The 100 kN stand-alone CPT penetrometer set is a lightweight and economical rig with full Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) capabilities. It is suitable for both electrical and mechanical CPT testing.
The stand-alone CPT penetrometer pusher set composes of a 100 kN penetrometer pusher featuring 2 hydraulic cylinders with manually operated valves and a stainless-steel housing for datalogger and computer, a diesel-hydraulic power-pack with a Hatz diesel engine incorporated in a sound insulating enclosure and hydraulic pump and an anchoring system with hydraulic wrench and ground anchors. It can be transported easily by a standard car using the optional sturdy 2-axle trailer.
The 100 kN stand-alone CPT penetrometer set is made of the highest quality components available and built to last. The choice for high quality components of well-known manufacturers having local service centres worldwide reduces machine downtime to a minimum.
CPT Penetrometer Pusher
A hydraulic penetrometer pusher of classic design, comprising 2 vertical hydraulic cylinders, simultaneously operated, with a stroke of 1175 mm. A thrust block connects the two cylinders. It is capable of driving and pulling the CPT sounding tubes and casing tubes into and out of the ground.
A hydraulic control unit, mounted on a console near the penetrometer pusher, allows the operator to control all functions.
The unit comes complete with 2 guiding tubes, to be applied between the penetrometer and ground level. One for the support of the CPT sounding tubes, the other for casing tubes.
The CPT penetrometer pusher is designed for both electrical and mechanical CPT testing. This penetrometer pusher allows for pushing in and pulling out CPT sounding tubes with a diameter of 36 mm, as well as casing tubes with a diameter of 55 mm, and sampling tubes with a diameter up to 90 mm.
