Digital, Static Cone Penetrometer (HS-4210)
The HS-4210 Digital, Static Cone Penetrometer (DSCP), with its large, digital readout, makes testing and recording readings easy. The DSCP can be used to evaluate soil consistency by determining the soil's level of compaction and/or the bearing capacity. The DSCP is especially useful in evaluating shallow foundations and pavement subgrades where fine-grained and soft soils are being used. The DSCP can also be used to aid technicians in quickly selecting sites for testing, as well as correlating with other tests, based on local conditions, such as standard or modified Proctor, CBR or Bearing Capacity. The DSCP uses a dual-rod design, which eliminates the need to correct for soil friction on the rod as the cone is pushed through the material. Penetration resistance is read directly from the cone tip and registered on the digital display. The Unit comes with a 30" starter rod and a 60° cone with a 1.5cm2 area. Shipping wt. 9 lbs. (4kg)
