Used to determine the grade of bitumen, the Standard Penetrometer measures the depth in units 1/10 millimeters to Which a standard needle of normal weight will penetrate vertically in duration of five seconds at temperature 25 oC. The Standard Penetrometer depicts high accuracy in determining the purpose of grading. We are among the reliable Manufacturers, Suppliers and Exporters of Standard Penetrometer.
- Specifications : It consists of a vertical pillar mounted on a base provided with leveling 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 bitumen penetration needle, ring weight one each 50 grams and two sample container.
- Automatic Standard Penetrometer : Same as above but supplied with transistorized timer and Electro magnet incorporated in the clutch mechanism to accurately control penetration time to exact five seconds
- Penetration cone for empirical estimation of penetration of lubricating grease, petroleum jelly, etc.
- Penetration cone for empirical estimation of penetration of soil
