Fitted on a hydraulic-tracked carriage, which allows
you to move easily even on the most marshy terrain.
It can even be positioned on very steep slopes; thanks to the
three stabilisers and the possibility of tilting the mast,
a perfect verticality is guaranteed to allow rod insertion.
The semi-automatic anchoring system installed
on the mast - necessary to obtain the required reaction
during static tests - allows the operator to fix the machine
in a few, intuitive and simple steps. It also reduces the
insertion stress on the frame.
High energy efficiency
Around 78% of the energy is transmitted to the rods.
Can be used
by a single operator
High performance in a compact
and easily transported penetrometer,
which can be used even by a single operator.
Drastically reduced test times, thanks to the
semi-automatic anchoring system and the option
of driving the rods and their liner tubes into the
ground at the same time.
Static tests can be carried out with
Begemann bit (CPT), or with piezocone (CPTu)
which can be implemented with the seismic module (S-CPTu).
The hammer system for dynamic tests can be: Super Heavy (DPSH), Heavy (DPH) or Medium (DPM).
The rotation head allows to drill some little pre-holes.
Different types of samplers are also available to allow
laboratory analysis of disturbed samples.
to any situation
Static penetrometric tests can be carried out with a Begemann
bit (CPT), or with a piezocone (CPTu) - which allows a more reliable stratigraphic interpretation - and can be implemented with the seismic module (S-CPTu) to determine the profile of the speed
of the shear waves (Vs).
As regards the dynamic tests, depending on the most commonly tested soil types, the penetrometer can be equipped with different hammer systems: Super Heavy (DPSH), Heavy (DPH) or Medium (DPM).
By choosing the static/dynamic configuration, you can obtain information along verticals consisting of soil with different mechanical characteristics (from very soft to very hard and compact).
