Because errors in sampling have a greater impact on an analytical result than sample preparation or analytical testing, ALS offers a range of sampling services and sampler system evaluations that provide assurance in this area. Sampling services include strip sampling services which are used to determine the washability performance of blocks of underground coal. These services can also be used at coal preparation plants to determine the separation efficiency. Sampler system evaluations include audits and bias tests.
ALS understands the importance of using the correct sampling processes to obtain a suitable sample and has a well-defined training process that consistently delivers this service.
ALS is invested in ways to deliver sample plant audit reports quickly and reliably. ALS has also invested in tools to collect stop-belt samples safely and quickly.
