Development of an improved storage device for clay samples (BGR liner)

The BGR liner stores core samples in gastight condition under external pressure so that specimen for geomechanic laboratory tests can be transported and stored with the least possible decay of the sample at a moderate cost of storage with easy handling. The BGR liner has been constructed as a cost effective replacement of ANDRA's T-cell.

A number of prototypes has been produced and they are currently in use.
They were first put into use for the sampling during the drilling campaign for T43 that preceded the dismantling process.

BGR is willing to market the design in case of interest by others.
