Piezocones! 100% New Design

Gouda Geo-Equipment BV

We feel really proud to introduce to you the next generation piezocones, named P10-CFPTxy and P15-CFPTxy. The advantages are:

  • Totally new design
  • 75% stronger than the previous generation S10 and S15 cones
  • Analog & digital output
  • Real-time temperature compensation
  • Temperature is logged as well

When designing this new generation P10-CFPTxy and P15-CFPTxy cones every aspect has been scrutinized, including the mechanical design, types of steel and hardening procedures, seals, strain gauges, amplifier and most of all the output signals.

The P10-CFPTxy and P15-CFPTxy piezocones generate both an analog and digital output. This makes them very well suited to be used in combination with the current GeoLogger and GME-500 systems, but also in combination with digital CPT-Logger and later with wireless data transmission (no modifications required).

In addition to the fact that the cones are about 75% stronger than the previous generation, the cones offer real-time temperature compensation. Each strain gauge bridge is for this purpose provided with its own temperature sensor and the changes in temperature are compensated in real time.

The P10-CFPTxy and P15-CFPTxy piezocones are also suitable for CPT tests without measurement of the pore pressure. In that case a different conical tip is mounted. These piezocones are truly geared up for the future.
