Akkerman core sampler set


The Akkerman core sampler set is used for taking large undisturbed soil samples in sample tubes with a diameter of 2.7 x 2.6 inch (70 x 67 millimeters) and a length of 17.3 inch (44 centimeters.) Using this sampler, samples are taken in stainless steel sampling tubes in auger holes or casing tubes (above as well as under the groundwater level) up to a maximum depth of 164 feet (50 meters.)

  • Durable stainless steel coring tubes
  • Strong hydraulic extruder
  • Ball valve system for best sample retrieval
  • Large high impact hammer
  • Liners available for tubes with core catchers


Using the Akkerman core sampler, samples are taken in stainless steel sampling tubes in auger holes or casing tubes. Suitable for use both above and below groundwater level, with casing tubes diameter 3.9 inch (100 millimeter), up to a maximum depth of 164 feet (50 meters.)

The Akkerman core sampler is used in combination with a tripod and hand winch. The sampling tube is beaten into the soil using a falling hammer. After sampling, the sampling tube can be sealed off with the PE covers. A sample on the split sample tube can be prepared for transport by covering it with another split tube and sealing the seams and closing both ends with covers.

The hydraulic extruder can only be used to remove the sample from the ordinary sampling tubes. The tubes with core catcher can’t be emptied using this extruder. The sample must be removed by tapping or by pulling the plastic liner in which the sample is bedded if the liner had been placed in the core catcher before sampling.
