B670 Portable Penetrometer

Asphalt Penetrometers

These asphalt penetrometers can determine consistency of bituminous materials, cement petrolatum, waxes, foods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The universal penetrometer, the semi-automatic penetrometer, and the portable penetrometer utilize different cones and needles.

The universal penetrometer B671, is a heavy duty, precision instrument with an accurately machined base. Fine and coarse adjustment micrometer accurately sets height and readings are made on a 6" (150mm) diameter dust proof indicator dial divided into 400 divisions of 0.1mm depth of penetration with a zero preset. It comes with a plunger weighing 47.5g and includes an additional 50g and 100g weight, ASTM needle for testing asphalt and 2 brass sample cups (55 x 35mm and 70 x 45mm dia x depth).

The semi-automatic penetrometer, B675, is like B671 but includes a preset digital timer set to 5 seconds. Timer starts when plunger is pushed and penetration stops at end of preset time by locking spindel. 115VAC is standard; for 230VAC, order B675-3.

The portable penetrometer, B670, is similar to B671 but of lighter construction. It has same plunger and needle but includes only one additional 50g weight.

All conform to ASTM D5, D217, D1168, D1191, D1321, D1403, D1835, D1855; AASHTO T49,T187, others.
