The AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is a powerful testing tool developed by the Army Corps of Engineers. This kit provides an efficient and cost-effective method for determining the in-situ CBR values of pavement base, subbase, and subgrades. With its versatility and accuracy, this penetrometer is a must-have for state/county/city highway departments and geotech firms.

The AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is designed to measure the shear strength of soil with a CBR ranging from 0.5-100% and a bearing value range from 430 to 10,800 psf. It is capable of testing depths up to 30" and can be extended to 6' with optional drive rods and extensions. This model fully complies with ASTM D6951 specifications, ensuring reliable and consistent results.

Included with the penetrometer is a chart that allows users to compute CBR values easily. Additionally, an Excel spreadsheet template is provided, which automatically charts the test results, adding convenience and saving time for operators. This kit covers a wide CBR range and provides accurate measurements for a variety of soil types.

The AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Kit comes with a stainless steel dual-mass hammer, weighing 17.6/10.1 lb, ensuring optimal performance and durability. The quick-connect upper rod, 30-inch drive rod (27-1/4 inch penetration), and 40-inch vertical scale are all included to facilitate smooth and accurate testing operations. The kit also features upper and lower scale mounts, a reusable hardened point, and a disposable cone adapter with 25 disposable cones for easy extraction from hard or cohesive soil.

Transporting and storing this kit is hassle-free, thanks to the crush-proof Pelican carrying case with transport wheels and wrench set included. This ensures that the penetrometer remains protected and intact during transportation.

For comprehensive information on the application and maintenance of the AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer, an easy-to-follow manual is provided. This manual serves as a valuable resource for users, providing guidance and support for efficient and successful testing operations.

When it comes to accurate and efficient testing of soil conditions, the AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is the ideal choice. With its exceptional features, reliability, and ease of use, this kit is essential for any road construction or geotechnical project. Ensure the success of your projects with the AMS 300 Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer.
