ecpt 80

With the ECPT sensor you measure the conductivity of the soil while performing standard CPTU test. Test results can be used for analysing salinity and detection of pollutants.


The electric conductivity sensor is mounted on Geotechs 10 cm2 CPTU probes. The adapter consists of an array of four ring electrodes (Wenner configuration, i.e. with equal spacing between the electrodes). 


The CPTU probe with the electric conductivity sensor is used with cable or cordless data transmission. The probe is pressed into the ground in the same way as other Geotech CPT probes and readings are made every second.
