Humboldt 200mm Pocket Penetrometer

The Pocket Penetrometer is designed as a lightweight instrument for classifyingcohesive soils in terms of consistency, determining the approximate unconfinedcompressive strength and the evaluation of shear strength using the penetrationprinciple. The readings obtained from the penetrometer do not replace laboratorytest results due to the fact that a small area of penetration test could givemisleading results. The instrument should not be used for obtaining foundationdesign data.

  • Hexagonally shaped to stop it rolling away
  • Direct reading in tons/ft2and kg/cm2
  • Dimensions: 200 mm & 16mm
