Nuclear Moisture and Density Gauge

Code: BSO-H/HS-5001EZ-2

  • Standards:

    • ASTM D6938
    • D2950
    • C1040
    • AASHTO T310

HS-5001EZ Moisture/Density Gauge is just that easy. Easy to operate, easy to power and easy to service.

The EZ gauge features a menu-driven control panel with easy-to-use, built-in test routines and auto features, making testing a quick and accurate operation. It also features our innovative trigger release handle that eliminates pinched fi ngers while providing smooth operation.

Available in 8” (200mm) and 12” (300mm) lengths with either 1” (25mm) or 2” (50mm) increments, the EZ gauge provides a single gauge solution to density and moisture measurements. The EZ’s versatility allows it to measure density through direct transmission and backscatter modes, as well as including thin lift and trench modes, as well as 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 EZ Gauge complies with all pertinent standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310.


The gauge is calibrated by the Five-block calibration method.
