Standard Penetrometer
ASTM D5, BS 2000
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 25°C determines penetration for gradation. It consists of a vertical pillar mounted on a base provided with leveling screws. The head, together with dial plunger rod a cone (or needle) slides on a pillar and can be clamped at any desired height. A rack and 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 subdivisions and the needle pointer against figures makes easy reading. Supplied with a bitumen penetration needle, ring weight one each 50 gms. and 100 gms. two sample containers.

Penetration cone for empirical estimation of penetration of lubricating grease, petroleum jelly etc.
Digital Penetrometer
IS 310, 1203, 1448, IP 60, 49, 50 ASTM D5, 217, D637, BS 2000-49
Same as but the unit is compact with timer to control duration of penetration. The instrument is provided with lead screw gear arrangement, Leveling screws, Spirit level and a digital preset timer.
Semi-Automatic Penetrometer
BS 1377:2; NF P94-052-1; CEN ISO/TS 17892-6, 17892-12
The Semi-Automatic Penetrometer for Liquid Limit consists of a cast iron base with course and fine leveling screws, a digital penetration measurement gauge 0.01 mm resolution/readibility and an automatic penetration timer unit. The is equipped with a digital, 99 second timer, which can be set to the standard 5 second free-fall time or to some other setting for customized tests. When engaged the timer will allow the needle to free fall into the sample for the specific time interval and then lock the needle from advancing while providing a direct reading of the test results. 320 g weight should be added to the 30° angle cone to get a total weight of 400 g for the shear strength test.

Semi-Automatic Penetrometer for Liquid Limit supplied complete with :

  •  Automatic Penetration Timer Unit
  •  30° Penetration Cone
  •  Sample Cups, 3 pcs. Aluminium, Ø55 mm x h:35 mm.
