ASTM D2573; AASHTO T223
The portable inspection vane set provides a rapid check of the stability of foundations, excavations and trenches in clay . Total range is 0 to 260kPa (0 to 2.6 ton/sq. ft.). Scale on handle holds peak value until reset. Accuracy is ±10%.
Three different sizes vane are included (16x32, 20x40 and 25.4x50.8mm). The effective ranges are 0 to 260, 0 to 130 and 0 to 65kPa (0 to 2.6, 0 to 1.3 and 0 to 0.65 tsf). An optional 50.8x101.6mm vane for very sensitive soils is now being offered. Additionally a “dummy” vane is included to calibrate the six 0.5 meter long extension rods for effects of soil friction. All come in a lightweight carrying case with three small wrenches and a calibration certificate.
