New pile testing system delivered

titan 650 system ndt atlas approved

Atlas Pile Testing Systems has sold the first of its fully automated and unmanned static load testing system to NDT Services.

NDT has already put the Titan 650 pile testing equipment into action.

According to Atlas, the key benefits of the system are improvement in safety by removing operatives from a high risk environment; better accuracy with precise increments of load and pile displacement measurements and greater data availability with remote access.

Atlas CEO Rory O’Rourke said: “Interest in the new Titan 650 has been unprecedented both in the UK and overseas, with export having been secured to China. However, I am delighted that NDT Services has become the first customer to take delivery. In fact, this is just the first of several that NDT Systems has ordered.

“It’s [Titan 650] been long in development and now sets the standards for safety, accuracy and control, having the capacity to deliver precise loads for testing in a range of applications from soil nails to large diameter pile foundations, as well as having a wireless control system that facilitates rapid set up and precise control.”

According to NDT director John Purser, the benefits of the system are immediate. “Advancement in load application, autonomous control, viewing of test performance and above all test safety marked a significant advancement in static pile test methodology,” he said.
