Head Assembly, S-20037, is being threaded onto the Sliding Drive Hammer, S-20003.
S-205
The original Dynamic Cone Penetrometer
S-20000
(DCP) was developed in 1959 by the late
Professor George F. Sowers. The DCP uses
a 15 lb (6.8 kg) steel mass falling 20 in (50.8 cm) that strikes
the anvil to cause penetration of a 1.5 in (3.8 cm) diameter cone
(45° vertex angle) that has been seated in the bottom of a hand
augered hole. The blows required to drive the embedded cone
a depth of 1-3/4 in have been correlated by others to N values
derived from the Standard Penetration Test (SPT). Experience
has shown that the DCP can be used effectively in augered
holes to depths of 15 to 20 ft (4.6 to 6.1 m).
3 - Showing the filled Sampler.
Heat treated cone, zinc plated components. The cone
can be replaced with a plated Drive Tube Assembly for collection
of 3 x 10 in (7.6 x 25.4 cm) tube samples in hand augered holes.
The S-200 DCP and Auger Test Set for 10 ft depth includes:
• Standard Sliding Drive Hammer Assembly
• Cone Penetrometer Point with 1-ft Adaptor Rod
• 4 each 30 in “E” Drill Rods
• Standard Auger Head
• 4 each 36-in Auger Extensions
• Tee Handle and Operating Instructions
2 - Driving the Sampler Tube.
The operator is about to release
the 15-lb mass.
The S-205 Cone Penetrometer Test Set for 10-ft depth is similar to the S-200 set above but does not include auger items.
As a related item, the Sleeved Drive Hammer, S-20000, provides
an alternative method of conducting the DCP Test. It is designed
to fit standard “E” drill rod extensions and the penetrometer point
assembly. There are no exterior impact zones on the sleeved
Drive Hammer sides. The 15-lb sleeved Drive Hammer unit is
compact, easy to transport, zinc-plated for protection against corrosion and capable of being disassembled by the user for periodic
inspection and cleaning. Patent Pending.

DGSI Static Cone Penetrometers are used to evaluate the consis tency of soils, their level of compaction and the bearing capacity of
shallow foundations and pavement subgrades. Specifically devel oped for use in fine grained soils, particularly soft soils, they use a
60° cone with a surface area of 1.5 cm2. An optional cone with a 3
cm2 surface area is available for use in very soft soils.
■ Dual rod construction isolates cone resistance from shaft friction
■ Pressure gauge ranging from 0 to 70 kg/cm2 reads cone resistance directly, eliminating need for proving ring conversions
■ Stainless steel and anodized aluminum construction for reliable performance
■ 24-in starter rod and optional 24-in extension rods
Standard models include:
• A 60° cone with a maximum area of 1.5 cm2
• A Starter Rod Assembly designed to withstand an axial force
of 250 lbf (340 N•m) maximum
• Pressure gauge marked in kg/cm2

Pocket Penetrometer
Corps of Engineers Single and DualMass Cone Penetrometers
DGSI's Pocket Penetrometers are commonly
used on split spoon and
thin-walled tube samples
to evaluate consistency and
approximate unconfined compressive strength of saturated
cohesive soils. They may
also be used for the same
purpose in freshly excavated
trenches or test pits.
ASTM D 6951
The Dual-mass Cone Penetrometer, S-218, drops an 8-kg
mass a distance of 575 mm
onto an anvil driving a 60° cone
with a maximum diameter of
20 mm. When used in weaker
subgrades having a CBR value
less than 10, the driving mass
is reduced to 4.6 kg. The Corps
of Engineers has developed a
correlation between CBR and
mm/blow. S-218 includes a
dual mass hammer assembly,
mm scale, assorted hand tools,
25 single-use cones, data
reduction program diskette and
manual.
We offer two models of
Pocket Penetrometers,
each has the scale marked (L-R) S-170 and S-170B
in kg/cm2 and TSF (i.e.,
1 kg/cm2 = 1 TSF) and is
supplied with a carrying pouch, operating and calibration instruction sheet.
S-216 in use
The Single Mass Cone Penetrometer, S-216, has a fixed 8-kg
mass and is recommended for pavement sections with anticipated
CBR values between 10 and 100. The kit includes the sliding mass
assembly, mm scale to measure penetration, 25 single-use cones,
data reduction program diskette and instruction manual.

TORVANE®
Vane Shear Test Kit with Adapters
The TORVANE is a hand
held vane shear device
for rapid determination
of shear strength in
cohesive soils either in
the laboratory or the field.
The TORVANE allows
shear strength to be measured in the sides of test
pits, trenches or excavations. It may also be used
on the ends of thin wall
or split spoon samples
and soil chunks removed
S-160
from test pits, etc. The
TORVANE set includes
three vanes with conversion dial and carrying case:
• Standard vane (0 to 1 kg/cm²): used for fully saturated cohesive soils with undrained strength independent of normal pressure. The stress range permits it to be used for clays varying
in consistency from very soft to stiff.
• Large vane (0.2 kg/cm²): use with remolded samples
• Small vane (2.5 kg/cm²): for stiffer clays
For operation in three sizes
of pipe or casing.
The index mark on the dial will indicate the maximum shear value.
This number must be multiplied by the vane ratio (1, 0.2 or 2.5) to
obtain the actual shear strength.

Torvane is a registered trademark of Durham Geo Enterprise, Inc.
Hand Held Field Vane Shear Tester
The Vane Shear Tester takes direct readings of shear strength to
depths up to 3 meters (10 ft). Three vane sizes allow for the direct
determination of undrained shear strength of soft to stiff clays. The
peak vane value is determined by a calibrated scale ring built into
the head assembly. The tee handle is used both to push the vane
to the desired test depth and apply the shearing torque.
To correct for the skin friction of the extension rods, a dummy
probe replaces the vane and a skin friction test is performed adjacent to the vane test location.
The Field Vane Shear Tester includes:
• Torque Head Assembly
• Six Extension Rods, 50 cm long by 1 cm diameter
• Three Vanes, 16 x 32 mm, 20 x 40 mm, 25.4 x 50.8 mm,
(0.63 x 1.25 in, 0.79 x 1.58 in, 1 x 2 in)

Speedy Moisture Tester Calibration (6 or 20 g version),
per ASTM standard, (1/2 division)
Determine the moisture content as percent water of most soils in
about 3 minutes. The measured sample is placed in the pressure
chamber with calcium carbide reagent. The water in the soil and
the reagent react to produce acetylene gas. The gauge reads
the percent water content from 0-20% based on weight with an
accuracy of 0.5%.

How To Order
Step 1. Select Permeability and/or Triaxial Cells
ASTM* D 2850, D 4767, D 5084
AASHTO* T 296, T 297
* See Standards Buyer's Guide at www.DGSI.info/3000.
The DGSI Triaxial and Permeability Cells are designed to accommodate
samples with diameters from 1.4 to 12 in (35 mm to 305 mm). They feature
no-volume-change valves and removable base pedestals to accommodate
various sample sizes and the piston housing features linear bearings for
reduced friction. Two top and two bottom drainage lines are provided with
through-base-sealing to avoid air traps.
S-480 is the standard model for testing test specimens up to 4-in diameter and about 6-in in length. It is equipped with both 1.4 and 2.8-in cap
and pedestal set made of series 303 stainless steel (SS). In addition, the
valves are stainless steel and tubing is Teflon. These are for customers
that might be testing material where the permeant is corrosive or they need
to test both 1.4 and 2.8-in specimens. Finally, the customer may decide on
the standard models because the SS valves will not tarnish with age. Note:
If the permeant is corrosive the customer will require the S-470 permeant
interface device to protect the control panels.
S-480 Permeability Cell
shown with a Pore-Pressure
Transducer (sold separately).
Designed to provide outstanding service and performance. The cells have
hard-coated, black anodized aluminum bases and cell tops, while remaining parts are made of stainless steel, brass or acrylic.
Measuring changes of the test specimen length during testing:
S-511 Triaxial and Permeability Cell
!
• S-500 series triaxial cell equipped with bracket for mounting dial
indicator (E-814) or displacement sensor LDT E-311.
• S-480 series triaxial cells do not have that provision. To measure
height change during testing, use S-500 series triaxial cells.
Know the following before making your selection:
• Will you be performing triaxial tests, permeability tests, or both?
• What size samples will you be testing?
• How many simultaneous tests will you be performing?
When using corrosive permeants, always select permeability cells with stainless steel valves. In addition, the Permeant Interface Device,
(S-470) is recommended to prevent the permeants from entering the panels. See page 26 for details.
Note: All cells include cap and pedestal set (sizes and type below), one pair of porous stones, two plastic discs, Nylon tubing and O-rings.

Step 2. Choose your panel(s)
Note: Select the type and quantity of each panel based on the number of cells
needed for simultaneous testing. One S-500 panel can support up to two S-502
extension panels. The S-502 extension panels cannot operate independently
from the S-500. All DGSI panels are built with quality gauges, valves, and fittings.
Contact DGSI to request a quote to meet your needs.
The DGSI master panel (S-500) and extension panel (S-502) control the pressure
and permeant flow to and from the triaxial or permeability cell. The S-500 contains
the main operation panel which includes air and vacuum gauges to monitor the main
supply, de-airing tank fill, vacuum, and pressure controls, an auxiliary vacuum port,
and a pressure transducer and digital readout with a selector valve for monitoring
pressure to each burette.
Each cell being tested requires three individual burette assembly used to monitor
the cell pressure, sample bottom pedestal, and sample top cap. The S-500 can
supply one cell and the S-502 can supply up to two cells. The S-502 is connected to
the S-500 using tee fittings and tubing from the back of the S-500 panel. Pressure
readings from the S-502 are displayed on the S-500 readout via momentary
switches.
Each burette assembly is constructed with acrylic tube
and top and bottom blocks with stand-off fittings for easy
removal to clean or service as needed. A standard glass
pipette (25 ml with 0.1 ml markings) is supplied inside each
burette assembly. Optional pipettes of 10ml, 5ml, or 1ml
are available upon request. All pipette markings are factory
calibrated.

Permeability and Triaxial Shear
Step 3. Select Utilities for Panel
Selection of proper permeability/triaxial support equipment is essential for ensuring proper panel operation and accurate results.
DGSI panel setups require a suitable deairing tank, vacuum
pump, compressed air and accessories for proper operation.
Clean, dry air and vacuum sources are strongly recommended
to maintain consistent performance. Consider adding a vacuum
pump water trap kit (G-39620), air dryer w/oil extractor (G-420),
and a filter regulator (G-41020) to maximize panel efficiency.
Nold Water Deaerator
!
Permeability / Triaxial Panels require the following:
• Deairing Tank • Vacuum Pump • Water
• Drain • Clean, Dry, Compressed Air
Deairing Water Tank
The self-contained Nold deairing system
deairs six liters of water to less than 0.5 ppb
dissolved oxygen in 4 min. It operates by
mechanical agitation with the application of
a vacuum. The agitation / vacuum system is
significantly more efficient than conventional
methods using heat-boiling methods. The
system uses a 0.02 hp electric motor an
is great for labs that have to perform tests
quickly. Dimensions: 7.5 in x 7.5 in x 20 in
(19 x 19 x 51 cm).
The chamber is 6-in dia. by 16-in high
and is made from clear, cast acrylic.
The head and base are anodized
aluminum and are connected by
stainless steel tie rods. The head has
two fittings, one to allow a tube to pass
through to the bottom of the chamber
for filling and extracting water, and the
other to allow connection to a vacuum
pressure source.

Step 5. For Triaxial, Choose Transducers and Readout Options
Skempton’s Value or “B” Value is an important value used in
permeability and triaxial testing. DGSI's sensors and readouts
are used to monitor pore water pressure within the sample being
tested. The end result is used to calculate and determine sample
saturation values (“B” Value).
Each DGSI transducer requires a subordinate readout device to
display the output signal.
!
The EZ-Daq is recommended when...
• Three or more sensors / readouts are needed.
• When multiple tests (sensors) are being run simultaneously.
(WinSAS software does not support simultaneous testing.)

Bleed-Type Pressure Regulators are recommended for maximum sensitivity and stability against upstream supply pressure
changes. All regulators are designed to accept supply pressures
up to 250 psi. The supply pressure should always be at least
20 psi above the maximum regulated pressure and the regulator
capacity should match the gauge or pressure transducer capacity.
These regulators have a sensitivity of less than 1/4 in. of water.
Differential pressure regulators are used to maintain a preset
pressure difference between two pressures even if the pressure is
raised or lowered.

Terraload Consolidation Load Frame
AASHTO* T 216
* See Standards Buyer's Guide at www.DGSI.info/3000.
We offer both the pneumatic consolidometer S-450 Terraload and
the S-449 lever-type dead weight loading device. The following
may help in choosing between a pneumatic or lever-type consolidation frame:
The S-450 Terraload Pneumatic Loading Device:
• requires less space in the lab than a dead weight device.
• has a lesser chance of being bumped compared to the levertype.
• is easier to operate when it comes to adding loads to the sample. Operators tend to prefer turning a valve rather than carefully
adding a weight by hand. The weight on the dead weight device
can be added too fast or too slow and affect results. Therefore
loading weight may require some operator experience.
• requires a source of compressed air. This is an additional
expense. There is also a chance that the power will fail, thus
a chance of “losing the sample.” The lever-type requires no
external source of air, and is independent of electrical power or
air compressor failures.
The S-449 Dead Weight Loading Device:
• may be more appropriate for soils that swell at low stresses.
• slightly less costly to set up, but the pneumatic frame costs
less when multiple units are purchased, because one S-45040
Digital Readout and pressure transducer can be used with
multiple S-450 units.

Load is applied by compressed air via a piston coupled to a rolling
diaphragm. This unique design virtually eliminates friction over the
maximum 1 in (2.5 cm) of piston travel. Precision air regulators
provide the needed accuracy and stability at low and high loads. Ball
valves are used to allow for instant application of loads.
Model S-450 is housed in a high impact case with an anodized
cross beam, supports and platen. The Terraload is supplied as a
basic machine without the dial gauge, digital readout with transducer

California UBC 29-2
The hardware and software required to add data collection to your
existing consolidometer, new S-450 or new S-449 are listed below.
This consolidometer is used to test
remolded specimens for expansion. The
sample is first compacted in a 4 x 1 in
(10.1 x 2.54 cm) ring and then placed
in the consolidometer with dried porous
stones. The supplied 12.6 lb (5.7 kg)
weight is placed on the assembled
specimen which is allowed to consolidate
for 10 minutes. It is then immersed in
distilled water for up to 24 hours. During
this time, the sample height is monitored
with the dial gauge for determining the
maximum swell.
The Expansion Index Consolidometer
S-441 with S-44150
is made from anodized aluminum with
stainless steel hold down rods, specimen (sold separately)
ring and weight. It is supplied with ring,
porous stones and weight. Dial indicator not included.

The S-611 Auto Load Frame is based on our time proven S-610
Load Frame (see p.30). When connected to a PC, the S-611 Auto
Load Frame offers the ability to perform LBR, CBR and UCC tests
with a minimum of operator involvement. Once the test is started,
the operator may leave the test area. The computer controls the
S-611, records load and deflection readings, shows the test in
progress on an on-screen graph, automatically stops the test and
returns the platen to the start position for the next test. Separate
reporting software calculates results and provides final reports
that can be printed.
The front-panel mounted selector switch allows the user to choose
the mode of operation between “manual” and “auto”. In manual
mode, the S-611 load frame operates the same as the S-610.
Compared to the S-610, the S-611 offers three major additions:
■ The platen will automatically retract to the lower home position
when a preset load and/or displacement condition is satisfied.
The platen will retract when a pre-set maximum displacement,
load, or load drop-off (indicating the test is completed) has
been reached or if sample failure has been detected.
■ New Smart Digital Indicators permit continuous transmission
of data. Programmable features include setting end of test
conditions and transmitting information to a computer using
Windows©-based serial acquisition software called WinSAS™.
■ CBR and LBR software retrieves the data file to produce data
report sheet, complete with load-deformation plots.

Direct Shear
Direct Shear Machine
ASTM D 3080
AASHTO T 236
Two similar systems are available:
• The S-490 applies dead weight loading with optional weights.
Generally considered to be more sensitive at low loads.
• The S-492 uses a pneumatic air cell to apply the vertical load.
Smaller footprint. Easier to apply normal loads but requires a
compressed air source. An optional kit for residual shear testing is available.
DURHAM GEO SLOPE INDICATOR
The Dead Weight Direct Shear Machine, S-490,
with optional kit for residual shear testing uses a dead weight
system for applying the vertical load to the specimen. A 10:1 ratio
beam allows the application of vertical loads up to 1411 lb (6.3 kN)
depending on the weight set selected.
The operator sets horizontal travel with limit switches. Strain rates
are set with digital thumb wheels. Horizontal loads are displayed
on a panel-mounted E-405 Smart Digital Readout with RS-485
output. The units are compact and self contained.
The S-490 has casters. The S-492 is cabinet mounted.
Note: To perform residual shear testing, a conversion kit
(part number S-49220) is required.
Pneumatic Direct Shear Machine, S-492,
features two pneumatic pistons to provide the vertical load to the
specimen with accuracy. A small diameter rolling diaphragm piston
provides small loads from 4 lbf to 100 lbf (18 to 4.5 kN). A large
diameter piston provides loads up to 1500 lbf (6.7 kN).

Laboratory Data Acquisition
Data Acquisition and Reporting Software
We offer data acquisition systems for the soil testing laboratory:
 WinSAS, a Windows®-based serial acquisition system used in conjunction with E-405 Smart Digital Indicators which are modified for
serial port communication.
 A suite of reporting software to present the information in a way that conforms with the relevant ASTM standard.
 EZ-Daq 8-channel data acquisition system (see p.46).
WinSAS™ — Windows®-based collecting software
■ Increased production. Sensor readings are automatically
saved and available 24 / 7 if necessary.
■ Data accuracy: Automated data collection eliminates operator
errors.
■ Ease of use: Having digital readouts at the work station makes
it easy for the user to set up samples and visually monitor test
progress.
■ Flexibility to use the readouts without the PC if desired.
■ Easy to retrofit on older load frames.
WinSAS™ is a Windows®-based serial acquisition software used
in conjunction with E-405 Smart Digital Indicators which have
been modified for serial port communication. The software is preconfigured for common laboratory tests such as shear strength,
consolidation and penetration. However, the user can use the
software to collect data from a wide range of tests limited only by
the communication speed of the E-405 Smart Digital Indicators.
WinSAS™ gives the user the convenience of having digital indicators at the test stand with the ability of transferring the test data to
a standard ASCII text file. Multiple E-405 Smart Digital Indicators
may be linked together via a standard phone (RJ-45) cable to a
multiple plug connector. An RS-485/RS-232 converter is connected to the user’s computer via a standard DB-9 COMM port
connection.
Data Reduction and Reporting Software for Laboratory Soil
Testing
Our suite of Windows®-compatible software programs read data,
perform calculations and generate graphical and tabular output as
well as test reports conforming to the respective ASTM standard.
The various programs have a common rationale that makes it
easy to move from one program to another.
Principal features are:
 Windows® 98 through XP compatible.
 Powerful data base manager automatically saves input files by
project ID.
 Uses data from WinSAS™ output file.
 User-selectable engineering units for input and output.
 Software pre-configured to show company or agency name in
the output report.

Reporting Software, Unconfined Compression (UCC)
E-41525
Reporting Software, California Bearing Ratio (CBR)
E-41525A
Reporting Software, Florida's Limerock Bearing Ratio (LBR)
WinSAS™ software permits the user to create a “test machine” by
grouping sensors from a user defined library to perform a specific
task, such as a CBR test. The sensor library contains the sensor type, maximum range, calibration, date and serial number.
WinSAS™ software includes a library of common soil tests from
which the user selects the type of test to be performed. The user
has the ability to change the suggested intervals on the fly. The
user can create custom logging profiles and intervals containing
up to 9999 data points.
Output of each channel assigned to the “test machine” is displayed with the elapsed time and reading. Also, any channel can
be graphically displayed with the sensor value plotted on the ordinate and the elapsed time on the abscissa or user-defined graphs
such as load versus deformation.

DURHAM GEO SLOPE INDICATOR
Digital Transducer Readouts
The E-405 programmable Smart Digital Indicator is a single-channel digital readout with a “99999” display. It sends a direct voltage
of 5 or 10 V to a load cell, pressure or displacement transducer
or temperature transducer. The transducer then sends a millivolt
signal back to the readout, based on the amount of stress or strain
applied to the transducer. The E-405 then takes the millivolt signal
and converts it into engineering units based on the calibration factors stored in memory. The direct display of readings in engineering units is very convenient for the operator, increases productivity
and minimizes the potential for recording errors in the lab.
The E-405 has fast control responses (60 readings/sec), true peak
reading capability and an analog output that accurately tracks the
signal input. It has an adaptive digital filter that automatically selects the best time constant for minimum noise, and yet responds
rapidly to an actual change in signal level.
When purchased with a DGSI transducer, the E-405 is supplied
with a NIST Traceable Certificate of Calibration. The front panel
allows user set-up and re-calibration by using push buttons.
Optional accessories include RS-232, Relay Board and Analog
“plug in” boards which allow the E-405 to output data to plotters or
computers. An RS-485 board is also available to connect up to
31 indicators using 4-wire phone cable (also known as daisy
chaining). This feature allows the laboratory manager to customize the data acquisition from 1 to 31 channels and use the RS-485
to RS-232 converter to bring the data into the “Com Port” on his
computer.
The E-405 can be customized for a wide variety of industry testing
tasks. If you have a special application, please call us to discuss
your requirements.

EZ-DAQ device showing, in this photograph, live data for three tests and
six sensors. Data from up to eight sensors may be acquired and displayed
simultaneously using the EZ-DAQ.
Description:
Now you can collect data easily from your current laboratory equipment with the EZ-DAQ System. EZ-DAQ is an
8-channel, 16-bit data acquisition unit* that is easy to use
and configure. The EZ-DAQ can perform locally all data
acquisition functions (sampling, signal conditioning, A/D
conversions), and when connected to a PC, can capture
data and display real-time graphs. Designed specifically for
the needs of today’s soils labs, the unit is flexible, reliable, and robust.
The bright, color screen is easy to read and has a high
performance CPU for ultra-fast screen refresh. The screen
is rugged for use in dirty, dusty conditions and incorporates a touch-panel for easy data entry. No openings to get
clogged or jammed.
In addition, connections for up to eight industry-standard
sensors are conveniently located on the rear of the unit.
These connections supply the common 10 V dc excitation
required by most of today’s sensors. Along with the excitation, the connections also handle the sensor return signals.
The flexibility designed into the EZ-DAQ System allows for
the return signals to be configured in mV, V, or mA, and a
multitude of ranges.
The EZ-DAQ-Soft software, which is included with the unit,
is highly configurable and simple to use. It gives the ability
to display up to eight active channels of data simultaneously on a PC. The system can support as many as six
individual tests with each test capable of having its own
sampling rate. The test files are saved as delimited text
which may be imported easily in a spreadsheet program or
simply opened as an ASCII text file.
Communication from the EZ-DAQ to the user's PC is done
with standard Ethernet protocol. Set up is uncomplicated
because it uses a static IP address.
* EZ-DAQ is not a data logger because it does not store data.

Load Cells measure the total load applied to a sample. DGSI
S-Type load cells display excellent long term stability and have
significant overload characteristics to protect against accidental
damage. They are made in a variety of ranges and are easily
adapted to any type of load frame. Select from the range or contact us for information on other ranges available and calibration in
other engineering units.
Load cells have tapped female ends with 1/2 x 20 tpi for E-210
and E-212, and 3/4 x 16 tpi for E-214, E-215, E-216 and E-217.

ORDERING INFORMATION
S-333
S-33310
S-333 Automated Soil Compactor shown with hammer and mold.
(hammers and molds sold separately).
The S-333 Automated Soil Compactor provides uniform, consistent and safe mechanical compaction of Proctor and CBR
samples for quality test results in the laboratory. Mechanized compaction minimizes inconsistencies and operator errors associated
with hand compaction and frees the operator for other tasks.
Benefits:
■ Soil layers are uniformly compacted, every time.
■ Conformity to ASTM and AASHTO standards for hammer drop
height is assured because the hammer lift compensates for
changing sample height.
■ Display shows number of layers and blow counts per layer to
prevent common causes of operator errors. Blows can be preset in memory and automatically stop the machine.
■ Changing hammer drop height (to accommodate alternate test
requirements) is simple and very quick — just insert a couple
of spacers and you’re ready. 12 or 18 in drop.
■ Safety operation — fully enclosed drive mechanism, locking mechanism to prevent the hammer from falling when the
machine is OFF, and emergency shut-off button.
■ Rotating base accepts molds from a variety of manufacturers.
■ Works with standard, CBR and LBR molds.
