Resistance soil compaction
The electronic penetrometer measures soil compaction and is hand operated by pushing a stainless steel rod into the soil and electronically recording the resistance to the rod. At the end of the rod is a stainless steel conical tip that is precisely designed to calculate and record the resistance.
The level of compaction is recorded in PSI or kPa units. This instrument is quick to use, robust and accurately measures soil compaction at different depths in the earth. By taking readings around a site or location the areas of soil compaction can be quickly located and recorded.
