STATIC CONE PENETROMETER
- Low soil friction
- Simple to use
- Uses 60° penetration cones with 1.5cm² or 3.0cm² area
- Direct gauge reading
The static Cone penetrometer is use to evaluate the consistency of soils, their level of compaction and the bearing capacity of shallow foundations and pavement subgrades.
Specifically developed for use in fine grained soils, particularly soft soils, to depths of 30 feet. They use a 60°cone with an area of 1.5 cm². An optional cone with a 3 cm² area is
available for use in very soft soils.
Dual rod construction isolates cone resistance from shaft friction
Pressure gauge ranging from 0 to 70 kg/cm² reads cone resistance directly, eliminating need for proving ring conversions. Stainless steel andanodized aluminium construction
for reliable performance.
Standard model include: A 600 cone with a maximum area of 1.5 cm2
A started Rod Assembly designed to withstand an axial force of 250 lbf 340 N.m) maximum, Pressure gauge marked in kg/cm2, Operating Instructions and parts list
