scientific Field Mate Test Stand
  • Field Mate pellet sleeve insert
  • Sieve 250µm
  • Miscellaneous sample preparation accessories
