Pocket Geotester

Model: HM-502
Price: $310.00

The Pocket Geotester dial penetrometer set is ideal for on-site measurement of soil strength. It gives estimated unconfined compressive strength directly in tsf or kg/cm² when used with the standard 1/4in dia. plunger. In addition, readings with four other plungers of 10, 15, 20 and 25mm dia. give strengths over a wide range of cohesive soil types.

The plunger is pressed into the soil to the calibration notch. The maximum value is retained on the dial until released by a push button. Inner dial scale is 0—6.0 x 0.1 divisions in tsf or kg/cm². Outer scale gives total force over 0—11kg range x 0.1kg divisions, and this reading is used with charts provided to estimate bearing capacities depending on plunger used and soil type.

Geotester has large 2.5in (63mm) dial and sturdy noncorrosive construction. Dial is user-calibrated using register plates provided and any reliable scale of 10—15lb capacity. Penetrometer is complete with stainless steel Plungers in carrying case with instructions, Data Tables, and Register Plates.
