Sample Ring Kit - Core Cutter Method, Test 4.4

SKU: 0809

Sample ring kit especially designed to comply to the Dutch RAW standard, mainly used for civil engineering construction.

  • Takes very large undisturbed samples
  • Stainless steel cutting rings
  • Used for density measurements and others



This method is used for the determination of the density and the soil moisture content of embankment- or foundation material.

With a drop weight and a guide cylinder, a special stainless steel sample ring with a diameter of 95.7 x 12 millimetres and a height of 81.5 millimetres, is hammered into the soil surface. The density and soil moisture content of the sampled material can then be determined in the laboratory.



  • Undisturbed sampling
  • Soil sampling above groundwater table
  • Geotechnical soil research
  • Laboratory soil density measurements
  • Determination of moisture content

Set contains

  • Stainless-steel sample rings for non-cohesive materials (3 pieces)
  • Stainless-steel sample rings for cohesive materials (3 pieces)
  • Insertion set with drop weight of 6 kilograms
  • Cutting tools
  • Cleaning brush
