Soil Core Samplers

Soil Core Samplers

Soil core sampling equipment is used to collect virtually undisturbed soil core samples for soil profiling and environmental investigations.

 

AMS offers soil core samplers, split soil core samplers, and multi-stage soil core samplers. All of these quality soil core sampling tools allow the user to collect soil core samples into removable liners. The split core soil core sampler also allows the user to open the soil core sampler body to view the soil core after sampling.

 

Soil core samples may be collected at the surface or from a pre-augered borehole.

 

To collect small diameter, soil cores at or near the subsurface, AMS also offers a variety of soil probes that may be used with or without liners.

 

*Note: When sampling from a borehole, AMS recommends using a planer auger to remove loose dirt from the borehole prior to retrieving your soil core sample.

  • Bulk Density Soil Sampling Kit
    Bulk Density Soil Sampling Kit
    This unique sampling kit comes with everything necessary to take accurate interval specific core samples to a depth of 3ft. The kit is ideal for sampling the soil surface, in auger holes or in profile pits. The Soil Sample Rings found in this kit are made from .062w SST tubing. These SST sample rings are ideal for laboratory studies and for undisturbed core samples. The volume of each 2” x 2” SST ring is 90.59 cubic centimeters. From this known volume and the weight of the sample liner, you will be able to calculate the bulk density of the soil sample. *An accurate determination of bulk density starts with proper sampling technique to ensure that the sample collected represents the soils natural condition.   Bulk Density Soil Core Sampler Exclusive Features:   Standard AMS Core samplers have a 1”+ gap between the tip of the core sampler and where the sample liner internal shelf begins. The sampler included in this kit has a much shorter 5/16” gap which provides a more representative core and reduces compaction as the soil enters the sampler. Liners and core sampler are held to extremely tight tolerances. Core Sampler Cap has a built in waste barrel which provides a full 2” of relief. This helps eliminate compaction from overdriving the sampler. It also eliminates the need to load multiple rings inside the sampler, which can cause sample blow by and skew sample calculations.   Kit includes: Core sampler cup, core sampler cap, hammer head cross handle or compact slide hammer attachment, 2-1/2” open face auger, 2-3/4” regular soil bucket auger, 2-3/4” planer auger, 2ft. extension rod, 18” rubber coated cross handle, 2” x 2” stainless steel rings (25) with their own aluminum carrying case w/ foam inserts, 2” plastic end caps (50), adjustable wrenches (2), auger cleanout tool, nylon cleaning brush, impact absorbing hammer, AMS deluxe carrying case with handles and wheels for added portability.
  • Soil Recovery Augers
    Soil Recovery Augers
    Use this soil auger to auger and collect soil core samples at the same time.   The AMS soil recovery auger is a special dual-purpose tool that allows the user to auger an access hole to a desired depth. After reaching the sampling point, the user may then insert a liner into the soil recovery auger to collect a soil core sample. This versatile soil auger AND sampler can be used for soil profiling, particle distribution and environmental site investigations.   Includes: soil recovery auger cylinder with either tungsten carbide hard-surfaced carbon steel or stainless steel bits, a hollow, stainless steel top cap with a bail attached and a stainless steel solid-vented top cap, plastic liner, plastic end caps, and a universal slip wrench. NOTE: Available in stainless steel. But stainless steel bits are not hard surfaced.   Compatible with 5/8" threaded extensions and cross handles. The liners used are 1/4" smaller diameter than the sampler cylinder. Specially shaped auger bits cut and lift the soil into the liner, rather than tearing through the soil. Please make sure any AMS samplers you intend to use together share a common connection type. See Connection Types for more information.
  • Soil Core Samplers
    Soil Core Samplers
    AMS Soil Core Samplers allow you to collect relatively undisturbed soil core samples from the subsurface or from pre-augered boreholes.   AMS soil core samplers collect relatively undisturbed soil core samples into liners that may be easily transferred to a lab for soil profiling or chemical analysis. The liner may also be extruded in the field for examination of the soil core sample. Soil core samples are available in carbon steel or stainless steel, and are sized by the outside diameter of the liner. Complete Soil Core Samplers Includes: Slide hammer, core cup and cap, 2 plastic end caps, and plastic liner.   Please make sure any AMS samplers you intend to use together share a common connection type.   See Connection Types for more information.  
  • Split Soil Core Samplers
    Split Soil Core Samplers
    Use the AMS Split Soil Core Samplers to easily extract relatively undisturbed soil core samples.   The split soil core sampler has a vertically split cylinder. You can use the split soil core sampler without a liner to collect relatively undisturbed soil cores for immediate field examination and testing. Or, it can be used with a liner for collection of relatively undisturbed, sealed soil core samples that are suitable for EPA Level III or Level IV soil analysis. Split soil core samplers include: Split soil core sampler cup set, split soil core sampler cap, plastic liner, 2 plastic end caps and universal slip wrench. Each set can be bought with a core tip, an auger tip, or both.   The split soil core sampler OD's are 1/2" larger than the liner size.   Please make sure any AMS samplers you intend to use together share a common connection type. See Connection Types for more information.
  • Multi-Stage Soil Core Sampler
    Multi-Stage Soil Core Sampler
    The AMS Multi-Stage Soil Core Sampler allows you to collect soil core samples of various lengths!   This stainless steel extendable soil core sampler collects 2" soil core samples up to 48" deep when the optional 12" multi-stage soil core sampler cylinder sections are attached. The complete multi-stage soil core sampler includes: Multi-Stage Soil Core Sampler base, solid cap, soil core tip, auger tip, 2" x 12" plastic liner, 2 plastic end caps and universal slip wrench.   *Order the optional 12" multi-stage soil core sampler sections separately.   Please make sure any AMS samplers you intend to use together share a common connection type. See Connection Types for more information.
