DYNAMIC CONE PENETRATION TEST APPARATUS (DCPT) FOR PAVEMENT

DYNAMIC CONE PENETRATION TEST APPARATUS (DCPT) FOR PAVEMENT

Model No: TM-2101

Compliance with following International Standards:
ASTM D6951

Applications:
The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) is an instrument designed for the rapid in-situ measurement of the structural properties of existing road pavements constructed with unbound material. 

Features:
  • Well proven, robust design
  • Portable and easy to operate
  • Tests can be carried out in minutes
  • Results correlate well with conventional CBR readings
  • Detects layer boundaries and thicknesses
  • Ideal in locations where access is difficult (such as coal holes)

Equipment detail:
The 8 kg free fall hammer is lifted and dropped through a height of 575mm. The distance of penetration of the cone tip is then recorded and the cycle repeated. Continuous measurements can be made down to a depth of approximately 850mm or when extension shafts are fitted to a maximum recommended depth of 2 meters. Where sub-pavement layers have different strengths, the boundaries can be identified and the thickness determined.
  • Power                                      : Manual (Hand Operated)
  • Cone diameter                        : 20 mm
  • Cone angle                             : 60 degrees
  • Hammer Weight                     : 8 Kg
  • Hammer freefall height          : 575 mm
  • Upper steel shaft                    : 16 mm diameter
  • Lower steel shaft                    : 16 mm diameter
  • Length of lower shaft             : 900 - 1200 mm long
  • Graduation of lower shaft      : Marked in 5 mm increment
  • Case size approximately         : 1100 x 250 x 150mm
  • Weight                                    : 29kg
The equipment comprises of the following parts and accessories:
  • One dropping weight of 8 kg, top with handle. 
  • 1 meter scale mounted on square pipe
  • Penetration rod cone and an anvil.
  • Extension Rod (Optional Extra)
  • One Copy of Operating Instruction manual with General Assembly Drawing
  • Wooden carrying case
  • Bar, wrench and spanner accessories
