  • Description

    Supports the following standards: ASTM D7698

    The Electrical Density Gauge (EDG) is a nuclear-free alternative for determining the moisture and density of compacted soils used in road beds and foundations. The EDG is a portable, battery-powered instrument capable of being used anywhere without the concerns and regulations associated with nuclear safety. Its user-friendly, step-by-step menu guides the user through each step of the testing procedure and cautions the user when values do not correspond to established curves for the material being tested. Easy-to-use, the EDG can be used as a construction aid to monitor day-to-day compaction operations by providing performance and measurement results highly comparable to those achieved with traditional methods, including the nuclear gauge and/or a sand-cone and oven moisture test combination. When conducting a test, the EDG measures and displays the results for wet and dry density, gravimetric moisture content and percent compaction.

    The advantages of using the EDG are:

    • It does not require a highly-trained or licensed technician
    • It does not require special handling for shipping or the regulatory compliance for hazardous materials
    • It is easy-to-learn and easy-to-use with its step-by-step menu
    • It is lightweight and easily transportable
    • It is accurate and repeatable with results that mirror known testing methods

    The EDG Gauge includes:

    • Console/Case
    • 4-tapered 6" darts
    • Hammer
    • Soil sensor and cables
    • Dart template
    • Temperature probe
    • Battery charger
    • Field verifier
