What is Shelby tube?
A Shelby tube is a stainless steel pipe used to collect and protect soil samples in an undisturbed state for later analysis. It is open on one end and has a cap or tube drive head fitted to the other. The tube is pushed into the soil and then extracted with a sample of the soil intact inside. This tube may then be transported as-is with a threaded sealing cap on the open end or have the sample pushed out and sealed in a purpose-made tube for later examination. The purpose of taking soil samples in this way is to preserve the delicate strata or layers and any other defining characteristics of the soil sample intact.
