POCKET PENETROMETERS AND SHEAR VANE DEVICES

Category:

STANDARDS: ASTM D 2573-94 | AASHTO T202

MODELS
S065
DIAL POCKET PENETROMETER
For the classification of cohesive soft soils in terms of consistency,
shear strength and approximate unconfined compression strength.
Direct value read in kgf/cm² on the graduated dial.
Range 0 – 6 kgf/cm² (0-588 kPa). Peak hold feature; zero setting by
push button. Plunger Ø 6.35 mm
Weight: 300 g
S066
DIAL POCKET PENETROMETER
Identical to mod. S065 but with dial range 1-14 kg f/cm²
(0-1373 kPa), suitable for medium and hard soil. Plunger Ø 6.35 mm
S068
GEOPOCKET DIAL PENETROMETER
Designed for a quick determination of the foundation soils, from
clay to sandy soils.
It indicates:
– The angle of internal friction (sandy soils)
– The cohesion “c” (clay soils) and the approx.
Unconfined Compressive Strength.
Peak hold feature; zero setting by push button.
Dual scale: 0-6 kgf/cm² (0-588 kPa)
0-11 kgf/cm² (0-1079 kPa)
Complete with 5 plungers Ø 6.4 – 10 – 15 – 20 – 25 mm
Weight: 400 g
S070
STANDARD POCKET PENETROMETER
Designed for the rapid determination of soil consistency, shear
strength and approximate Unconfined Compression Strength. Scale
range 0-4.5 kgf/cm² with direct reading strength values.
Plunger Ø 6.35 mm
Weight: 300 g

S071
POCKET PENETROMETER
Identical to mod. S070, but having a range of 0 – 16 kgf/cm².
Suitable for very compacted soils.
Weight: 800 g.
S075
POCKET SHEAR VANE DEVICE RANGE: 0-1 KG/CM²
Designed for the rapid determination in the field or in the laboratory
of shear strength of cohesive soils. The dial indicates directly the
shearing strength in kg/cm2.
Complete with interchangeable stainless steel vane,
10×20 mm (Ø x height)
Weight: 300 g.
S076
POCKET SHEAR VANE DEVICE RANGE: 0-2 KG/CM²
Identical to mod. S075 but dial range 0-2 kg/cm².
SPARE
S076-01 Stainless steel vane 10×20 mm (Ø by height) for S075
and S076 devices.
A106 MELTING POT, to melt wax and to cover soil samples
keeping them to the original humidity.
See section “A” p. 28

S086
LOAD RING PENETROMETER
Used to determine the bearing strength, compaction degree of
subgrades, and also for determining the static penetration resistance
of soil.
Supplied complete with “T” handle, proving ring 100 kgf (1 kN) with
maximum load pointer and calibration chart, extension rod 500 mm
long graduated every 100 mm, removable cone point 30° with
1 sq. in. top area.
Cadmium plated against corrosion.
Weight: 5 kg approx.

S088
PROCTOR PENETROMETER
STANDARD: ASTM D 1558
Used to determine in field the moisture-penetration resistance
relationship of fine grained soils.
Spring load scale 0-40 kg, subdiv. 1 kg, with direct max. value
reading in kg on the sliding rod.
Complete with 9 interchangeable stainless steel needles diameter:
4.52 – 5.23 – 6.40 – 9.07 – 12.83 – 16.54 – 20.22 – 24.79 – 28.55 mm,
accessories, carrying case.
Chromed finishing.
Weight: 5 kg approx.

S088-10
MOISTURE CONDITION VALUE (MCV)
AND CHALK CRUSHING VALUE (CCV)
STANDARDS: EN 13286-46 | BS 1377:4 (TRL approved)
This apparatus is used to measure the minimum comparative effort
required to produce near full compaction of a soil, and the rate at
which a sample of chalk lumps are crushed.
The unit can be used to classify chalk as a fill material with saturated
moisture content.
The apparatus comprises a robust frame where a rammer falls,
mould, scale, counter, accessories.
Weight: 60 kg approx.

LABORATORY SAMPLE MIXERS
Suitable to mix granular materials like soils and bituminous mixtures,
by using a whisk beater, as prescribed by EN, BS Spec.
MODELS
E095+B028-03 MIXER, 5 LITRE CAPACITY, complete with whisk
beater
B027+B027-03 MIXER, 20 LITRE CAPACITY, complete with whisk
beater
