The PANDITO Ultra-light Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) from Sol Solution is a simple to use layer by layer compaction control device. The operator who has just compacted a layer of material immediately tests the compaction quality using the PANDITO. The PANDITO DCP is suited for layers up to a maximum of 50 cm thickness, the typical maximum compaction depth able to be compacted with classical compactors. It measures the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) index. The PANDITO is able to control all types of soils (gravels, crushed, recycled…) up to 50 mm grain size. This self control test can be done by onsite field staff as the PANDITO DCP is extremely simple to use and interpret. This mean that on-site decisions can be made immediately, rather than waiting for the final test using a normalised technique like the nuclear gauge / densitometer to identify and rectify compaction issues. PANDITO Dymanic Cone Penetrometer DCP Graph and Software ResultsData can be captured and presented using the Excel® based software for results entry, calculation and printing / reports. To find out more, Contact Us. Some application examples include establishing: - whether to keep dirt roads and tracks open (in the rainy season, when its wet or with other difficult conditions), to prevent excessive road damage and vehicles getting stuck or bogged - whether to keep un-surfaced runways and taxiways open or not - whether a trench is backfilled and correctly compacted
