Soil Sampling

Probedrill provides a range of soil sampling options, depending on the type of soil and the testing requirements.

The range of sampling options are:

  • Probedrill Soil Sampler (where half metre samples are taken using a 25mm P.V.C splits)
  • Mostap Soil Sampler (where 1.5m samples are taken using a geotech-style fabric sock and bands)
  • Suction (Piston-type) Sampler (where half metre samples, with 60 mm dia, are taken using a suction method). This sampler provides for a “undisturbed sample”
  • Sediment Sampler (which is ideal for very soft, saturated samples and environmental sampling such as riverbeds)
  • Dual Tube (percussive) Soil Sampler available for taking samples in formations ranging from saturated sands to plastic clays (50mm dia x 1m).
