2" Tank Sludge Sampling Kit

Write a Review


Easily collect sludge samples from the bottom of petroleum tanks with this unique and user-friendly sampling kit.

Based on the popular design of the Multi-Stage Sludge & Sediment Sampling Kit, the components in this kit are similar, only they are made from lightweight aluminum. This proves to be crucial, as often tanks can be 50' plus in height; therefore, keeping your sampler and extension strand ‘lightweight’ is a necessity. Having a solid/rigid extension strand gives the operator the ability to push and twist the sampler deep into the sludge.

Two separate core tips come with this kit. The Valved Sludge Core Tip has a built in 1-way valve which resembles a door hinge. As the sampler is pressed into the sludge, the 1-way valve opens and fills the sampler. When the sampler is raised, the valve closes and traps any sediment and liquid inside the sampler. The Sludge Core Tip uses a disposable Plastic Core Catcher that fits on the end of a 2" Plastic Liner. As the sampler is pushed into the sludge, the core catcher teeth open, allowing the material to enter the sampler. As the sampler is raised, these teeth close and restrict the sample from falling out.

The specialized top cap of the sampler is also an important component of the kit. During deployment, the Check Valve Flap opens and allows excess air and water to escape through the oversized vent holes of the sampler top cap – eliminating pressure buildup. When the sampler is lifted, the Check Valve Flap closes over the vent holes and creates suction to assist in retaining the sample. There are four (4) 12” sampler body sections in this kit. Meaning, if necessary, a 4’ long sampler can be assembled. Extra 12” Soil Core Sampler Extension Sections may be purchased to create a longer sampler. Three (3) 4’ Aluminum Square Extensions are included with the kit. Extra extensions may be added to accomplish deeper depths.
