Soil Stress & Compaction

   
Field Inspection Vane Borer
Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester

Product Features
 
  • Standard set for measurement up to 160 kPa (16 t/m2) and to a depth of 10 m.
  • A heavier tool for measuring the shear strength in the field.
  • Without pre-drilling a hole the vane can be pushed or hammered into the soil. If the soil is too hard, then it is recommended to pre-drill a hole.
  • Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester measurements can be executed up to a depth of 10 meter and a shear strength can be measured to a maximum of up to 160 kPa (16 t/m2).
  • Because of its unique 180° slip coupling this type of vane tester can be used to measure the friction and the shear strength of the rods direct and separately.
  • The standard set contains the measuring body, two vanes (60x120 mm and 75.8x151.5 mm), various extension rods, spanners, accessories and a carrying case.
  • Optionally available is an extractor.






Pocket Vane Tester
Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester

Product Features
 
  • Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester for measurement up to 250 kPa (2,5 kg/cm2).
  • A shear strength measuring tool that is used in profile pits or on the surface.
  • The small, practical format makes the tool very suitable for testing on soil samples.
  • The short period of time the test takes allows for several measurements in the same soil or layer which in turn allows for the calculation of an average value.
  • The shear strength can be read from a scale fitted with dragging pointer.
  • Conditions for correct measurement are: a flat surface, care placing of the vanes in the soil and turning the meter with a constant (relaxed) speed.
  • Supplied inclusive of note pad, carrying bag and 3 vanes with a measuring range of respectively 0 - 0.2 / 0 - 1 and 0 - 2.5 kg/cm2.






Field Inspection Vane Tester
Eijkelkamp 14.05 Field Inspection Vane Tester

Product Features
 
  • Standard set for measurement up to 200 kPa (20 t/m2) and to a depth of 3 m.
  • Eijkelkamp 14.05 Field Inspection Vane Tester used to determine the maximum shearing force that can be exercised on a soil.
  • Measurement in the field (on the surface, in profile pits or at the bottom of bore holes) as well as in the laboratory (on samples) are possible.
  • The shear stress measured can be read on a clearly readable scale ring. In soft soils it is not necessary to make a borehole first
  •  In order to determine the friction on the extension rods a dummy vane is available in these situations.
  • The standard set contains a field inspection vane tester, complete with three vanes (16 x 32, 20 x 40 and 25.4 x 50.8 mm) and a dummy vane, various extension rods, spanners and a solid carrying bag.
