HS-5001SD Nuclear Density Gauge

Supports the following standards: ASTM D6938, ASTM D2950, ASTM C1040, AASHTO T310

Humboldt’s NEW HS-5001SD Moisture/Density Gauge provides more efficient operation, data collection and processing than any other gauge in its class. Using state-of-the-art technology, the HS‑5001SD brings you a host of new features aimed at making your job easier. Featuring a 4.3" touch-screen, the SD Gauge provides intuitive operation of all gauge operations. It also provides touch pad operation as an alternative control method. The SD’s versatility allows it to measure density through direct transmission and backscatter modes, as well as thin lift, trench modes and moisture determinations.

The gauge uses an advanced micro-processor-based technology to provide highly-accurate measurements of density and moisture that are automatically computed for direct readouts of wet density, dry density, moisture content, percent of moisture, percent of compaction (Proctor or Marshall), void ratio and air voids. The SD Gauge complies with all pertinent standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310 and is calibrated by the Five-block calibration method.

Humboldt nuclear gauges are available in three models: the SD, EZ2, and EZ Gauges.
