The Initial Set Concrete Pocket Penetrometer (Dial Type) is a compact and precise instrument designed for easy concrete setting time testing. It is fitted with a 2.25-inch (57mm) diameter dial gauge and provides clear and accurate readings. The dual scales range from 0 to 700 psi and 0 to 50 kg/cm², allowing for versatile resistance measurements. The maximum readings are locked in place until released by a convenient push button. Calibration is straightforward, using an ordinary platform balance with the provided register plates. The instrument has a durable plastic case, factory certification, and detailed instructions.

Key Specifications:

  • Dial gauge diameter: 2.25 inches (57mm)
  • Dual scales: 0 to 700 psi and 0 to 50 kg/cm²
  • Penetration plunger: 1/20 in² (32.3mm²)
  • Overall length: 6 inches (152mm)
  • Complies with: ASTM C780

The Initial Set Concrete Pocket Penetrometer (Dial Type) is essential for estimating when concrete mixes are nearing their initial set. Concrete can no longer be effectively consolidated at this stage and is almost ready for final finishing operations. ASTM tests define the initial set of concrete mortar as when 500 psi (3.4 MPa) of force is needed to embed a penetration probe to a depth of 1 inch. This penetrometer model has a 1/20 in² (32.3 mm²) penetration plunger, which is pushed into fresh concrete at a constant rate to the 1-inch mark. An optional 2.7-inch (68.58 mm) diameter Adaptor Foot is available for masonry mortar evaluations.

Additional Features:

  • Adaptability: The Concrete Penetrometer Adapter Foot allows for testing masonry mortar.
  • Versatility: Can be used for various concrete and mortar testing applications.
  • Portability: Lightweight and easy to carry with its compact design and included plastic case.
