A cross section through a piston-and-cylinder device with a shrink-fitted double cylinder. In this design, the bottom piston (stopper F) is in the fixed position and only the top piston (A) is pushed into the cylinder by a hydraulic press. The main components of the device are: piston (A), inner cylinder (B), outer supporting shell (C), brass and rubber sealing rings (D), sample (E) and stopper (F).
