Along with the standard orders, we can custom make equipment with the best use of our resources. Our cost competency & timeliness in order processing has made us a preferred supplier of industrial testing equipment.


Standard Penetrometer Apparatus
As per IP 49, 50 & 167 specifications and also per is 1448 (p: 60) & (p: 93) this apparatus is used for penetration test on a wide variety of materials. It consists of a head support mounted on a vertical rod which can be adjusted for height. A rack and pinion and pointer assembly provides fine adjustment of needle tip to sample and in corporate a slipping clutch mechanism which make reading of penetration and subsequent resetting a sample and accurate operation. The dial graduate from 0-400 in one tenth millimeter sub-division. The instrument is supplied with two sample containers & 2 wts.

Automatic Standard Penetrometer
Used to determine grade of bitumen. The penetration tests determine consistency of bitumen for the purpose of grading. Depth in units 1/10 of millimeter to which a standard needle having a standard weight will penetrate vertically in a duration of five seconds at a temperature of 25ºC determines penetration for gradation.

    It consists of a vertical pillar mounted on a base provided with levelling screws. The head, together with dial plunger rod and cone (or needle) slides on a pillar and can be clamped at any desired height. A rack & pinion and pointer assemble provides fine adjustment of needle or cone tip to sample. It incorporates a clutch mechanism which makes reading of penetration and subsequent resetting a simple and accurate operation. The dial is graduated in 400 1/10 and the millimeter sub-divisions and the needle pointer against figures makes easy reading. Supplied with a bitumen penetration needle, ring weight one each 50 gms, and two sample container.
