The Universal Penetrometer, Manual is ruggedly constructed for accurate, sensitive measurements. The aluminum base has a machined, grooved table with leveling screws and rubber inserts to protect tips of needles and cones. Two stainless steel rods act as support guides for a cast aluminum head with coarse/fine adjustments and a calibrated friction-free plunger mechanism. Indicator dial has instant zero reset. Any needle or cone with standard 1/8in (3mm) diameter stem may be mounted to the 47.5g plunger assembly. A standard 2.5g ASTM D 5 Needle and two additional loading Weights (50g and 100g) are included. Order needles or cones for other tests separately as needed.

The Universal Penetrometer tests a wide variety of materials by penetration of weighted needles or cones. Main applications are for bituminous materials, but waxes, greases, foods, and pharmaceuticals are among other products tested. Penetration is read from a 5in (127mm) diameter indicator dial of 400 divisions, each representing 0.1mm of penetration. Meets ASTM and AASHTO standards when fitted with proper needle or cone.
