Sentry products play an essential role in the manufacturing operations of its customers. “We are a manufacturer that helps other manufacturers improve their processes,” says Rick Steinke, vice president of operations of the Oconomowoc, Wis.-based company.
The company manufactures equipment to capture and analyze representative steam, water, solid, powder, gas, liquid or slurry samples directly from its customers’ process streams. Markets served by the company include power generation, oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical and petrochemical, cement, mining and pharmaceutical. “Whether it’s someone producing gasoline or consumer products such as shampoo, ice cream or orange juice, we have the ability to tap into their process stream and capture a representative sample for reliable and accurate quality analysis,” Steinke adds. “We help our customers make sure their products are being manufactured within specification and regulations, all while keeping their operators safe and protecting the environment and their plant assets.”
The sampling equipment manufactured by Sentry Equipment is installed directly into its customers’ process streams. Sampling solutions can be engineered and customized to each customer’s specific manufacturing environment. “We can look at their application and tell them the type of equipment we can engineer to perform reliable and accurate sampling in a particular part of their operation,” Steinke says. “We have the deep engineering expertise to advise customers the best way to capture a representative sample in any part of their process.”
