Fully Automatic Electronic Bitumen Penetrometer

    Fully Automatic Electronic Bitumen Penetrometer


    UTB-0130 Fully Automatic Electronic Bitumen Penetrometer with automatic surface detection is used for determination of the needle penetration according to EN 1426, ASTM D5 and AASHTO T49 standards. The penetration depth of the needle is determined with a pulse type electronic measuring system, which is separated from the plunger during the test, this allows the free guidance of the plunger which virtually eliminates friction during the test. UTB-0130 incorporates automatic surface detection which reduces operator based errors and enables performing penetration tests in a quicker way.


    EN 1426; ASTM D5; AASHTO T49

    Before the start of each test, the measuring system automatically resets, and then the penetration needle moves down to the sample using the electric drive. The plunger is then automatically released onto the sample and raised automatically after the testing period. The test result is displayed on the digital TFT touchscreen.

    A magnifying glass and an ultra- bright LED lamp are supplied to assist the operator in addition to automatic surface detection technology. The plunger can easily be removed for weight calibration.

    In addition to automatic surface detection, UTB-0130 has a PT 100 temperature sensor to measure the temperature in the transfer dish.

    The Automatic Electronic Penetrometer is supplied complete with;

    • Penetration Needle, 1 piece.
    • Needle holder, 1 piece.
    • Weights of 50g and 100g
    • Transfer Dish
    • Sample Cup, Ø 55x35 mm, 6 pieces, stainless steel
