Testing Perma-Zyme Treated Soil

Upon completion of applying Perma-Zyme, the soil can be tested to ensure the soil is treated and cured properly. This test can be performed by two different methods.

Nuclear Density Gauge

A Nuclear Density Gauge is a device that measures the density of the soil on site by inserting a rod into the soil. This test is often very effective and easy since it can be performed on site. It is common that if significant time has elapsed the Perma-Zyme treated soil will be too hard to insert into the soil.

Often times Geotechnical Laboratories will offer the service of using a Nuclear Density Gauge to measure the density of the soil on site.


This can be achieved by using a coring drill to receive a core of the cured soil. The core can then be tested in a laboratory for compressive strength.
