Soil Samplers

Soil Samplers required for collection of undisturbed soil samples from a natural soil formation or fill are useful only when disturbance in soil structure is as little as possible. Although it is difficult to get a truly undisturbed soil sample an area ratio of 10% or less, which depends upon the thickness of sampler, is preferable for thin walled sampler of 100 mm or 150 mm diameter. The samplers supplied conform to IS:2132 and are provided with suitable holes or threads in the upper portion for securing the samplers to the sampling heads.
