Humboldt's HS-5001EZ Nuclear Gauge is all about Easy.

Humboldt’s HS-5001EZ Moisture/Density Gauge is easy to operate, easy to power and easy to service.


The EZ gauge is designed to take the rigors of construction sites and is built to withstand heavy usage. These gauges are sealed to keep out dust and dirt better than other gauges and the plastic cover resists breakage unlike those who use brittle plastic in their construction. The Humboldt nuclear gauge field-serviceable, which allows you to service your own gauge with parts shipped directly to you. The EZ gauge also does not require Humboldt for calibration and can be calibrated by 3rd party calibrators, and, there is no surcharge for the access codes for calibration. The EZ gauge features a menu-driven control panel with easyto-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 fingers while providing smooth operation.

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 microprocessor-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 and is calibrated by the five-block calibration method.
