Soil Sampling Ring Kit - Model A53

Soil Sampling Ring Kit - Model A53

SKU: 0753SA

Sample ring kit model A53 is a standard set to a depth of 2 metres in soft soils. This ring kit is used for soil sample rings with a diameter of 53 millimetres. Soil sample ring kits are used for a variety of tests, including bulk density determination of soil.

  • Standard set for a depth of 2 metres
  • Suitable for hammering
  • Undisturbed sampling 
  • Kit allows sampling at surface and at depth 
  • Simple and quick sample ring exchange due to the open ring holder



With this sample set, undisturbed samples can be taken in soft soils to a depth of 2 metres with a diameter of 53 millimetres, provided there are no rocks in its way. Suitable for sampling on the surface, in auger holes or in profile pits, above as well as under groundwater level. There are also two other types of sets available with a different ring size.

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. This set is not suitable for hammering.
