Standard Penetrometer

Standard Penetrometer

Make: LabTek

Model: SL-2060

Origin: India

Standards:ASTM D5, BS 2000

Specification: It consists of a vertical pillar mounted on a base provided with leveling screws. The head, together with dial plunger rod a cone (or needle) slides on a pillar and can be clamped at any desired height. A rack and pinion and pointer assemble provides fine adjustment of needle or cone tip to sample. It incorporates a clutch mechanism. Which makes reading of penetration and subsequent resetting a simple and accurate operation. The dial is graduated in 400 1/10 and the millimeter subdivisions and the needle pointer against figures makes easy reading. Supplied with a bitumen penetration needle, ring weight one each 50 gms. and 100 gms. two sample containers.

  • Heat the sample until it becomes fluid.
  • Pour it in a container to a depth such that when cooled, the depth of sample is at least 10mm greater than the expected penetration.
  • Allow it to cool in an atmospheric temperature.
  • Clean the needle and place a weight above the needle.
  • Use the water bath to maintain the temperature of specimen.
  • Mount the needle on bitumen, such that it should just touch the surface of bitumen.
  • Then start the stop watch and allow the penetration needle to penetrate freely at same time for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds stop the penetration.
  • Result will be the grade of bitumen.
  • Take at least three reading.
