DT22 Soil Sampling System

Video: DT22 Soil Sampling System Overview

The Geoprobe® DT22 Soil Sampling System is a direct push system for collecting continuous core samples of unconsolidated materials from within a sealed casing of Geoprobe® 2.25- inch outside diameter probe rods. Samples are collected and retrieved within a liner that is threaded onto the leading end of a string of Geoprobe® 1.25-inch OD light-weight center rods and are inserted to the bottom of the outer casing.
