The Geotester gives an estimated unconfined compressive strength of up to 6kg/cm2 x 100grm/cm2 divisions when used with the standard 1/4" dia' plunger. The outer scales when used with the other 4 supplied dia' plungers gives shear strength over the range 0-11kg x 100grm divisions dependent on the plunger size and soil type. Unit supplied with 5 interchangeable plungers in carry case w/data tables. 

Applications include:

  • Checking failure or slide areas
  • Checking degree of solid compaction
  • Evaluating chemical solidification of soils
  • Checking soil strata to determine pile lengths
  • Classifying  soils at boring or construction sites
  • Correlating field and laboratory compaction studies
  • Correlating unconfined compressive strengths of soils
  • Analysing consistency of soils for agricultural purposes
  • Verifying classification of boring samples in the laboratory
  • Provides unconfined compressive strength estimates in tsf or kg/cm²
  • 5 interchangeable inserts with diameters of 6.4mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm and 25mm
  • Tests a wide range of cohesive soils
  • Non-corrosive
  • User-calibrated dial
