Semi-Automatic Penetrometer for Liquid Limit

Clear

A Cone Penetrometer is used to determine the moisture content at which clay soils pass from a plastic to a liquid state. It is also used for the determination of the undrained shear strength.

The TS-0180 Semi-Automatic Penetrometer for Liquid Limit consists of a cast iron base with course and fine levelling screws, a digital penetration measurement gauge (0.01 mm resolution/readability) and an automatic penetration timer unit.

The TS-0180 is equipped with a digital 99 second timer which can be set to the standard 5 second free-fall time or to some other customised setting. When engaged, the timer will allow the needle to free fall into the sample for the specific time interval before locking the needle from advancing while providing a direct reading of the test results.

Penetration cone/s and sample cups should be ordered seperately.
