This page is currently under construction.  This section proposes a wide range of laboratory equipment and accessories that cannot be located in a specific application, but they are utilized for general purposes and are suitable to perform properly different measuring procedures of liquids and solids, weighing, temperature, containers, still, pH, chemicals, reagents etc.

S051 DYNAMIC CONE PENETROMETER (DCP) TRL = TRANSPORT RESEARCH LABORATORY, UK.

S051 DYNAMIC CONE PENETROMETER (DCP) TRL = TRANSPORT RESEARCH LABORATORY, UK.

STANDARD: ASTM D 6951-03
This portable hand operated equipment is designed to obtain a
direct and rapid in-situ evaluation of the structural strength of road
pavement layers constructed with unbound materials.
The DPC Penetrometer results can be compared with CBR
(California Bearing Ratio) as per sperimental Kleyn 1982 studies.
The test is performed with continuous penetrations at approx.
800 mm depth with max. depth of 2 m by using extension rods.
The equipment housed in carrying case, consists of:
– Drop sliding hammer 8 kg weight, falling height of 575 mm
– Impact anvil with driving rod
– Penetration rod with conical 60° point and Ø 20 mm
– Bar wrench, spanners, accessories.
Dimensions: 1210x340x190 mm
Weight: 29 kg approx

Used to determine the following:

  • Moisture Condition Value
  • Chalk Crushing Value

Designed to be used in Construction Industry Laboratories.

It uses a sliding hammer of a specific set weight and lifted to a set height,
the release mechanism uses high grade toughened material to prevent wear.

The weight incorporated a scale so that the operator can check the depth of the weight after each drop.

A trip counter records the number of blows in each test.

The mould is covered with a non-stick Teflon coating.
