Sample Prep for Triaxial Soil Testing
Soil Sample Trimmer
Sample trimmer for cutting samples to precise diameters.
Top Platens for Soil Trimmer
Individual, sized, top platens for the soil sample trimmer
Wire Saw for Soil Samples
Sample trimming saw with replaceable wire blade.
Sample Trimmer with Knife
Used to trim sample ends or cut sample to a specific length.
Compaction Mold, Two-Part
Two-part Aluminum molds with easy-close band clamp closure.
2-Part Split Miter Box
For use with undisturbed samples and for sample trimming of cohesive soils.
Two-Part Vacuum Split Former
For use with non-cohesive soils and disturbed samples. Made from non-ferrous metal.

Three-part aluminum molds with easy-close band clamp closure. Molds include base plate and pedestal.
Made from non-porous latex rubber. Length varies according to sample diameter.
Simple and effective method of sheathing (encasing) sample with latex membrane.
Membrane Testers for Triaxial Testing
Tester is easy to use for quick visual detection of possible flaws in membranes.
For sealing membranes from confining fluid and sample.
O-Ring Placing Tool
Positions rings to seal membrane with minimum disturbance to specimen.
Used to prevent soil from penetrating into porous stones or into panel.
For permeability and triaxial testing to allow even distribution of water through sample.
Acrylic disk used in UU triaxial tests.
High Vacuum Grease
Effective means of sealing latex membranes to sides of the top cap.
Triaxial Sample Filter Paper Strips
Wrapped around sample to accelerate saturation in triaxial testing.
Designed to quickly and accurately measure the height of soil samples.
Precision Diameter Tape, Triaxial
For measuring the diameter of concrete, soil and asphalt cores and cylinders.
