Lankelma’s open day on 14 July gave attendees the opportunity to get ‘up close and personal’ with the latest CPT techniques.
Lankelma won the Equipment Innovation category at this year’s Ground Engineering Awards, recognising its work in developing better ways to gather high quality geotechnical data from Cone Penetration Testing for engineering design.
We have enhanced our popular video cone to enable faster detection of fuel and oil ground contamination. The new cone features UV-emitting LEDs that can detect cold light emission luminescence from fuels and oils, providing a more accurate picture of the ground in real-time. “Many industrial oils and fuels visibly emit fluorescence under ultra-violet conditions,” explained Lankelma […]
Lankelma’s road-rail CPT truck and its excavator-mounted CPT rig have been working through the night for the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme. The Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), being delivered by Network Rail, involves modernisation and upgrades of key junctions, plus electrification of the rail network, including the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow and to […]
Lankelma’s combination magnetometer cone has once again proved its worth on an investigation in Avonmouth. Lankelma, working for WML Consulting, carried out four CPTs to 22m – three inside a building – to gather geotechnical information and to demonstrate the site was clear of buried ferrous objects. “The combination magnetometer cone incorporates a mag detecting […]
Lankelma is helping the University of Hertfordshire meet its ambitious building plans. Lankelma’s UK15 track-truck and its UK17 wheeled rig carried out 90 piezocone CPTs and 30 dissipation tests through sands and silts in two visits to the University earlier this year. The University’s 2020 estates vision will see upgrading of existing facilities, plus construction […]
