Our Services
Quality Handling System Pty Ltd (QHS) specialises in the
design and manufacture of sampling systems and
equipment for bulk materials and slurries.
Our services include:
• New sampling systems and equipment.
• Upgrades to existing sampling systems.
• Rectification of problems in existing sampling systems,
including reliability and accuracy.
• Specialised sampling equipment for difficult locations.
• Engineering and consulting services for sampling
Our Experience
The company started operations in 1993 and quickly
developed into one of the largest suppliers of sampling
systems in Australia.
QHS sampling systems are used for collecting
representative samples from streams of bulk materials and
slurries. Materials sampled include coal, mineral ores,
processed minerals, aggregates, concentrates, fertiliser,
mineral sands, process by-products, limestone, cement,
grains, woodchips and various slurries.
From our base in Sydney, we have supplied systems and
equipment throughout Australasia, Asia, Europe, Africa and
the Americas.
QHS products range from sampling systems at mines and
processing plants to major multi-stage sampling systems
at import and export terminals, sampling flowrates up to
13,200 tonnes per hour.
Over 20 years of service,
a lifetime of expertise

Our Projects
The sampling projects undertaken by QHS have ranged from
small single stage samplers to very large 4-stage sampling
systems. QHS has designed and supplied the majority of the
sampling systems for the coal and minerals import and export
terminals on the east coast of Australia over the past 20 years.
These contracts have ranged in value up to $6 million AUD.
QHS’ clients include most of the major mining companies in
Australia, as well as import and export terminals, power stations
and processing plants. We have supplied sampling equipment
and services to the UK, New Zealand, PNG, Indonesia, Vietnam,
Laos, Taiwan, Philippines, China, Russia, Korea, Venezuela,
Egypt, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Finland.
Our Equipment
QHS offers a wide range of sampling equipment, designed
to suit different locations and different materials. Our range of
sampling equipment includes:
• Falling Stream Samplers – including inline and reverse
diverter chute samplers, pivoting reverse spoon samplers,
oscillating chute samplers, Vezin samplers, slotted belt
samplers, swing arm samplers and rotary cone dividers
• Cross Belt Samplers – these include additional features
to improve sampling accuracy, such as relative velocity
cutters and proper belt profiling
• Sample Belt Feeders, Conveyors, Bucket Elevators and
Screw Feeders
• Sample Crushers – of various types, designed to suit the
material and application
• Slurry Sampling Equipment
• Laboratory Preparation Equipment
• Electrical Control Systems

Sampling Systems
QHS is the major supplier of coal sampling
equipment in Australia. We have supplied almost
all of the new coal terminal sampling systems
and system upgrades in Australia since 1993.
This includes all of the 20 sampling systems at
the two largest coal ports, at Mackay (DBCT and
Hay Point terminals), and at Newcastle (PWCS
Carrington and Kooragang, and NCIG terminals).
QHS has supplied hundreds of samplers
and sampling systems to coal mines, coal
handling and preparation plants and
power stations.
QHS 2-Stage Coal Product Sampling System
These have ranged from small, single stage
samplers to large 3-stage sampling systems.
Many of these systems have been retrofitted into
existing coal plants.

Sampling Systems
Lead, zinc and copper concentrates can
be very sticky and easily lose moisture during
sampling. Generic sampling equipment is
usually not suitable for these materials.
QHS sampling equipment for concentrates has
been designed to suit the sticky nature of these
materials and to minimise the moisture losses.
It includes special chute designs with UHMWPE
liners and airlocks between sampling stages.
QHS has supplied sampling systems for
concentrates at mines, import and export
terminals and refineries in Australia and
