Sampling Hub Services

Helping organisations extract the maximum value from their metal recovery.

Do you require a greater understanding of your metal content?

Alfred H Knight’s specialist sampling hub facilities provide a platform for organisations to increase their sampling capacity and build a profile of materials in transit, prior to arrival at the end receiver.

Whether you’re a recycler, reprocessor or smelter, if you need expertise in building or operating a sampling hub, or have materials that you need to have independently assessed for quantity and quality, we can provide a solution.



Our sampling hubs receive material at an industrial scale and generate representative samples ready for analysis at our group laboratories. All operations work to recognised ISO methods and standard operating procedures to ensure the highest accuracy.

With over 140 years of experience in the inspection and analysis of metals and minerals, we are trusted by organisations around the world to deliver reliable results. We draw on this experience when developing sampling hub projects, so that they fit within our network of operations across the global supply chain, to meet the expectations of our clients.
