Soil Core Sampler. We offer complete sets of soil coring equipment, manufactured according to long-term experience and field approved. The soil corer is used to collect minimally compressed, large soil cores for soil profile description, soil sampling for physico-chemical analyses, root biomass determination, and other environmental investigations including sampling for morphometric soil horizons, pollutants, microbes and soil fauna. Soil core samples are easily removed from the soil core sampler because of its unique design - the crown has a slightly smaller (~6 mm) internal diameter than the tube - reducing friction when extracting the soil core (entering the pusher from the crown-side of the corer and extracting the core toward the top end of the tube). The crowns are hardened and can be replaced (wit hthree scews) even in the field. Standard soil corer size is 58 mm inside diameter (i.e. soil core diameter; 68 mm OD of soil corer), 70 cm corer tube length - allowing sampling to ~60 cm soil depth. Choose 70 mm inner diameter / soil core diameter (80 mm soil sampling tube OD) for least compression rates.

See the pdf document below for detailed specifications of this tubular soil sampling tool, the different soil corer sets, parts lists (soil sampling tubes, drive heads, cutting shoes, etc.), and a brief preparation and operation manual to soil coring.
Customization option: The crown and corer tube diameter, length etc. can be custom-build to needs e.g. allowing to use the system also for tight minirhizotron tube installation and sampling to different depth. Please inquire for other soil coring tube diameter - custom soil tube and crown dimensions are available to achieve specific soil core dimensions.
