Vertek - Model HT 10 cm² - Digital Electronic Cone
The digital electronic 10 cm2 cone is designed to address the accuracy, sensitivity and durability problems inherent in other cone designs of the same or lower capacity. This cone provides excellent data for softer materials and provides excellent resolution in most materials. This cone has a 10 square centimeter tip. The cone consists of two strain guage transducers, with the cone electronics packaged directly behind the transducers. In all configurations the cone channels are temperature compensated to provide stable readings during testing. The cone tip, sleeve (local friction element) and pore pressure element (filter) are easily and quickly changed when necessary by the operator.
The cone is available with our standard channels (tip, local friction, pore pressure, inclinometer, seismic, and temperature) and can be used in conjunction with our Vision or Resistivity modules. Pore Pressure can be measured in either Ul or U2 position (on the face of the tip or just behind the tip).
