SIPRE Coring Auger
Rentals, Sales and Service.

The SIPRE coring auger kit was developed in the 1950's at the US Snow, Ice and Permafrost Research Establishment. It is a tool for taking cores in ice and frozen soils. It takes a 3" core and can be used to core several meters by hand and further if used with a vehicle mounted drill rig. It is generally driven with a motorized power head and raised and lowered by hand. It penetrates frozen soils easily as long as there are no rocks or coarse sand present. The kit consists of a 3' long stainless steel coring barrel with a quick release drive head and a cutting head with replaceable carbide tipped cutting bits. There are extensions included for drilling four meters and associated spares and tools. A gasoline powered drive motor is included to turn the drill. Adapters can be made to use any other power units. It comes in a travel / carrying case. Please call for current rental rates and availability. A limited number of units are produced each year for sale and spares can be custom made to order for older or different models.
