Hand Held Corer

Model A:
The sample tube (2) is a 50 cm long acrylic tube, screwed into a POM house (1) with a build in silicone contra flap. The shaft (8) is a 4 metre long tube made from reinforced fibre glass with solid assembly fittings (9), which results in a light weight but strong construction. The sampled sediment core is visible through the transparent acrylic sample tube.
Model B:
The same characteristics as for Model A, but during sampling excess water in the tube is expelled through a completely open end. A stainless steel (AISI 316) mount inserts a rubber bung during withdrawal of the sediment sample.
