Unconsolidated core mounting system


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.
