KSE is pleased to announce that we are certified as an LWD Calibration Station.
CBR (California Bearing Ratio) Determination Tester
• For Oil and Gas Industry
The DCP is perfect for the Oil and Gas Exploration Industries for determining CBR or bearing strength for drill pads and oil field roads.
• For Cell/Mobile Telecommunications Industry
The DCP can determine bearing strength/soil investigation for simple structures such as wireless cell phone tower installation sites or module pad installation for the telecommunications industry. It works anywhere in the world and provides reliable results.
• Quick and Easy
• Durable and Reliable
• CBR and PSF Correlations proven by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) research
• Low Cost
• Available Immediately
• Works in all Soil Conditions
Zorn ZFG 3000 Light Weight Deflectometer (with GPS) ASTM E2835
The Zorn ZFG 3000 is a dynamic plate bearing test system for measuring the bearing capacity (deflection) of subgrade/subsoils and unbound base layers. It is highly portable and easily carried around a construction site. The Zorn ZFG 3000 provides a simple, cost effective answer to time consuming and expensive static plate load tests. The recorder/printer device gives hard copy results in the field. It is also GPS integrated.
Kessler Soils Engineering Products, Inc is proud to announce calibration services for Zorn LWDs and Asphalt Testers. Our facility has been certified by the manufacturer to perform minor repairs and calibrations for the devices. This new service reduces the cost and time of shipping devices back to Germany. Contact us for details of how we can serve you and your Zorn LWDs.
Zorn ZFG 3.0 Light Weight Deflectometer (without GPS) ASTM E2835
The Zorn ZFG 3.0 is a dynamic plate bearing test system for measuring the bearing capacity (deflection) of subgrade/subsoils and unbound base layers. It is highly portable and easily carried around a construction site. The Zorn ZFG 3.0 provides a simple, cost effective answer to time consuming and expensive static plate load tests. The printer gives hard copy results in the field and operates by a hand held (BT) device.
New K-100 DCP KIT
K-100 AD (Airfield Deluxe) DCP
The K-100 AD (Airfield Deluxe) DCP measures the shear strength of soil with a CBR between 0.5-100. This kit is specifically designed for Airfield use. It comes with an Extra Strong 48” Spring Steel Drive Rod, 48” Vertical Scale and 100 disposable cones. It also includes a longer customized crushproof Pelican case to accommodate the longer Drive Rod and Vertical Scale.
Nondestructive Testing of Reinforcements in Pavements
The MIT-SCAN2-BT is a non-destructive method of measuring steel dowel bars and tiebars in joints of concrete pavements. It consists of a compact rail-guided measuring device, an easily assembled GRP (robust glass fiber reinforced plastic) rail system and a Pocket PC. The Pocket PC communicates with the measuring device via a Bluetooth connection.
Nondestructive Thickness Determination of Asphalt Concrete or Concrete Pavements
MIT-SCAN-T2 is an innovative measuring device that can non-destructively and accurately measure the thickness of pavement layers during construction without the requirement for coring. It provides accurate thickness measurements for road pavement layers for highway, municipal and airport pavements, which are critical to ensure compliance with the thickness design and the longevity of the pavements.
