AMS - Gas Powered Core Sampling Kit
The AMS Gas Powered Core Sampling Kit with gasoline powered Gas Powered REDI Boss Hammer is ideal for obtaining core samples to a depth of 8ft. (2.4m). The complete set contains: Gas Powered REDI Boss Hammer, (1) 4ft. Deluxe AMS Carrying Case, (1) 3ft. Deluxe AMS Carrying Case, GP Slotted Sampler Tube 4ft., (2) GP Upper Extensions 2ft., (2) GP Lower Extensions 2ft., GP Drive Head Adapter, (2) 12in. Pipe Wrenches, Clean Out Spoon, GP Drive Tip, GP Liner Retainer Coupler, AMS Foot Jack, 2in. Foot Jack Shackles (1 Set of 2), 1-1/2in. Core Catcher, Cleaning rods with brushes & T-handle, (4) plastic end caps, (1) plastic liner 1.5in. x 4ft & (1) plastic liner 1.5in. x 2ft.
The AMS Gas Powered Core Sampling Kit sampler tubes have male/female (modified acme) heat treated threads. The 4ft. sampler tube found in this kit has a 4ft. sample slot milled in the side of it which allows it to be run with or without a plastic tube. If a sample is collected in this sample tube without a plastic liner, the AMS Cleanout Tool may be used to eject to the core sample from the slot. Also included in the kit are (2) lower & (2) upper 2ft. sampler tubes. These sampler tubes give you the option of creating a 2ft. or 4ft. sampler. Upon assembly, you will notice two parallel knurl marks on each of the (4) sampler tubes. When creating a 2ft. sampler, these knurl marks should be at the top of the sampler. When creating a 4ft. sampler tube, the knurl marks on both extensions should meet at the connection point in the middle of the sampler. (Please refer to the expanded photo on the TDS). Properly connecting your tubes with these knurl marks in the correct position will ensure the proper timing of your sample liner, so that there is minimal ‘liner float’ inside the sampler. Whether you are running a 2ft. sampler or a 4ft. sampler, there will be times when you need to lower the sampler in an existing borehole in order to collect a core from a deeper interval. This is when you will use the liner retainer coupler. The liner retainer coupler holds your liner in place inside the ‘lead’ sampler and allows you to add an additional sampler extension tube. After driving your sampler to depth, the AMS Foot Jack is an ergonomic and easy way to remove your sampler. Simply slide the 2in. Foot Jack Shackles over the drive head of the sampler and step on the foot pad of the removal jack. The rings will automatically fall lower on the rod and grab each time you press down on the foot pad. Please note that if the soil is soft at the surface, it is beneficial to have additional stability underneath the footplate of the removal jack to keep it from sinking.
