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 30Ã‚Â° cone angle
2. 2 KN (200 kg f) load ring
3. Road length 45 cm.
