Plastic Core Tray Features and Benefits:

Steel Core Tray Features and Benefits:

  • Non-corrosive
    Plastic core trays will not corrode or fall apart, permitting safe, long-term storage of valuable core samples. All Terracor plastic trays are UV protected and reinforced with ribs.

  • Non-magnetic
    Get accurate results when testing for magnetic susceptibility.

  • Chemically inert
    Negligible risk of sample contamination.

  • UV-steadied
    Extended lifespan when storing outside.

  • No sharp edges
    For ease-of-use and a reduction in handling injuries, equating to less down time.

  • Strong contrast
    The trays are black, which offers a reduction in glare and better contrast when photographing core.
  • Stable stacking
    Efficient interlocking allows for safe, stable stacking.

  • Corrosion resistant
    Trays constructed from high-grade Zincalume steel, which offers proven long-term corrosion resistance across multiple atmospheric environments and a lifetime of up to four times that of ordinary galvanised steel.

  • Secure transportation
    Deep profile ensures core samples are held securely during transportation.

  • Optimal drainage
    Optimally placed drainage ports ensure rapid drainage of residual water.

  • Safe handling
    No sharp edges, reducing on-site and handling-related injuries, and widened handle system for increased stability when lifting. In addition, all 1,5m trays supplied with dual handle system as standard.

  • On-site assembly option
    To reduce transportation costs, all trays are available in prefabricated (on-site assembly) and welded form.

  • Easy to identify
    Permanently identify and record contents of tray using the convenient label.

  • Anti-contamination measures
    Raised side walls help to prevent sample contamination during handling and transportation.

  • Mutiple handle options
    Recyclable, retractable plastic handles — compatible with all storage bays — are available as standard on entire range, but can also opt for reusable steel handles at no extra cost.
