AMS Dual Purpose Probes

Dual purpose soil recovery probes have a slot and allow collection of samples directly or in a liner

AMS Dual Purpose Soil Recovery Probes are excellent tools for taking continuous soil samples from the surface to a 24″ depth. AMS Dual Purpose Probes are available in unplated 4130 alloy, chrome plated 4130 alloy or stainless steel. These probes are manufactured with heat-treated hardened tips to ensure AMS’ commitment to quality and durability. The Dual Purpose Soil Recovery Probes have a slot in the side of the probe body. This allows for extraction of the sample either with or without a retaining cylinder.

AMS manufactures a Dual Purpose Soil Recovery Probe in a variety of sizes and materials. The probes also features the unique AMS “Reach-&-Grab” System for easy removal of retaining cylinders containing your soil sample. The “Reach-&-Grab” System allows the retaining cylinder to protrude beyond the probe body accommodating removal without handling or disturbing the sample.

The liners used are 1/8″ smaller than the diameter of the probe. The exclusive AMS “Reach and Grab” system is featured in these probes. A specially threaded top cap allows the liner to protrude from the top of the body for easy removal without disturbing the sample. Liners for these probes are 1 3/4″ longer than the specified length of the sampler.

• Easily take and view soil samples with this probe.
• With added extensions, it is extendable to even greater soil depths.
• Open slot for easy removal of soil sample.
• Thread on cross handle for compact storage.

All soil probes come complete with cross handle & are available with optional Slide Hammer attachments. Achievement of greater soil depths may be obtained by combining the AMS Soil Probe with the AMS extensions.

How to use:
Assemble probe using either the supplied Cross Handle or the optional Slide Hammer. Once the probe is assembled, drive it into the soil. Once sampling depth is achieved, retrieve soil sample by pulling back on the Cross Handle or tapping upward with Slide Hammer. Remove sample from probe and place into sample container.

Decontaminate the soil probe and repeat the above or add extension(s) to recover soil samples from the same hole at greater depths.

Includes: Probe body, top cap, cross handle, liner and two plastic end caps. All probes come with a plastic liner.
