- (1) Multi-stage sludge sampler
- (1) Multi-stage sludge core tip
- (1) 12" multi-stage SCS base
- (3) 12" multi-stage SCS sections
- (3) 4' extensions
- (1) Plastic liner
- (2) Plastic end caps
- (1) 2" soil core catcher
- (1) Universal slip wrench
- (2) Crescent wrenches
- (1) SST cross handle

The sampler uses a disposable plastic core catcher and a rubber check flap on the specialized top cap to improve recovery of saturated sediment. The venting action of the check flap and cap prevents pressure buildup and allows the sample to enter the liner.
In The News
A North Carolina farmer has developed a mobile soil sampling system with virtually no risk of human error, Southeast Farm Press reported.
Allan Baucom, a grain and cotton farmer with more than 6,000 acres around Monroe, N.C., built the automated soil sampler to keep up with his expanding agricultural operations -- and growing variety of soil types. Named “the Falcon”, the sampler can take up to 12 samples and once, and store 200 before being unloaded.
Two Falcons currently exist: one works Baucom’s farm, while the other operates on farms around the country to ensure the sampler’s efficiency in different environments. The sampler is expected to be made available soon, and will host new features, such as computer-interfaced electronic system for use with a laptop or tablet.Read More
A team of researchers led by scientists from the University of South Carolina Dornsife traveled to the Peruvian jungle to understand how sediment and plant matter travel down the Andes Mountains and into the Amazon River system, according a first-person account from Sarah Feakins, assistant professor of earth sciences at USC Dornsife.
The team focused on a tributary to the Amazon River, the Kosnipata River. They started at the headwaters, traveling up treacherous gravel mountain roads. They ended in the Amazonian floodplain, where Feakins said the river was orange from colloids in the soil.
The team spent most of their time collecting and filtering water to obtain sediment samples. Feakins described the work as collecting by day and filtering by night.Read More
A deep water reef off the coast of a small island in the Dutch Caribbean will be explored at depths yet to be seen by scientists, according to a press release from the Netherlands’ Wageningen University.
The researchers will be mapping biodiversity and collecting samples from reefs off the coast of Bonaire. They plan to travel as deep as 300 meters to observe the biodiverse and mostly unexplored reefs.
A submersible from Bonaire’s Curacao Public Aquarium will take researchers down to do their observations. The sub's sediment core sampler will help the team analyze sediment in the reefs.
Biological samples will be analyzed and their DNA will be coded in a molecular lab in the Netherelands’ Naturalis Biodiversity Center.Read More
