Protecting concrete usually means shielding it from the elements of nature or from harsh manmade chemicals. But it’s not just concrete that needs such protection. Corrugated metal pipe, steel surfaces, material hoppers, rail cars and masonry all can come in contact with corrosive or abrasive materials or harsh conditions.
The geotechnical needs of DOTs and other agencies responsible for roads and bridges are vast. Issues include: Culvert repair Soil stabilization Void filling Concrete slab lifting Sinkhole remediation Slope control Slough control in tunneling
Portable device for dynamic penetrometric tests
The DPM30 penetrometer allows exclusively continuous dynamic penetrometric tests to be performed. For the dynamic tests, the penetrometer is equipped with a 66 pound (30 kg) hammer with a 7.87 inch (200 mm) stroke, operated by a hydraulic motor. It is driven by a motor-pump unit, where the motor can be either electric (220v or 110v) or a petrol engine. A hydraulic extractor is used to extract rods, lining tubes and samplers. The penetrometer is controlled via a pedal-operated distributor. The hydraulic connections on the various components use quick connectors.
