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.
O-Ring Placing Tool
Positions rings to seal membrane with minimum disturbance to specimen.
For sealing membranes from confining fluid and sample.
Acrylic disk used in UU triaxial tests.
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.
