Dormer Specialised Soil Samplers

Dormer Split-Tube Sampler

The Dormer Split Core Sampler has been designed for taking undisturbed samples in firm soils. Available in both 50mm and 60mm diameters, the 350mm long stainless steel core sampler can be split into two longitudinal halves with threaded retainers on both ends. It is driven into the soil using a Dormer Slide Hammer where the tapered cutting tip effortlessly cuts through the soil profile. Once the sample is taken, the end retainers are unscrewed using the C-spanners supplied and the tube halves are easily parted exposing the core sample.

  • 50mm and 60mm diameters available
  • Connects to Dormer extensions
  • Stainless Steel design makes decontamination easy

The other version has the piston rod in the centre and the extension rod connection is positioned partly protruding out from the side of the sample tube. The standard version has the sampler length at 1.0m or 1.5m overall and the sample length is approx 130mm shorter (to allow for piston).
