The TS-0080 Field Inspection Testing Kit is ideal for geo-technicians, geologists and agronomists. It consists of the UTS-0084 Pocket Penetrometer and the TS-0082 Field Inspection Pocket Vane Tester. The instrument is contained in a practical carrying case.
The TS-0082 Field Inspection Pocket Vane Tester is especially designed to measure the undrained shear strength (CU) of cohesive soils. Consisting of a cylindrical body with a torsional spring, three interchangeable vanes of different sizes are used depending upon the expected strength of the soil. The height/diameter ratio of all vanes is 2. During operation the vane is driven 5-6 cm into the soil and then turned with the handle. Deep measures (i.e. on the top of undisturbed samples) can be obtained using the extension rod.
All stainless steel construction. Supplied in a plastic case. Extension rod should be ordered separately.
The TS-0084 Heavy Duty Pocket Penetrometer is designed for making field classification of cohesive soils in terms of consistency, shear strength and approximate unconfined compressive strength. Heavy duty model is all stainless steel construction, three interchangeable tips: 4.5 mm dia. for very hard soil, 6.35 mm for medium and soft soil, 8.98 mm for soft soil. Supplied complete with plastic case.
