The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer allows you to perform continuous dynamic penetrometric tests. The fact that it is exceptionally small means you can use it on sites that are inaccessible to normal machines. A hydraulic extractor is used to extract rods, casing tubes and samplers. The penetrometer is controlled via a pedal-operated distributor. The hydraulic connections on the various components use quick connectors. Its reliability is proven by hundreds of units operational around the world.
The penetrometer is equipped with a 66 pound (30 kg) hammer with a 7.87 inch (200 mm) stroke, operated by a hydraulic motor. It is driven by a motor-pump unit (the motor can be either electric or a gasoline engine).
The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer can be used not only for dynamic tests, but also for soil sampling with limited disturbance, which guarantees improved ability to interpret the penetrometric data.
