Key Features
The WISON-APB-Classic is capable of performing cone penetration tests (CPTs) and taking soil samples at depths up to 550 m (water depth + drilling depth). It requires a drill string with an inner diameter of at least 101.6 mm (4") and a drill tower clearance of 11 m. The WISON-APB 100 version has a pushing capacity of 100kN and is capable to performing tests with a 1m and 3m stroke length. The WISON-APB 100 comes with an electric winch that is self-tensioning for heave compensation. The winch allows the tool to travel at a maximum speed of 2 m/s inside the drill string.
