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.
The hammering head is an attachment used to hammer soil sample rings into harder soils with a hammer.
Using the soil sampler, soil sample rings can be pressed into soft or medium hard soils without a hammer.
Extensive cylinder set for taking soil samples in soft and hard soils up to a depth of 2 meters.
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 hand drill set includes a large selection of different drills and is therefore suitable for sampling in highly heterogeneous terrain.
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 simple auger is used for the removal of soil samples and the investigation of the soil horizon sequence and is available in two different versions.
Universal gauge augers particularly suitable for very hard and stony soils.
The bi-partite gouge augers can be extended by coupling an extension rod.
The Göttinger gouge augers have been developed for taking soil samples up to 90 cm depth, and are primarily designed for soil sample removal with N-min tests.
The set consists of three bi-partite gouge augers with different diameters.
The tough lifter makes it easier to lift hand operated drilling equipment with a cross borehole in the head.
The root sampler has been specially designed for forest soils.
The soil column cylinder has been developed to take undisturbed soil samples.
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.
The Beeker sampler is designed for taking undisturbed samples from submerged soils.
