Penetrometer, Proving Ring Type. (Vicksberg Penetrometer)

Simple and light instrument for measuring static penetration resistance. The thrust force is provided directly by the operator who, by pushing on the T handle, forces the cone into the soil. The encountered resistance is measured on the fitted load ring. Testing is only possible in soils with good consistency and for short depths.


1. 1 cones with 30° cone angle

2. 2 KN (200 kg f) load ring

3. Road length 45 cm.
