The cone penetrometer apparatus is used to determine the moisture content at which clay soils pass from a plastic to a liquid state and it is used also for the determination of undrained shear strength .
The penetrometer has a cast iron base with leveling screws, digital penetration measurement gauge 0.01 mm precision, release button and automatic zeroing. It is provided with lead screw gear arrangement, Leveling screws, Spirit level. The head can be clamped at any desired height. A rack and pinion and pointer assemble provides fine adjustment of the cone tip to sample. It incorporates a clutch mechanism which makes reading of penetration and subsequent resetting a simple and accurate operation.
The semi-automatic model is complete with automatic controller, which automatically releases the plunger by a magnetic device, complete with micrometer vertical adjustment and adjustable electronic timer of the fall time. The electronic timer allows the user to set up and read the fall time of the needle during testing.
