Is the thought of processing data keeping you from offering cone penetration testing (CPT)? Then this article is for you.
We understand adopting a new technology can seem intimidating. “Friction Ration (Fs/Qt)” or “SBT (Bq)(1990)” would cause most people to scratch their head or go running for the hills. That’s where we come in.
As former CPT service providers, we can tell you with confidence it has never been easier to collect and process CPT data. How easy is it? It’s just four simple steps.
Step 1. As you setup for a sounding test, you will open your laptop, click on the “CPTSND” icon, detect your equipment, and select which data channels you wish to view while conducting your CPT sounding. We can help you determine which channels show important information you should be monitoring during your soundings.
Step 2. Once you begin your CPT sounding, you will see the live data graphed for each channel you selected.
Step 3: After you conduct your CPT sounding, you will open Vertek’s data plotting software, ConePlot, and select the data you wish to see as listed format data or in a graphical format. The format and channels will be determined by your customer.
Step 4: Instantly email the CPT data files to your customer or print the data if you wish. If your customer is using third party software and needs the data in a different format such as .CSV, simply click “File,” “export,” and choose which format you’d like to export the data file to.
See, there’s nothing to it! For nearly four decades, we have trained drill rig operators and engineers around the world to successfully operate our CPT equipment and process CPT data. We have no doubt we can do the same for you. Plus, anytime you have a question, we are just a phone call away to offer free tech support and answer any questions, small or large.
