Unconsolidated Core Mounting System

Unconsolidated Core Mounting System

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: UCMS

The unconsolidated core mounting system amalgamates friable or unconsolidated materials into a heat- shrink Teflon tubing with dual end screens. First, the sample is compacted into the tubing by means of a hydraulically operated piston compactor. Next, a small controlled axial force is applied to enhance sediment cohesion. Lastly, a heat gun shrinks the Teflon tubing, finalizing the compaction.

FEATURES:

Core diameter: 1″, 1.5″ (other upon request)
Core length: up to 2″
Screen: 316 Stainless steel
Heat shrinkable tubing: Teflon
