Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Threaded Ends
DIDAC Export offer an optimum quality of Dual Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Threaded Ends. Developed by the Army Corps of Engineers, Dynamic Cone Penetrometers (DCPs) provide a low-cost, efficient test method for quickly determining in-situ CBR values of pavement base, sub base and sub grades. DCPs are primarily used to determine in-place soil shear strength in road construction with CBR values from less than 0.5 to 100% and bearing values ranging from 430 to 10,800 psf. They can readily be used for depths from 30 inches to 6 foot with optional drive rods and extensions. All DCPs comply with ASTM D6951 specifications and come with a chart to compute CBR values, as well as an Excel spreadsheet template, which automatically charts the test results.
DCPs are known for their high quality manufacturing and reliability, and, are available with either threaded connections or a quick-connect design. DCPs feature our exclusive easy-grip hammer that provides a finger grip machined into the back side of the hammer flange, which provides easy, non-slip lifting when performing a test.
