The 200 kN lightweight CPT penetrometer set is an 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 200 kN penetrometer pusher featuring 2 hydraulic cylinders with manually operated valves, a diesel-hydraulic power-pack with a Hatz diesel engine and hydraulic pump, trolley for the transport of tubes and anchors, an hydraulic wrench and a set ground anchors.
The 200 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 2 vertical hydraulic cylinders, simultaneously operated, with a stroke of 650 mm. A thrust block connects the two cylinders. It is capable of driving and pulling the CPT sounding 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. This console can be taken of the pusher frame for easy transport and handling. The unit comes complete with a guiding tubes, to be applied between the penetrometer and ground level.
The CPT penetrometer pusher is designed for both electrical and mechanical CPT testing.
