HYSON 100 kN-LW Light Weight CPT system


  • Highly portable
  • 100 kN single-cylinder pushing force
  • Easy to move and transport
  • Simple to operate

The HYSON 100 kN-LW Lightweight CPT push system is specially designed to perform in situ geotechnical soil investigations in locations inaccessible to other equipment, such as basements, back yards, swampy and overgrown land. Its main features are: light weight (only 85 kg) due to unique single cylinder design, small footprint (165 x 310 cm without anchors), versatility and reliability. This results in an easy to move and easy to operate Cone Penetration Test (CPT) unit.


In order to counter the reaction forces while testing, four rugged soil anchors are provided. In this way, a CPT test of 30 metres is feasible (actual depth depends on soil conditions). Anchors can be set manually or much more easily using the HYGAND, a hydraulic anchor setting device driven by the hydraulic power pack.

When working in confined spaces or when exhaust fumes/noise would be an issue, an electrical hydraulical power pack is offered as an option.
