The 200kN static penetrometer on trailer has been designed as a 2 in 1 equipment. It is on the one hand an easily transportable equipment thanks to its trailer and simple to use with its ergonomic working platform, and on the other hand it can be used in portable mode (all the components being detachable) for work on sites not allowing the access or the use of the trailer, or when the customer wishes to install it on another carrier or on a platform / barge for offshore work (near and off-shore). The complete trailer with all its components can also be manoeuvred by hoist and/or used directly on a platform/barge.

The design of this penetrometer offers complete protection against impact through the metal guards covering the thrust cylinders, thus eliminating the risk of hydraulic leaks. The larger working area makes it easier to operate, especially when handling rods. The push/pull bridge integrated into the penetrometer allows the use of all models of push/pull brakes, either hydraulic or mechanical (for electrical CPT tests) and measuring heads (for mechanical CPT tests).

The easily manoeuvrable single axle trailer is reinforced by a robust frame with 4 stabilising legs. With the central work platform, the operator has all controls within easy reach. CPT operations as well as the supply of the hydraulic anchoring system are controlled from the control panel.

The hydraulic rod brake, integrated in the drilling beam, is perfectly suited for all static penetration tests and especially for tests on barge and in low-strength soil for better productivity and to avoid the loss of the drill string and cone in the borehole.

The optional waterproof and swivel-mounted protective housing for the PC and data acquisition system ensures that reliable CPT(u) tests can be carried out even under the most difficult climatic conditions.

The penetrometer, hydraulic unit and rod rack can be detached from the trailer for portable use. A kit including mounting brackets for the penetrometer, a wheeled trolley for the rod rack and quick-connect hydraulic hoses to connect the penetrometer to the hydraulic system, makes this system highly versatile.
