Sample scooping equipment
I understand that there is a sample exctractor for taking out a small boat shaped sample from thick pipes and plates. These samples are used for creep testing and fatigue testing of miniature samples for the purpose of condition monitoring for power plants and refienries. I read in an article that the equipment is called " Rolls-Royce SSamTM 2 scoop sampling machine ".
Any idea who can give some information on this machine - source and application ?
