The Ogeechee™ sand corer is the first sampler to effectively sample most bottom sands. The Ogeechee™ sand corer is a low cost core sampler designed for coring in fresh, salt, or brackish waters. The top closing valve is located inside its solid 316 stainless steel head assembly, and is under full control of the operator by means of its own closing line. The closing valve design provides for long life of both the valve and valve seat and for tight sealing against air leakage under sandy conditions. When cleaning and lubricating is desired, the entire valve and valve seat are easily removed, cleaned, and/or replaced.

The Ogeechee™ sand corer was designed to sample in swiftly moving water with the use of an extension handle up to 4.5 meters (15 feet) long. Extension handles allow both twisting and downward pressure to work together to obtain a long core sample in firm or sandy bottoms. In depths greater than 4.5 meters (15 feet), the Ogeechee™ Sand-Pounder corer can be hammered into the sand with the optional drive hammer.

The drive hammer is used to drive only the Ogeechee™ Sand-Pounder corer into the sediments and sand by repeated lifting and dropping of the drive hammer. The drive hammer will severely damage other corers. Caution: clays, heavy soils, or long cores may make sampler removal difficult, requiring a power winch!
