Soil drilling and sampling provide an insight into the structure of the soil.
The stratification of the soil, which already provides information on internal soil processes such as the movement of substances, can be directly determined optically. On the basis of soil samples it is also possible to derive physical, chemical, and hydraulic soil parameters and properties such as pore volume or hydraulic conductivity in laboratory tests. A large number of different drilling devices and soil sample rings have been developed for adaption to different soils and the specific requirements for the samples. Corresponding accessories facilitate the mostly heavy work of sampling and improve the quality of the samples.
Based on the patented UGT sampling method for large soil monoliths, UGT GmbH has developed this sampling device for soil samples with a sample ring size of 120 mm diameter and 120 mm height.
With this sampling device, undisturbed samples with Ø = 30 mm can be excavated from 120 mm sample rings for higher resolution soil examinations in the lab.
For various applications UGT offers various types of sampling rings. Depending on the application, the sampling rings are made of different materials (stainless steel or acrylic) and are available in different volumes (21 cm³, 100 cm³, 250 cm³ and 1140 cm³).
This comprehensive set includes a variety of different drills for studies with different questions or highly heterogeneous terrain. The standard set allows manual drilling to a depth of 5 m.
The Moor probe according to ILLNER is designed for the collection of semi-mixed samples in moorlands or soft sediments, peat soils, peat mosses, but also for samples in powdery and granular substances.
