Penetrometer for Top Layers

Back to the Penetrologger Family

The hand penetrometer for top layers is a device that is used to determine the penetration resistance of top layers.
Small cones are ideal for shallow measurements and horizontal measurements in, for example, profile pits.

  • Small cones allow for shallow measurements
  • Good measurements at 15x cone diameter
  • Clear readout
  • Durable construction
  • Factory calibrated exchangeable springs.

Penetrometer for Top Layers - Applications
The hand penetrometer for top layers is specifically used for:

  • Determining the density in top layers, i.e. whether a sports field is playable
  • Horizontal measurements
