FT570 Marine seafloor nearshore and offshore CPT system

Marine seafloor CPT

The Feritech FT570 seafloor CPT system shows the way for the latest generation CPT technology. Simple to use, quick to mobilise with advanced features and class leading results. This flexible system can be deployed from a vessel or platform and be configured with a thrust capacity from 50kN up to 250kN.

The advanced chain drive system can accommodate 25mm, 36mm and 45mm rods ensuring the system is truly flexible. Standing by our modular philosophy seen on our other equipment the CPT drive units are no acceptation. They have been designed from the ground up to offer the user maximum flexibility. The 250kN unit can be configured with a dead weight of between 5 and 27 tonnes using the modular ballast allowing it to be used on small vessels or large vessel alike. The same CPT drive unit can be put into an integrated frame with our vibrocorer and heat flow probe to allow a single deployment and mobilisation for all three sampling tools.

  • All calibration, setup and service history data is stored within the cone electronically
  • Built in magnetometers for metallic or UXO (unexploded ordnance) detection
  • Bi-directional recording capability
  • 5cm2 10cm2 15cm2 sizes available
  • Marine grade stainless steel construction
  • Dual axis tilt, pore pressure, magnetic, friction and axial load ratiometric output sensors
