Pocket Soil Penetrometer: PP-200
Soil Penetrometer S068
The "Geotester" Pocket Penetrometer is designed for users that require a wider range of both cohesive and non-cohesive soils, from hard clay through to loose sandy loam and is ideal for on-site measurement of soil strength.
It is most commonly used in land care, farming and also the construction industry. The Geotester comes with 5 different size plunger tips to provide the ability to test a broader range of soil types. To obtain a reading push the Penetrometer gently into the soil to the indication groove line. The results are worked out by a data table (included), based on the result value and the tip size/type.
The results will either be the angle of internal friction "Phi" for sandy soils and the larger plungers, the cohesion "C" or unconfined compressive strength of clay soils for the smaller plungers.
The piston is pressed into the soil up to the calibration notch. The maximum force is retained on the dial until released by a push button. Best practice is to take the average over 10 results.
All external parts are made from stainless steel; the spring is nickel-plated steel and the internal mechanics are brass.
