Digital Static Cone Penetrometer
Soil Cone Penetrometer
The Digital Static Cone Penetrometer (DSCP) has a large digital readout that makes testing and recording readings easy. The DSCP evaluates soil consistency by determining the soil’s level of compaction and/or the bearing capacity. In addition, it evaluates shallow foundations and pavement subgrades.
The DSCP can also be used to aid technicians in quickly selecting sites for testing, as well as correlating with other tests based on local conditions, such as standard or modified Proctor, CBR, or Bearing Capacity.
The unit uses a dual-rod design, which eliminates the need to correct for soil friction on the rod as the cone is pushed through the material. Furthermore, penetration resistance is read directly from the cone tip and registered on the digital display. The DSCP comes with a 30″ starter rod and a 60° cone with a 1.5 cm² area.
