CPT by Geoprobe®

Platforms and Tooling Backed by Expert Support

Constant pressure to become more cost-efficient causes engineers to opt for more sophisticated sampling methods. Increasingly engineers are calling out CPT drilling to better dial in the formation class, potentially saving on the foundation and ultimately the project cost. New engineers coming up the curve grew up using CPT drilling and are naturally choosing to leverage its advantages. With more than 20 years of experience with CPT drilling, Geoprobe® offers machines, tooling, training, calibration, and support for CPT drilling.

CPT Drilling Platforms

Maximize the value of your investment by choosing a CPT drilling platform best suited to your specific business model. Whether you’re seeking a dedicated CPT drilling rig – like our 2060CPT Cabin Crawler, 20 CPT Press-Skid Steer, or 20 CPT Press-6712DT – or a combination drilling rig that can run a variety of applications – including CPT, geotechnical, and environmental, you’ll find the combination of features to push your business ahead.

CPT Tooling

For 23 years, Geoprobe Systems® has teamed up with Geotech AB of Sweden to be the exclusive U.S. distributor for Geotech AB Cone Penetration Testing tools for geotechnical and environmental studies. We also provide the service and support, providing repair and calibration services. These cordless or corded NOVA CPT cones can be used from a variety of CPT drilling platforms to provide continuous data, repeatable penetration results, and cost savings when compared to more traditional boring and sampling methods.
