Adjustable Soil Sample Trimmers are paired with a wire saw to trim soil samples to exact diameters. Trimmers are adjustable with a 1 to 4in range based on the size of the top platen. The sample is centered on the bottom platen, and the top platen assembly is lowered and locked into place. Small cuts are made with a trimming knife or wire saw as the specimen is rotated to present fresh surfaces for trimming. Both the pedestal and top platen contain stainless steel pins to keep a firm grip on the sample while it is trimmed with the wire saw (purchased separately). The trimming guide allows for cuts to precise diameter.
1 - 3in Diameter Adjustable Soil Sample Trimmer covers most common soil sample diameters from 1 to 3in (25 to 76mm) diameter and up to 7.5in (190mm) in length. Interchangeable Top Platens are available separately in varying diameters, and one is required for use.
1 - 4in Diameter Adjustable Soil Sample Trimmer is needed for larger specimens up to 4in (101.6mm) diameter and 9.75in (247.7mm) long. Interchangeable Top Platens are available separately in varying diameters, and one is required for use.
