Plastic Core Trays

Invest In Quality

Stratco manufacture the plastic Orebox Core Tray from injection moulded polypropylene to ensure it is corrosion proof and cannot cross contaminate the stored ore, even those ores that are highly acidic or highly alkaline, or in high levels of humidity. The Orebox Core Tray is manufactured from white plastic so it is visible underground and at night. Virgin plastics are used for the highest possible level of UV protection.

Versatile

The Orebox is available in B, N, H and P sizes, all of which come in standard dimensions of 1000mm x 385mm for efficient packing in standard shipping containers. The full height flute dividers accommodate all core sizes.

The Orebox Core Tray is designed to be stored in stacks on pallets or similar hard stand areas. Each tray is equipped with interlocking lugs at each corner that mate with the tray above, ensuring stable stacking. The stacks of trays are readily strapped for transport.

Core Tray Lids

Stratco Core Tray lids are designed to fit snuggly. This prevents the core samples from being contaminated and keeps them safe and dry. Stratco Core Tray lids are made from long lasting zinc/al, with return folded edges for increased strength and to reduce cut injuries.

Core Tray Markers

Core Tray Markers are available for NQ, HQ and PQ Orebox sizes. They fit snugly into the tray and do not reduce the space available for core storage. The flat top provides a broad area for writing.

Unassembled Core Trays

Stratco is able to supply our steel Core Trays either fully assembled or in broken down form for assembly on-site. Shipping unassembled trays delivers significant freight cost savings with the ability to fit almost double the number of units into a container. It also means that the local community can participate gainfully in your exploration project by assembling the core trays on-site. This can be particularly important in gaining community support for projects in developing economies.

Stratco's unassembled Core Trays have all the features of the assembled units and we supply everything required, including tray bodies, stop-ends, rivets, optional stacking lugs, assembly instructions and rivet guns if requested. All necessary rivet holes in our tray bodies are predrilled to simplify the assembly.

Unassembled Core Trays are packed in cartons to ensure they arrive on-site undamaged and ready for immediate assembly and use. The following table outlines the packing quantities.
