Tube sampling of Pitsea cell MSW

submitted by: watson_gvr

This video shows a 320 mm diameter, 0.5 m long, steel tube being pushed into highly compressed MSW (waste) inside the 2 m diameter Pitsea compression cell in real time. The tube is being pushed by the upper platen of the cell. This formed part of an experiment to investigate the possibility of recovering undisturbed tube samples from MSW.
