Bulk Density Kit
Soil Bulk Density Sampler allows the extraction of intact soil cores.
A core 57mm (2.25") in diameter is extracted and held in a brass cylinder.
The water-holding characteristics of the sample can be determined.
The cylinder can be used to provide a sample of known volume, allowing the bulk density to be determined.
The sampler is supplied with two wedge coring tips, driving hammer, core extractor, spanner and strap wrench for replacing coring tips, six cylinder caps, and five brass cylinders; one 60mm long, two 30mm long, and two 10mm long.
The cylinder and soil sample can then be placed in a pressure plate extractor or Tempe Cell apparatus.
