Hand Penetrometer Kit 1 Meter

The economical way to determine the bearing capacity of the soil

Penetrometers are used to determine the resistance to penetration (bearing capacity) of a soil. The 0325KL1 Hand Penetrometer Kit can be used for fast and reliable probing to a depth of 3.2-ft. (1-metre). The probing rod with a 60 degree cone is pushed perpendicular into the soil by applying equal pressure on both grips of the Penetrometer. The resistance measured by the cone can be read from the large pressure dial gauge. The set comprises various cones 60 degrees, 1 – 5 cm2, (0.155 – 0.775 inch2) Probing and extension rods.

This easy set can be used for fast and reliable probing to a depth of 1 meter. The set comprises:
• Various cones
• Probing and extension rods
• Measuring instrument with a pressure gauge

• Cone check
• Calibration certificate, instruction manual and carrying case
• Measuring range 10,000 kN/m 2 (=10,000 kPa)
• Accuracy +/– 8% FS

Determining the load-bearing capacity of a soil is extremely important, when you need to know the ease of root penetration for agricultural and cultivation purposes or when designing foundations for civil engineering works (building work, laying runways, the design of roads, etc.). The bearing capacity or penetration resistance of soil is the maximum average contact pressure between the foundation and the soil which will not produce shear failure in the soil.

A comprehensive and complete kit includes a measuring instrument with a dial gauge, a tool set; Cone check to inspect the wear of the cones, a calibration certificate; instruction manual and all is placed in a rugged aluminum carrying case.
