The CPT push-and-pull clamp is purposely designed for automatic pushing and pulling of CPT sounding tubes (Ø = 36 mm) and casing tubes (Ø = 55 mm) during electrical CPT testing operations.
The CPT push-and-pull clamp has a pushing capacity of 200 kN and a pulling capacity of 260 kN. It fits in the yoke of a 100 kN as well as a 200 kN CPT penetrometer pusher. It can be used in combination with all type of electric CPT cones / piezocones and friction reducers.
The removable clamping blocks are made of hard metal. The force, applied on the tubes by the clamp, is distributed evenly by the clamping blocks over the gripping area. This guarantees excellent seizing and prevents damaging or deformation of the sounding tube.
Pushing and pulling CPT sounding tubes and casing tubes has eventually become an easy and quick job.
