Window Sampling Tube with Screw-On Cutting Shoe

The window sampling tubes are made of high-quality steel and features multiple windows making visual inspection of the samples easy and straightforward. The cutting shoe (made of hardened steel) is detachable by means of a screw connection enabling the appliance of a core catcher.

Window sampling tubes can be inserted into the ground by means of a CPT penetrometer pushing rig, a DPT or SPT sounding rig or by means of hydraulic, gasoline or electric breaker hammer.
Tubes with a sampling length of 1000 mm have 2 windows, the tubes with 2000 mm sampling length have 4 windows.
