X-ray Transparent Core Holders are employed in X-ray scanning and tomographic scanners to monitor core saturation. There are various designs providing double-axis and three-axis compression of core.

The core holder design is a Hussler tube with pressure inlets along the core. The outer shell is a duralumin tube wrapped with carbon fiber and fiberglass. Four metal pins can be additionally used to compensate for the axial pressure.
