VSI Soil Ring Samplers. The VSI soil ring samplers / core cutter can be used to sample undisturbed soil samples into soil sample rings, e.g. for soil density determination, and is commonly used in soil profile pits / walls. The samplers are offered with or without separate crown / cutting shoes for soil rings of various diameters. Please contact us for customisation options.
We offer two types of VSI Soil Ring Sampler Sets, consisting either
|Soil Ring Sampler Set, direct (Type 1)||Soil Ring Sampler Set, cutting shoe (Type 2)|

The soil ring corers are available for various (inner and outer) standard soil ring diameters and heights as available, please inquire the availability of custom diameters.
The driving heads / hammering heads are made of steel to ensure rigidity without the added weight of stainless steel. The driving head differ between types; driving heads for direct ring sampling provide a sample holder for the ring (Type 1), driving heads for cutting shoes enclose the soil sample ring ("sleeve") during sampling and allow to mount a cutting shoe / crown on the bottom (see images below for clarification). Sets include a soft head hammer, a field case for transport, and 5 soil sample rings with lids.
The sample rings are made of stainless steel to minimise effects on the sample; other materials are available upon request. Highly closing Polyethylene lids (top and bottom) are available for all standard diameter rings, allowing for save sample storage during transport; inquire the availability of lids for custom soil ring diameters. Soil core sample rings are available at various quantities with or without curing edge and/or lids; soil sample rings are sold in sets of 10 rings each.
