Sampling Tubes

SAMPLING TUBES
Item code: ESTE-69

For collection undisturbed samples of 38mm dia for triaxial strength and unconfined compressive strength either straight from the field or from a sample of larger diameter. The wall thickness is maintained approximately 17 per cent. Both relieved and unrelieved sampling tubes are available. In the relieved type of tube, the internal diameter is relieved by about 0.5mm (inside clearance 2%) beyond approx. 19mm length from the cutting edge of the tube. This is most suitable for highly cohesive soils. In the unrelieved type, the internal diameter is uniform through out. This type is most suitable for soil of low cohesion. These 38mm dia tubes are available in different lengths.

Static Cone Penetrometer

Static Cone Penetrometer, 30KN (300KGF) Capacity,Hand Operated
Item code: ESTE-70

The drive is by means of a rack and pinion manually through a gearing arrangement. The gear box and pinion are fixed on two handles, sprockets and chain arrangement. The movement of the rack is guided by a bracket ( attached to the rack) and two pillars. The penetration resistance i.e. the pressure is indicated on hydraulic gauges through a hydraulic measuring head. Two pressure gauges of 15cm dia dial and 2 capacities 0-160kg/cm are provided. An automatic cut-off valve, to protect the low capacity gauge from being overloaded is provided. The 2 valve can be adjusted and locked at desirable values between 20 to 60cm . A provision is made to anchor the unit to the ground (with the help of four anchors supplied with the unit) and there is a provision for lateral 2 movement of the unit so that subsequent tests could be performed without shifting the entire anchorage. A 10cm penetration cone with friction jacket is provided along with fifteen mantle tubes (non-uniform having an effective length of 1 m each with sounding rods for finding out the cone (point) resistance or jacket friction.

Split Spoon Sampler

Split Spoon Sampler
Item code: ESTE-72

This is used for standard penetration test for determining penetration resistance (N valve) of soil which can be related to unconfined compressive strength. Penetration resistance (N value) of soil is determined by giving a number of blows with a 65 kgs weight falling through a given distance of 75cm required to penetrate the assembly to a depth of 30 cm when properly seated on the ground. The sampler is made from a steel tube split length wise & held together by a head fitted with a ball check valve & a hardened steel shoe in size cutting edge of 35mm dia. The sampler is 35mm i.d. & 50.8mm in outer dia & 508mm long. One adopter to connect 'A' type drill rods is also supplied. SPARES : Body of split spoon sampler, shoe of split spoon sampler, head of split spoon sampler.

Laboratory Vane Shear

Laboratory Vane Shear(Motorized)
Item code: ESTE-75 

Consists of a torque head adjustable in height by means of a lead screw rotated by a drive wheel to enable the vane to be lowered into the specimen. Rotation of the vane is by means of a hand wheel which operates a worm gear arrangement turning the upper end of a calibration torsion spring, vane dia, rod dia, vane size & vane height are as per IS specifications. The vane shaft is attached through the hollow upper shaft to a resettable pointer, which indicates the angle indicates the angle of torque on a dial graduated in degree the dial reading multiplied by spring factor gives the torque a container for soil sample is also supplied & a sampling tube of 38mm. i.d. & 150mm long can also be used as container . Supplied with set of four springs, one each of approx. 2 kgs/cm sq., 4kgs/cm sq., 6 kgs/cm sq. & 8kgs/cm sq. complete as above in a wooden carrying case.
