Point Load Testing with a PG10 Digital Pressure Gauge

Digital pressure gauge for point load testingIn the civil, mining and geotechnical engineering realms, point load testing of core rock samples and irregular rock fragments are used to determine rock strength and rock compressive strength. This data is vital in when building tunnels, bridges and other buildings, where rock or ground integrity is always crucial to the support of structures.

The PG10 with its highly visible 2/3” LCD digits and 4.5 diameter face, is being used to monitor the force pressure in this type of testing. The PG10 is calibrated to read 99.71KN (kilo-newtons) at 10000 PSI.
