Pocket Soil Penetrometer
For use by field personnel to check visual classification of soils.

Verifies whether excavation side walls require shoring, based on OSHA cohesive soils classifications. Indicates consistency, shear strength, and approximate unconfined shear strength. Direct-reading scale—in tons/sq ft, or kg/sq cm—corresponds to equivalent unconfined compressive strength. Range: 0 to 4.5 tons. High quality construction. Includes belt-loop style carrying case and operating instructions. Should not replace laboratory testing or field analysis, or be used to produce foundation design data.

- Hexagonally shaped to stop it rolling away
- Direct reading in tons/ft2 and kg/cm2
- Dimensions: 200 mm & 16mm

Includes belt loop style Carrying Pouch

Adapter foot is recommended when testing extremely low strength cohesive soils. 25mm dia. foot, compared to the 6.35mm penetrometer piston, increases the effective area measured by 16 times. Divide by 16 to obtain correct unconfined compressive strength when the reading in tons per square foot or kilograms per square centimeter is on the low-load side
Adapter Foot not sold separately.
