AMS sludge and sediment samplers retain relatively undisturbed samples from non-cohesive materials, including underwater sediment in shallow lakes, streams, and various types of impoundments.
The samples can be used for sediment profile descriptions, and geotechnical analysis. Samples for chemical analysis can also be obtained, but they are not suitable for EPA Level III or Level IV analysis for volatile organic compounds. These samplers are primarily used for shallow sediment sample retrieval, but deeper samples may be collected from pre-augered holes. Many of our sludge and sediment samplers may be used with or without liners. They are also very portable.
For additional information on AMS sludge & sediment sampling equipment see the AMS Catalog.
AMS meets the challenge of recovering representative samples of saturated materials by offering a variety of sludge and sediment sampling products.
AMS sludge and sediment samplers are designed to retain samples from non-cohesive materials, including underwater sediment in shallow lakes, streams, and various types of impoundments. They can be used to take undisturbed samples for geotechnical analysis and are capable of taking high-quality samples for chemical analysis.
They are primarily used ....
AMS sludge and sediment sampling kits include everything you need to collect relatively undisturbed samples from non-cohesive materials and various types of impoundments.
The Multi-Stage Sediment Sampler Kit uses the advanced multi-stage sludge core tip, plastic soil core catcher, and liner to prevent loss of the sample upon retrieval.
The AMS SBS System is ideal for discrete interval sediment sampling in rivers, lakes, wetlands, and estuaries because it stops caving sediment.....
AMS offers a variety of dredges designed for sampling sand and silt as well as most types of non-cohesive material.
AMS sampling dredges are placed onto the bottom sediment, then closed and pulled up to retrieve a sample. Careful release of the sample distributes the sample approximately as it appeared on the bottom – making sediment profile description possible. The sample is not suitable for most geotechnical analysis and does not provide samples suitable for high-quality chemical analysis fo....
