Core Splitter

Detailed Description

The Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center’s Samples Repository provides space and services for processing and sampling of materials and collections.

Cores can be split in-house using a custom-made sediment core splitter, which utilizes two Bosch1 oscillating tools with flush cut blade attachments mounted to a sliding carriage that moves over a stationary sediment core. Cores are cradled on a V-channel, and the oscillating tools can be adjusted to fit a variety of core liner diameters. Rock samples can be cut and trimmed using a Dewalt1 D24000 1.5-Horsepower 10-inch wet tile saw.
