AMS Soil augers are designed to rapidly remove soils of all types, using the specially designed bits on the Regular, Mud, and Sand models. The augers are all stainless steel construction with bits heat treated before sharpening. The split core sampler features a heat threaded 400 series coring tip threaded to a 300 series split body and threaded end cap. The sampler may be used with or without a retaining cylinder. All attachment coupling are 5/8 inch NC threaded.
For your convenience, all the items necessary for accessing a sampling point and then taking a sample are included. AMS soil bucket are the most efficient available in terms of effort required and speed. The AMS Split Core Sampler allows immediate core examination or a sample may be collected with a retaining cylinder. The rugged AMS Deluxe transport case is water resistant. All of the sampling equipment, except for the Slide Hammer, may be acid bath cleaned.
APPLICATION: Use of the augers for accessing the sampling point at depths of up to about 12 feet (3.6 m) with the supplied extensions and AMS slide hammer. The sample may be collected within a removable retaining cylinder (liner). Plastic end caps are included.
Assemble the chosen soil auger with an extension and cross handle. Place at the desired angle on the soil surface and turn three revolutions, or until full. Lift carefully from the hole and empty from the bail by tapping the cross handle on the ground. Repeat until the sampling depth is reached. Assemble core sampler to an extension(s) and slide hammer. Place in the hole and mark the extension six inches (5.1 m) above the soil surface. Use the slide hammer to drive in the the sampler to the mark and carefully remove. Disassemble, remove the liner and place the cap on each end.
