compact, versatile, performance
Sometimes, the best things come in small packages, and that could certainly be said to be the case with Eijkelkamp’s compact CPT rig. Boasting performance features that you wouldn’t necessarily expect from a rig of this size, it’s proven to be an incredibly useful and versatile rig to have in our drilling company’s armoury. With an increased need for geotechnical site investigations to be carried out at a moment’s notice, having such a flexible and versatile rig as the Compact CPT – one which can be transported and set-up incredibly easy – is seriously useful.
It’s main benefits, aside from its diminutive frame, are that it’s incredibly easy to operate, easily transported and it has its own detachable CPT tower. This makes this particular rig ideal for restricted access drilling and drilling in urban areas where there may be restrictions on noise pollution and emissions. The Compact CPT can exert an impressive pushing force of 100Kn (which can be upgraded to 130Kn if required) for CPT work.
Health & safety at the forefront
The CPT compact rig also has health and safety at the forefront of its mind. Most drilling injuries come from hands-on work where personal clothing or parts of the body get caught on a rig’s mechanical component. With this rig, however, ball clamps are used mitigating the need for any clamps which are hand-operated. This significantly reduces the risk of personal injury on-site.
minimal environmental impact
This rig has a minimal environmental impact thanks to its caterpillar-mounted tracks. These tracks help to keep disturbance to the area surrounding the site investigation to an absolute minimum. All in all, this is a rig that punches well above its weight and delivers an exceptionally high drilling performance.
