MSS Engineering

Getting consistently representative samples of bulk cargos is vital to the economic contracts that are struck between buyers and sellers of such products.

To be most effective, these systems must be designed, sited and operated in a way that produces accurate, unbiased samples acceptable to both parties.

SGS mechanical sampling systems (MSS) are designed and constructed to address these concerns and produce accurate samples, reliably and repeatedly. Our mechanical sampling system services team offers excellence in a number of key areas:

Accurate Specifications

Many mechanical sampling systems are purchased and installed through a bidding procedure. SGS MSS specifications are complete and accurate, so can go out for bid knowing that all bids received can be compared on an equal basis. We also provide piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) and specify basic PLC programming needs. Since SGS is not a construction firm, you can be sure of getting a design that is right for your needs, rather than an over-engineered set of plans.  

Your Input

Your team is involved in the design process, ensuring that the layout and controls meet your specific needs. This means you get the information that you need to monitor the system and ensure that it operates properly. The final mechanical sampling system drawings and specifications allow you to add your general terms and conditions, safety and site specific requirements. Contact us to learn how SGS mechanical sampling engineering services can design a system that meets your unique product quality and handling needs.

Technological Excellence

We use the latest in 3D CAD software to develop system layouts that comply with your unique site requirements. You can then present the conceptual drawings to a non-technical audience such as a port authority or other stakeholders. As well, these 3D views help the engineering team evaluate the construction constraints and operational issues in the proposed design, yielding a design that is more fit-for-your-purpose.


The SGS deliverables include an itemized budget estimate for your project. This estimate includes optional additional capabilities of the system, allowing you to explore options with a full understanding of budget implications.
Trust SGS mechanical sampling systems engineering services for the confidence that results when you know your correctly designed MSS will produce accurate, reliable results, every time, anywhere in the world.
