The Hydraulic Sample Extruder ejects undisturbed
soil samples from full size thin-walled samplers
(Shelby Tubes) in one stroke. The bench-top extruder
is set up for 3in (76mm) diameter tubes of
30in or 36in (762mm or 914mm) length, but can
also process 2in (51mm) diameter tubes with the
optional HMA-282 adapter. The smooth, easily
controlled piston stroke permits easy handling
and rapid processing of samples.
Up to 5,600lbf (24.9kN) of force can be used to
eject even stubborn samples. The hydraulic system
precisely controls the horizontally mounted
piston. The HM-524 Extruder comes with a sample
receiving trough (not shown) to insure minimal
disturbance when ejecting and logging sample.
The 1.7gpm (6.4lpm) hydraulic pump is powered
by a 1hp electric motor. Hydraulic oil reservoir has
2.5gal (47L) capacity. Equipment Dimensions:
84x23x18in (2,134x584x457mm), WxDxH. Est.
