Pile rig instrumentation is used for CFA piles, displacement columns and controlled stiffiness cloumns, since these techniques do not allow inspection of an open hole to verify the soil parameters. Piling Contractors operates two different instrumentation systems, depending on the rig type and manufacturer. These instrumentation systems provide critical information to ensure that piles are soundly constructed.
Our Bauer drillring rigs use the Bauer "B-tronic" system
This is pre-installed in all Bauer rigs – CFA, CSC, displacement and conventional bored piles can be monitored using a very user friendly touch screen
Monitoring data can be displayed in “time” or “depth” profile
Hydraulic pressure and engine data from the drill rig are monitored
Remote data transfer to an office and real time monitoring from the office are possible
An automatic "drill assistant" and "concrete assistant" can be activated to alert when the equipment moves outside pre set operatinmg parameters
Concrete volume during placement is recorded in 200mm intervals.
One external sensor attached to the top of the mast (concrete pressure), all other sensors integrated into the rig
Our other drilling rigs use the Jean Lutz system which monitors CFA piles CSC's and displacement columns.
Measures piling related information and data
Remote data transfer to office and real time monitoring from the office are possible
Monitoring data is displayed in depth profile
Some external sensors have to be installed to the piling rigs
