Field Inspection Vane Tester

Field Inspection Vane Tester

SKU: 140501

The vane tester can be used to determine the maximum shearing force that can be exercised on a soil. The standard Field inspection Vane tester is suitable for measurements up to 200 kPa (20 t/m²).

  • Perfect for measuring in top soils 
  • Ideal for agronomists and civil engineers
  • Small but sensitive and accurate 
  • Drag ring for easy read-out 



The Royal Eijkelkamp field inspection tester can be used to measure the maximum shear force that can be applied to a soil. Measurement is possible in the field, on the surface, in profile pits, or on the bottom of boreholes, as well as on samples in the laboratory.

The shear stress measured can be read on a clearly readable scale ring. In soft soils it is not necessary to make a borehole first; in order to determine the friction on the extension rods, a dummy vane is available in these situations.
