The penetration of a product is the depth, in tenths of millimeter, that a standard needle or cone penetrates the sample, under standardized conditions of loading, time and temperature.

The load comprises a needle, a needle holder and possibly and additional weight.

  • Fully automatic
  • Microprocessor control
  • Optoelectronic penetration detection
  • Magnifying lens and low voltage illuminator
  • Centering guide
  • Step by step motorized vertical displacements
  • This compact instrument uses the latest microprocessor technology and programmation tools: motorized mobile head, digital keyboard, 51 family microprocessor, LCD alpha-numeric display , to provide the testing laboratory with a highly accurate and sensitive test system.

    A digital keyboard, LCD display, interactive software allows the penetration time as well as the soak time to be set and programmed between 0 and 999 mn and fully automatic test routine enable the user to produce consistent and accurate results repeatedly.

    The approach and retraction of the standard needle is controlled through the motorised drive system. A choice of speeds is available through the keyboard and penetration times may be selected with programmed delays also available.

    The head can be vertically moved at 4 different speeds with a precision between 1/10 mm and 1/100 mm. 4 mobile head positions can be memorized in order to shorten approaches and levelling attemps. Limit parameters can also be entered. If test falls out these preset limits both a visible and audible signals are activated.

    During the test, depth penetration is permanently displayed both in units and tenth of units (0.01mm)

    An optoelectronic detection of depth penetration with an automated approach and a levelling system for conductive samples are available.

    Programmed timings may be saved to memory for repeated use.

    A magnifying lens and low voltage illuminator are each mounted on separate flexible arms for optimum positioning.

    Penetration depth is displayed in increments of 0.01mm.

    The unit is compact with an anodised aluminium baseplate, levelling screws, spirit level, centring guide, magnifying lens, low voltage illuminator mounted on a flexible arms and optoelectric detection of depth penetration.

    REF. 941731
    Manual Penetrometer includes a large table on levelling feet with spirit level, a manual release mechanism and a dial indicator in 0.1 mm. Outfit (needle, holder, sample container, ...) not included.

    REF. 941734
    Automatic Penetrometer, compact automated instrument uses the latest electronic technologies. It is equipped with keyboard, LCD display, user friendly software and stepper motor for penetration depth as low as 0.01 mm, needle (or cone) holder, magnifying lens and low voltage illuminator, centering guide, RS232C output and accessories for automatic level detection for conductive samples.

    REF. 9417582
    This compact twin-unit automated grease worker uses electronic counter to control the strokes number.
