Hagstrom Drilling can provide CPT testing as a stand-alone service or coupled with drilling services.

Contractors Services - Cone Penetration Testing

Hagstrom Drilling provides cone penetration testing (CPT) services and are capable of providing this service as stand-alone or in combination with drilling services.  This is an in situ testing method that can be used to determine the geotechnical engineering properties of soils and delineating soil stratigraphy.

Our track based CPT rigs appeal to clients as they are able to access more rugged terrain, reduce the impact on the environment, are more manoeuvrable and need a smaller footprint area to work.  Our fleet includes a stand-alone Hyson 200 kN unit which is fitted to a purpose built skid base frame. This unit can be used for onshore and near-shore projects and is equipped with its own portable silenced power source for stand-alone use. It can also be configured to operate from our Marsh Buggy, Morooka or Jack up barges.

Geotechnical and Environmental Services comprise of the following:

  • Mechanical, CPT, CPTU, Seismic Cone Testing using automatic Seismic hammer as well as Piezometer installation;
  • Water samples and Marchetti DMT Dilatometer Testing;
  • Cones for environmental investigation, and;
  • Mostap 35 and 35ps Soil sampler and Conductivity.

These services are provided whilst adhering to the following standards:

  • According to International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGe)
  • Australian Standards AS1289.6.5.1.1999.
