  2. Each super sack of carbon is lifted from the pallet and placed on the JRI scale to determine a net weight.
  3. Each super sack of carbon in the batch is auger sampled. I gram sample is taken for each pound of weight. 9 to 12 auger holes are made per super sack. Particular notice is taken to get the auger down to the bottom of the super sack.
  4. The weighed sample from each super sack is placed in a mixer.
  5. The bulk sample is blended for twenty minutes.
  6. The carbon sample is poured out of the mixer into sample buckets.
  7. In the event of excessive moisture the carbon sample is placed on a rubber mat and a sample is cut by cone and quartering.
  8. Where there is no excess water, the sample is passed through a riffle splitter.
  9. The sample is cut down to 4 equal samples.
  10. 1x sample for the client or representative. 1 x sample for JRI. 2 x samples as reserve which are held in safe keeping until the transaction is settled with the customer.
