Introducing the latest addition to the IGS Fleet of custom designed and built CPT Testing Rigs

We are very pleased to announce our new go-almost-anywhere rig “Elsie”. This is a smart, capable and beautiful rig, named appropriately after Mick’s daughter.

Elsie is a 150kN machine capable of pushing harder, up to 250kN, if ballasted. She has the ability to push tests at three different controlled speeds: (i) the industry-standard 20mm/sec, but also (ii) 2mm/sec and (iii) 200mm/sec.

This capability is being built into most of IGS’s new rigs, to offer possibilities to clients who may want that capability.

Wide rubber tracks provide a ground contact pressure of around 25kPa.

Elsie has full remote control, including to its recovery winch, a facility that is very useful in some situations; another feature being built into most new IGS rigs.

Elsie loaded and ready to go…
