Van der Horst core sampler set


The Van der Horst core sampler set is used for manually sampling soil cores up to a depth 22.9 feet (7 meters). This set is suitable for many applications, for example above and below groundwater table.

  • Undisturbed sample
  • Larger volume of sample
  • Even less cohesive materials can be sampled


By hammering the sampler into the material (by hammer with nylon heads or slide hammer) the core is filled. When the sample enters the tube, the water or air trapped above the sample can escape through a non-return valve. The sample can be retrieved by using the support and lever beam with rope catcher. This set includes a hydraulic sample extruder, for effortlessly extraction of the sample.

Samples can be taken from bore holes, casing tubes (minimum diameter 2.9 inch (75 millimeters)) or in the beds of canals, lakes, etc. This sampler set is suitable for hammering. 


  • Sampling above and below groundwater table
