I am faced with a challenge of finding an appropriate sampling system that would work in a launder. There is limited space between the equipments that are connected by the launder. It has to be across.

There are a number of key design factors to consider:

What is spacing
What is vertical drop
What are dimensions of the launder
What is particle size distribution etc?

If the sample is for metal accounting, consider dropping the flow into a sump and pumping back to the second vessel and using a proper cross-stream sampler. If it is a process control sample, you can consider using an isokinetic shark fin sampler, but this is technically an incorrect sample and you are likely to have bias problems.
