  • 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.
  • 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.
