Xplorer 3500 Nuclear Soil Moisture Density Gauge

Rock Solid

InstroTek Model 3500 Xplorer™** nuclear moisture density gauge is designed to provide superior performance, with design experience and expertise that is unmatched in our industry. We asked our customers what is important to them in their gauges, and we have integrated their feedback, such as ease of operation and affordability, into the Xplorer. As with all InstroTek products, our gauges are backed by the most reliable and trustworthy customer service in the industry.

Xplorer has a proven record of dependability since 2006 and our gauges continue to be an asset for leading geotechnical, engineering and construction companies worldwide. We’ve eliminated many useless “bells and whistles,” and Xplorer’s design allows field technicians to perform their job quickly and efficiently, with minimal down time. Our goal with Xplorer was to develop a user-friendly gauge with more consistent performance than any other gauge on the market today, coupled with the lowest maintenance and operating costs.
