Soil sampling ring kit - model C53


Sample ring kit model C53 has a closed sample ring holder for sampling in medium to hard soils. This is a standard set for a depth of 6.5 feet (2 meters). The kit is used for soil sample rings with a diameter of 2 inch (53 millimeters.) Soil sample ring kits are used for a variety of tests, including bulk density determination of soil.

  • Standard set for a depth of 6.5 feet (2 meters)
  • Sample ring protected by ring holder
  • Soil sample rings Ø 2 inch (53 millimeters)
  • Kit allows sampling at surface and at depth
  • Valve system can be cleaned easily


With this sample set, undisturbed samples can be taken in virtually all soils to a depth of 6.5 feet (2 meters) with a diameter of 2 inch (53 millimeters), provided there are no rocks in its way. Suitable for sampling from the surface, in auger holes or in profile pits, above as well as under groundwater level. There are two other types of ring sizes available.

The physical properties of soils are largely determined in the laboratory. Such studies usually require undisturbed soil samples, preferably with uniform dimensions. To meet these requirements, soil samples are taken in rings of a known volume and diameter.

Royal Eijkelkamp soil sample rings are made of seamless stainless-steel tube, smooth inside and out for as less as possible friction. The bottom of the ring has a cutting edge. The precise made dimensions and thus the volume content of the ring is exact, which makes it highly suitable for laboratory studies. Other ring sizes are also available. This set is suitable for hammering.
