The sample containing part is a half cylinder. At the correct sampling depth the complete sampler is given half a turn clockwise (180°). During the turning the fin remains in position which allows the half cylinder to be filled and closed again.

  • Samples both saturated and unsaturated material
  • Stainless Steel construction for use in all soil types
  • Simple gouge with flap principle
  • No loss of sediment
  • Takes point samples at any depth
