Penetrometer

ASTM D5 IP 49 PENETRATION OF BITUMINOUS MATERIAL
This test method covers determination of the penetration of semi-solid and solid bituminous materials.

EN 1426 BITUMEN AND BITUMINOUS BINDERS – DETERMINATION OF NEEDLE PENETRATION
For determining the consistency of bitumen and bituminous binders. Normal procedure is described for penetrations up to 330 but for penetrations above this value, up to 500, different operating parameters are necessary.

ASTM D217 IP 50 CONE PENETRATION LUBRICATING GREASE
These test methods cover four procedures for measuring the consistency of lubricating greases by the penetration of a cone of specified dimensions, mass, and finish.

ASTM D937 IP 179 ISO 2137 DIN 51580 CONE PENETRATION OF PETROLATUM
This test method covers measuring with a penetrometer the penetration of petrolatum as an empirical measure of consistency.

ASTM D1321 IP 376 DIN 51579 NEEDLE PENETRATION OF PETROLEUM WAXES
This test method covers the empirical estimation of the consistency of waxes derived from petroleum by measurement of the extent of penetration of a standard needle. This test method is applicable to waxes having a penetration of not greater than 250.

ASTM D1403 IP 310 ISO 2137 CONE PENETRATION OF LUBRICATING GREASE USING ¼ AND ½ SCALE CONE EQUIPMENT
These test methods cover two procedures for measuring the consistency of small samples of lubricating greases by penetration of a 1⁄4-scale cone or a 1⁄2-scale cone. These test methods include procedures for the measurement of unworked and worked penetrations.

ASTM D2884 YIELD STRESS OF HETEROGENEOUS PROPELLANTS BY CONE PENETRATION METHOD
This test method covers determination of the yield stress of heterogeneous propellants, both of the gel and emulsion types, containing from 0 to 70 % solid additives.
