Hand Penetrometer For Top Layers
 
  • Eijkelkamp 06.06 Hand Penetrometer For Top Layers used to determine the penetration resistance of top layers.
  • Also used for horizontal measurement, e.g. in the walls of profile pits.
  • The principle is based on measuring the highest penetration resistance of a cone over a distance of about 10cm.
  • The penetration resistance is measured by means of a compression spring.
  • A number of cones and compression springs are available.
  • A certain combination of a cone and a compression spring is selected based on the expected penetration resistance.
  • If the expected penetration resistance is high, a cone with a small surface is selected and a compression spring with a large maximum force and visa versa.
