Acme Mortar Penetrometer, Bench-Top

Acme Penetrometer measures penetration resistance to determine set times of concrete mixes, mortars, and grouts with a slump greater than zero. It also determines how variables, including temperature, cement, mixture proportions, additions, and admixtures upon the time of setting and hardening time of concrete.

The penetrometer features a cast aluminum base and a set of stainless steel penetration needles in a wooden block. A 200lbf (890N) capacity load cell displays loads on a dial gauge that is graduated in 2lbf divisions. The innovative penetrometer design features a longer gear rack, making it efficient and easy to operate. A set of six needles which includes 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, 1/20, and 1/40in² (645, 323, 161, 65, 32, 16mm²), enabling multiplication to a maximum reading of 8,000lbf. Also included are 100 laboratory test data reporting forms.
