Video: Geoprobe® 2060CPT Introduction

Climate Control for CPT

Drillers seeking to rely on static weight for their CPT machine choose the 2060CPT. Completing cone penetration testing (CPT testing) from the comfort of the climate-controlled cabin on the CPT machine, clients can observe the large visual display projecting real-time data as testing is performed. The 142 HP engine/hydraulic systems provide the CPT machine with excellent climbing and turning ability in rugged/unlevel terrain or steep grades. Low ground pressure of 7-psi minimizes terrain disturbance while the swinging control panel allows for operation from either side of the low-profile CPT press. Additional advantages of the CPT machine include:

  • 20-tons of downforce and 30-tons of pull with weight evenly distributed over the entire platform for efficient CPT testing
  • Option to add a 6712DT mast outside the CPT machine for coring, conventional soil sampling, shallow drilling for soil verification and pre-drilling
  • Large side door makes for easy loading and unloading of rods and equipment

Owners seeking to serve geotechnical and environmental industries find the 2060CPT well suited for utilizing Direct Image® tooling to complete their environmental investigations from the comfort of the CPT machine.


Features & Options


Video: Geoprobe® 2060CPT Overview

Owners seeking to expand their CPT testing service area choose the 2060CPT realizing customers appreciate the comfort of the climate-controlled cabin on the CPT machine. However, its versatility to serve various industries with Direct Image® tooling and available options to perform pre-drilling and other conventional soil sampling results in expanded CPT machine utilization. 

  • COMFORT: user-friendly control panel allows operation from either side of the CPT machine. Climate-controlled cabin expands calendar for CPT testing. Large side door allows for open air environment when desired.
  • CONVENIENCE: large engine bay doors ease engine maintenance. Option for additional mast provides capability to conduct other types of coring with the same CPT machine. Large side door allows for easy loading of rods and equipment. Digital display affords real-time viewing of CPT testing data.
  • CONTROL: four hydraulic outriggers provide machine leveling. Engine/hydraulic systems provide excellent climbing and turning in tough terrains or on steep grades. Low ground pressure limits terrain disturbance. Static weight distributed evenly over the entire platform with 20 tons downforce and 30 tons pull makes CPT testing efficient.

20 Tons Downforce / 30 Tons of Pull


Push the cone with up to 20 tons downforce with the hydraulic push clamp and press on the 2060CPT machine.

Push the cone with up to 20 tons downforce with the hydraulic push clamp and press on the 2060CPT machine.

The rig features 20 tons of downforce and 30 tons of pull. With a push through center of gravity, the weight is evenly distributed over the entire platform. The weight of the entire cabin crawler is centered at the press clamp so that the entire mass of the crawler is applied to the tool string being advanced.

The hydraulic push clamp and press can push the cone with up to 20 tons of downforce. The amount of force can be adjusted on the control panel. A hydraulic bottom clamp is used to keep rods from slipping back down hole when the push clamp is released. When retracting the tool string, the 2060CPT has 30 tons of pull.


Robust Track System


Climb and turn with ease using the robust track system on the 2060CPT.

Climb and turn with ease using the robust track system on the 2060CPT.

The robust track system of the 142-horsepower 2060CPT allows for CPT testing in most terrains. Its proven drive-train and chassis provide excellent climbing and turning ability. With a ground pressure of 7 psi, it causes minimal disturbance to the terrain with minimal ground pressure at the tracks. The rig is tracked to the testing location with either a wireless or tethered remote.


Climate-controlled Cabin with Large Side Door


Easily load and unload rods and equipment on the 2060CPT.

Shear Wave Generators (optional)


Measure shear wave with optional shear wave generators available for the 2060CPT.

Measure shear wave with optional shear wave generators available for the 2060CPT.

Optional shear wave generators are used to generate a shear wave impact for sensing measurement by the Seismic Cone Penetrometer. They provide a sharp, swift hammer strike, producing a clean energy wave through the soil for the cone to read.


6712DT Mast (optional)


Use your CPT machine for coring, soil sampling, soil verification drilling, and pre-drilling when you add the optional 6712DT mast on the porch side.

Use your CPT machine for coring, soil sampling, soil verification drilling, and pre-drilling when you add the optional 6712DT mast on the porch side.

An optional 6712DT mast can be mounted on to the porch side of the 2060CPT. This allows for coring, conventional soil sampling, shallow drilling for soil verification, and pre-drilling. In many cases, it may be required to create a hole opening for CPT by clearing concrete or debris. The 6712DT mast opens up these options on one rig. It is located in-line with the CPT press inside the cabin. The crawler can easily be tracked over the drilled hole when the time comes to perform the CPT test.


Control Panel


Position comfortably to see CPT cone and readouts with the user-friendly control panel on swing arm in the 2060CPT.

Position comfortably to see CPT cone and readouts with the user-friendly control panel on swing arm in the 2060CPT.

CPT

The NOVA CPT test cone introduces higher resolution, more robust construction and improved accuracy. NOVA CPT delivers improved durability and sensitivity in an instrumented cone. The Geotech AB NOVA CPT system has always been unique in the geotechnical industry and is known for its cordless data transmission system: a constant digital stream of data is sent to the surface through the sounding rods. No cable through the rods is needed in the cordless setup. Cable CPT has always been an option, but now with Cable NOVA we can offer an entry-level cost-effective approach. For more than 20 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, offering repair and calibration services. The cordless or corded NOVA CPT test cones can be used from a variety of push platforms to provide continuous data, repeatable penetration results, and cost savings over traditional boring and sampling methods. NOVA Cones adhere to the national standards for construction (ASTM D-5778 Standard Test Method for Performing Electronic Friction Cone and Piezocone Penetration Testing of Soils, as well as ISO 22476-1-11:2004).
