Windsor pin penetrometer
Windsor pin penetrometer. Penetration resistance.
This portable instrument is suitable to evaluate the concrete strength and mortar joints of existing structures up to 37 Mpa.
The unit can test also polymer concrete and patching compound.
The test is performed by penetrating a steel pin into the concrete.
The pin can be reused.
Safe to use: no explosive charge is required.
Ideal for quality control on precast elements, pipes, brick slabs etc.
The test is based on the depth penetration principle which is inversely proportional to the compression strength.
The spring system of the unit penetrates the steel pin into the concrete, and the micrometer (supplied with) measures the reached depth penetration.
This value is compared with previously prepared chart, or with provided charts for typical concrete and mortar.
The penetrometer is supplied complete with accessories, portable carrying case.
