The Parvus 35 kN is a lightweight stand-alone CPT push frame for the deployment of mini CPT cones. The unit can be mounted to a CPT carrier or directly mounted to almost any surface through the use of the available frames. The unit is powered through a supplied, lightweight hydraulic power pack.
The range of stand-alone CPT pushers are designed to offer the highest degree of flexibility to allow you to undertake CPTs on even the most logistically challenging projects.
The Parvus 35 kN is the most lightweight and transportable system in the range, being easily hand portable as well as simple to operate. The Parvus can deploy 2 or 5 cm2 cones and is perfect for use in enclosed areas, thanks to the included electric powerpack.
When only very small pushing forces are required, for near surface investigations or in soft soils, or when using smaller diameter cones, 35 kN may be more than adequate. In those cases the Parvus is ideal. This pusher is provided with a ball clamp, which greatly simplifies the pushing and pulling of the CPT tubes.
