Geogauge & Nuclear Density Gauge


GeoGauge: The GeoGauge is a unique, QC/QA field tool that can be used to measure the uniformity of unbound pavement layers by measuring the variability in stiffness throughout a structure. It is an excellent tool for identifying construction anomalies that would otherwise go undetected during construction where only density or percent compaction measurements were used. GeoGauge can be used to verify that the stiffness/ modulus values assumed in the design specifications of new or rehabilitated pavement structures are met.



This dynamic technology used by the GeoGauge simulates real in-use conditions. This factor allows the GeoGauge to directly measure in-place engineering properties during the construction process.

Nuclear Density Gauge (NDG): Moisture/Density Gauges use 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 NDG can be used to test the degree of compaction of practically any paving material such as soil, aggregate, asphalt, concrete, even flyash.



Manufacturer approved re-calibration facilities are available to ensure that gauge accuracy is maintained over several years of use.
