Pictured below is Green Piling's latest fleet addition - the UK's first Soilmec SR35, equipped with NDT CFA instrumentation.
NDT instrumentation was installed recently on the latest rig to join Sheppard Piling's fleet - a Comacchio CH-300.
The installation continues NDT's role as instrumentation solutions provider to Barry and his team at Sheppard Piling.
We were delighted to supply CFA & Soil Mixing instrumentation for Keller's new Soilmec SF-55, the first rig of its kind worldwide.

Our Rotary Bored instrumentation system is being very well received by the piling industry.
The system uses standard NDT computer, data acquisition units and sensors. On multi-purpose rigs, the same system can be utilised for CFA, Soil Mixing, Rotary Bored, etc. This makes for a very versatile, economic and convenient addition to any rig.
The system provides the operator with a clear display showing:
As with all NDT instrumentation modules, the RBP system is fully 'Cloud' compatible which enables customers to access near real-time data, from any device with a web-browser and from any worldwide location.

Piling is well underway at Footscray Road for the West Gate Tunnel project in Melbourne.
Keller is using 3 of its Junttan PM25 driven piling rigs to install approximately 4,500 precast piles, each to a maximum of 30m depth.
Each rig is equipped with NDT instrumentation which provides the operator with real-time monitoring of pile depth, penetration rate, hammer blow count, hammer drop height, pile set, driving resistance and pile stresses.
As well as providing this vital information during the piling process, the on-board instrumentation means a 'Safety First' exclusion zone can be maintained around the rig whilst pile driving is taking place.
Keller staff can use any device with a web-browser to monitor the piling works in near real-time from any global location using NDT's groundbreaking 'NDTDataCloud' application.
We recently installed CFA / SFA instrumentation to a Klemm KR709-3G, operated by Murphy Ground Engineering.
The NDT monitor was fitted to a swivelling / articulating arm which also houses the primary rig controls. This provides ultimate convenience and allows operators to view and control the instrumentation from the angle which best suits their requirements.
If your requirements do not extend to a full instrumentation system, we can supply basic monitoring systems for your mini-rigs and similar plant.
Pictured below is a data logger fitted to a Klemm 709. The system has been configured to display hydraulic pressure, concrete injection pressure and mast inclination (dual-axis).
The logger can be configured for a wide range of sensor types and is suitable for any application where operators need to monitor parameters for which there is no pre-existing display on the rig.
Measured data are stored upon the unit and can be retrieved via the USB port on the front of the unit.
Please contact us for further details on the unit and the available options.
