The Gilson Laboratory Split-O-Matic Splitters quickly and accurately reduce large samples of aggregates, ores, coal and other materials through up to three stages with a single pass. The user can select sample fractions of 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 using a selection lever.
These units have a higher capacity for processing bulk samples of granular materials into small fractions for efficient preparation of test specimens. There are many models to choose from, offering varying choices in chutes per stage, sample fractions, chute width, chute slope and maximum particle size to suit your application.
For best results, choose a splitter with chute width at least twice that of the material’s topsize to avoid bridging over chute openings. For coal or coke, or for materials with oblong pieces, Gilson recommends 3 to 4 times topsize.
Every Laboratory Splitter can be custom-ordered with special larger hopper and sample pans. Custom models may also be ordered with four or more chute stages for sample fractions smaller than 1/8.
