A 21st Century DCP testing solution.
If your ready to upgrade your DCP testing operations, Vertek’s Automated Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (ADCP) is built for you.
Vertek’s ADCP speed, accuracy, and automation saves you time and money. The lift/drop mechanism delivers up to 40 blows per minute, more than double the average manual speed, and since data is automatically recorded it eliminates the need for a second person.
With applications for trucks, tracked-rigs, and trailers, there is no terrain you can’t reach to get your DCP testing done.
Read on to learn more about the most innovative DCP testing system on the market.
The ADCP can test layers beneath asphalt and concrete pavement by drilling a 1-inch diameter hole and a hydraulic core drill is an option on all ADCP platform configurations; no drilling is required to test unsurfaced pavements and soils. The ADCP can be mounted on a variety of platforms including trailers, light trucks, and all terrain vehicles.
The Data Acquisition System (DAS) provides on-site, real-time registration of blow count and depth. Windows based software simplifies data processing and analysis. DAS also provides automatic conversion of data into California Bearing Ratio (CBR), Limestone Bearing Ratio (LBR), sub grade modulus K, resilient modulus E, and Soil Support Value (SSV).
With numerous delivery applications custom built to your needs, the Vertek’s ADCP is the solution for anyone conducting DCP testing.

ADCP Truck System
The ADCP can be mounted on lightweight, commercially available pickup trucks such as the Ford F-550s. The ADCP utilizes a separate, self-contained power system to provide hydraulic power to the core drill.
Because of the platform’s lightweight and small size, it does not require special permits, licenses, or increased insurance costs. In most states and counties it can be licensed as a pickup truck.
This combination of small size and lightweight makes it easy to access tight spots while providing economical operation and maintenance. Our ADCP trucks have been a popular choice for agencies conducting highway and runway construction and stabilization.
ADCP ATV system
The ADCP can be mounted on a medium sized all terrain vehicle such as the ASV Scout pictured above. The ADCP utilizes the Scout’s electric and hydraulic systems for power and the platform’s high level of mobility allows you to perform testing in hard to access areas.
