VIDEO - New MSPT Massenza: a specific tool for geotechnics
Small size, big performance!
One of the most amazing announcements of 2021 is the MSPT: a specific tool for soil testing and sampling within the first 20m, small in size but with the highest versatility.
The Massenza MSPT is manually manoeuvred and carried on two balloon wheels, operating a mechanical SPT drop weight. The drop weight can be modified by removing or adding weights to drive different dynamic probing methods: DPL, DPM, DPH and, of course, SPT.
The basic version is run by a gasoline engine, powering the mast chain with a centrifugal clutch. Rod extraction can be done with a manual rod puller offering up to 6t of extraction force. The MSPT comes on rubber-wheels, with a mast foldable for transport and a three-legged foot for stability on the job site.
Besides the gasoline version, Massenza offers the MSPT with a hydraulic power pack, which means rods extraction can be done by a hydraulic extraction jack offering up to 15t extraction force.
The MSPT is the perfect low-cost solution for a broad range of soil testing methods. Due to the low weight and the modular set-up, it is also applicable for limited access drilling and working in closed rooms. The entire set-up can be transported in a small van or trailer giving the operator a great deal of flexibility.
