This Koehler K19500 penetrometer is designed for ASTM penetration tests on petroleum products and for consistency tests on a wide range of food products, cosmetics, pastes and other solid to semisolid products. Precision machined and assembled to exacting specifications, and ruggedly constructed to insure long service life in both laboratory and field applications. This instrument features a full penetration range of 0-62.0mm with 1/10mm subdivisions (0-620 penetration scale) and accommodates cones and needles to perform all of the ASTM tests on lubricating greases, asphalts, petroleum waxes and petrolatums. Compact design facilitates transport for field use. Head assembly adjusts for accurate placement of the tip of the needle or cone on the surface of the sample. Sturdy cast iron base provides excellent support and has a built-in spirit level and leveling screws to insure proper alignment of the penetrometer during testing. It is supplied with 50 and 100 gram weights and standard 47.5g plunger assembly. Test cones, needles and lightweight plunger (where applicable) are available to be ordered separately.
