Soil Sampling Ring Kit - Model C60

Soil Sampling Ring Kit - Model C60

SKU: 0760SC

Sampling ring kit model C60 is a standard set to a depth of 2 metres. The kit is used for soil sample rings with a diameter of 60 millimetres. Soil sampling 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
  • Soil sample rings Ø 60 millimetres
  • For use with the compression test (08.67) & shear/compression test apparatus (08.68)
  • Sample ring protected by ring holder 



With this sample set, samples can be taken in virtually all types of soil to a depth of 2 metres with a diameter of 60 millimetres. The samples can be taken from the surface, from the bottom of auger holes or from soil profile pits, both above and below the groundwater level. This kit allows sampling at the surface and at depth.  

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. There are other ring sizes available and the Valve system is easy to clean. 


  • Water permeability 
  • Air permeability 
  • Weight by volume 
  • Density 
  • The soil-water-air relationship at field capacity 
  • The pore distribution 
  • The oxygen diffusion 
  • Determination of moisture content as various moisture tension levels, from which a pF-curve can be made
