Highly useful for sampling soils. The sample collects into rings inside the sampler. These rings along with the specimen can be directly placed in a consolidometer cell assembly, thereby reducting the number of operations to extract the sample from a sampler, trimming to size and transferring into the ring etc. The possible disturbance in these operations is eliminated.
