Penetrometer PM-1

Penetrometer PM-1

Dynamic penetrometer PM-1 enables to operatively determine fine particle soil density factor in compacting grounds in road building etc. It is designated to soils that contain fractions in size of 5 – 10 mm not more than 15 %.

PM-1 has durable stainless construction and it is easy to use. Using penetrometer, the soil compaction factor can be estimated when restrictive force to conical tip pressed trough ground is measured. This is done by counting dynamic impacts and finding corresponding compaction factor from graph.
