useful for sampling soils. The sample collects into rings inside the sampler.
These rings along with the specimen can be directly placed in a consilidometer
cell assembly, thereby reeducating the number of operations to extract the sample
from a sampler, trimming to size and transferring to the ring etc. the possible
disturbance in these operations is eliminated.
The area ration for this sampler is 81 percent and it meets with the specifications
of sub surface Exploration and sampling of soils for Civil Engineering Purposes
by M.J. Hvorslev. Consists of a split tube accommodating ten thing brass rings
60mm x 25.4 mm long. A shoe with hardened cuting edge is screwed at one end. A
driving head with ball check valve is fitted at the other end. The flaps mounted
inside the cutting shop prevent the cohesionless soil falling down while lifting
Spares: Body consisting of split pipe threaded at both
the ends and shoe.
Head Assembly: Set of 10 rings 60mm O.D. and 25.4
