I found you in the Internet and I have a question about the Soeng Thai Interlocking Compressed Earth Block Press Model BP6. Witch pressure is necessary to compress the earth to the height of 10 cm? Thank you very much. Best regards

Thank you for your inquiry. The height of a compressed earth block basically depends on the design of the press. Some presses allow the height to be slightly adjusted to meet a standard.

The normal pressure for a block should produce a green density of 5 kg/cm^2. This can be checked using a hand-held penetrometer. There are simple ways to control the density. We offer training courses in production. We also have penetrometers for sale.
