Leslie St., Unit 15
Richmond Hill, ON L4B 4K3
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
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.
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)
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.
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.
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
UVIF Cone Penetration Testing (UVIF CPTu)
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.
