ConeTec

9033 Leslie St., Unit 15
Richmond Hill, ON L4B 4K3

ConeTec is an international site investigation company with offices in the United States and Canada. ConeTec specializes in the design and use of in-situ soil testing equipment worldwide.

ConeTec designs, builds and operates the most advanced in-situ testing equipment available including a wide range of cone penetration testing (CPT) probes, sampling systems, seismic equipment, geophysical tools and a fleet of purpose built in-situ testing vehicles, drill rigs, and offshore systems.

All field investigations are performed by specially trained personnel and supported by experienced site investigation professionals in order to provide the highest quality site investigation.

Piezo Cone Penetration Testing (CPTu)
The electric piezocone (CPTu) is the premier soil logging tool. The CPTu provides a rapid, reliable and economic means of determining soil stratigraphy, relative density, strength and equilibrium groundwater pressures.

ConeTec offers a choice of cones with varying tip (qc) capacities, friction sleeves (fs) and pore pressure transducers (U). Pore pressure can be measured at one of 2 locations, either on the face (U1) of the cone tip or behind the cone tip (U2). Pore pressure dissipation data is recorded automatically during pauses in penetration.

All data is displayed in real time, facilitating the on site decision making process. Field data reduction, plotting and CPT interpretation can be carried out upon request.

UVIF Cone Penetration Testing (UVIF CPTu)

The amalgamation of the ultra violet induced fluorescence (UVIF) module and the cone penetrometer with pore pressure measurement (CPTU) produces a powerful site characterization tool for geo-environmental site investigations.

The UVIF module has high energy ultra violet light directed through a sapphire window into the soil and groundwater being penetrated. The ultra violet light causes fluorescence of hydrocarbon contaminants contained within the soil and groundwater. The intensity of the fluorescence is detected downhole in the UVIF module. As the UVIF module collects information on hydrocarbon contaminant characteristics, the CPTU characterizes the ground in terms of soil type, soil permeability, soil strength and phreatic surface.
