Cone Penetrometers

RIMIK hand-held Cone Penetrometers are the practical tool of choice for soil surveys involving soil compaction, trafficability and moisture distribution.  For convenience, results are logged for download to your computer at a later time.  Results provide accurate information on soil resistance.

RIMIK Cone Penetrometers come with a guarantee of workmanship and functionality and are suitable for use in all industries.  RIMIK electronic Cone Penetrometers have been manufactured in Toowoomba for almost 40 years.  These instruments are very robust and some of our earliest models are still in use today.  With a range of current models on offer, there is a cost effective RIMIK Cone Penetrometer to suit your application.
