The Titan 650 is designed specifically for foundation testing and can be used for any type of pile, anchor or bearing test. It complies with the new third-edition of the ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls.

The machine can measure precise increments of load and pile displacement with operatives safely removed from the high-risk environment. Engineers can view live data remotely and amend the test in the field.

Rory O’Rourke, CEO of the Datum Group and lead at Atlas Pile Testing Systems, said: “The Titan 650 is a long overdue development for the foundation testing industry, setting unparalleled standards in safety, accuracy and control. It has the capacity to deliver precise loads for testing soil nails or large scale static load tests, as well as having a wireless control systems that facilitates rapid set up and for precise control.”

 

 

Live test data can be viewed using a smartphone, laptop or PC, from any location worldwide via an encrypted connection, with the ‘Test Controller’ retaining control to pause or customise the test recipe at any time.
