CPT GEOTECH NOVA is a modularly designed product family for user-freindly, robust and accurate CPT, CPTU, Seismic CPT (SCPT) and Electric conductivity CPT soil investigations.

 

The probes are designed for use on land as well as off shore and give accurate measurements of cone resistance (qc), sleeve friction (fs), pore pressure (u) and inclination.  

The equipment is available with cordless or cable based communication from the probe to the surface equipment, facilitating full data transfer and near real-time presentation on the operator's screen. The equipment is also available in a memory based version with user-friendly data synchronisation.

 

 

 

Our probes are available in

10 cm² and 15 cm² sizes.

 

 

Geotech started the development of the cordless CPT systems in the late seventies and the equipment was made operational in extensive off shore CPT surveys in the Canadian Arctic in the early eighties (Jefferies M.G and Funegard, E. (1983): Cone penetration testing in the Beaufort Sea. Proc. ASCE Conf. Geotechnical Practice in Offshore Eng., Austin, Tx). The present equipment is a fourth generation and is still today unique on the market.

 

 


Options for sintered pore pressure filters in u1 and u2 positions as well as slot filters are available.
 

  

 

220 (2)

Geotech CPT system can be used on most rigs/penetrometers available on the world market. Our GEORIG 220 is designed for CPT and has a pushing capacity of 200 kN.

 

 

 

Our unique cordless solutions to transfer the measurements from the probe to the surface means no inconveniant cable down the hole!

 

 

Acoustic data transfer

(NOVA ACOUSTIC)

 

Radio wave data transfer

(NOVA RW)

 

Cable based solution

(NOVA CABLE)

Data from the probe is transmitted through the steel of the rod to the pushing microphone and combined with the depth encoder information in the interface that communicates with the logging software in your computer.

 

Data from the probe is transmitted as a radio signal through the air-filled center of the rod to the receiver mounted over and in line with the rod string. Data are combined with depth encoder information in the interface that communicates with the logging software in your computer.

 

 

Data from the probe is transmitted as a digital signal via the cable combined with the depth encoder information in the interface that communicates with the logging software in your computer.

  

CPT GEOTECH NOVA meets the standards EN ISO22476-1 and ASTM D-5778
