Static Cone Penetrometer


Evaluates soil compaction, soil consistency and bearing capacity of foundations and pavement subgrades. Simply press the Penetrometer into the soil 6in (152mm), take a reading from the gauge, then advance another 6in to take the next reading, and continue to desired depth. Fine-grained, soft soils yield the most accurate results, while gravel and rocks in the soil can cause inaccurate readings.
