Drilling Equipment specially designed for soil mechanics as models ANDALUCIA, CANARIAS plus both dynamic and static penetrometers such as model MAGERIT.
The ISSA-GM DRILLS ANDALUCIA and CANARIAS are mounted on truck, chassis, caterpillar tractor, etc, and are able to develop any soil mechanics work as DYNAMIC PENETRATION SPT TEST, DPH DYNAMIC PENETRATION AND DPSH, introduce SLIM WALL SAMPLER of continuous penetration (SHELBY) or THICK WALL SAMPLER by banging and drilling with TRIPLE ROTARY SAMPLERS, or SINGLE, DOUBLE or TRIPLE PIPE and also drill with HOLLOW OR BLIND HELIX.
Dynamic Penetration assays indicate the effort required to insert a cone in the ground and obtain values of resistance to penetrationwhich correspond to mechanical properties that are used in studies of Soil Mechanics and Foundations. It has application in accordance with the European standard EN ISO 22476-2: 2005 and International ISO 22476-2: 2005
The penetrometer Magerit III can display the following parameters:
Advance or linear penetration per stroke
Cadence and striking pair of lateral friction cone (Optional)
The dilatometer Marchetti DMT is a method for rapid, accurate and economical assessment "on site" of geotechnical parameters; it has been developed by Professor S. Marchetti and widely used in soil investigation worldwide.
The operating DMT method is standardized by ASTM and published in Geot. Testing Journal in June 1986.
Essentially the test consists of introducing into the blade of DMT by hydraulic or dynamic thrust, stopping at intervals of 150 mm depth.
At each stop, the operator, acting on the control box, and with the aid of pressurized gas starts a process of expansion of the membrane housed in the blade steel DMT, resulting in four readings in a less than 2 minutes.
The data are then analyzed by hand or by a computer program following the calculation procedures developed by Marchetti and Schmertmann described in the user manual supplied with the equipment.
The results are displayed on the computer screen, and can be incorporated directly into the geotechnical report.
Rigs to run micropiles, drains, pipes, Trial pit, even under the surface, and drilling machines for concrete, wall partitions and floors.

Drilling for micropiles and subsurface
The Canarias and Andalucia drills are versatile because they can work with tricones, hammer bit, 3-wing bit, carbide and diamond bits. Its use is particularly suitable for micropiles, Foundations, Civil Engineering, Drains, Pipes amd Trial pit.
The Cibeles 1850 is a highly versatile drills, used for: water wells, mining and large diameter holes in foundations in addition to civil engineering. It can work with air or mud, compressor or injection pump. All knobs and controls are hydraulic and are located in a control panel close to the operator, ensuring a safe and fatigue-free operation. Both the speed of the head and winch elevation can vary in a wide range. Automatically and from the control panel it is possible to control the weight on the cutting tool (tricone, 3-wing bit or bit) and suspend, when necessary, part of the weight.
We commercialize a variety of bits in all the standard diameters. The manufacturing process envolve cupellation furnace which ensure durability. In the carbide, the cuplellation helps the copper to act as a pad while in the diamond ones it homogenize the matrix.
This range extends from the rods with connections welded fiction, caising clamp, shock absorbers, lifting hooks, reamer, centering, hole openers, stabilizers, hollow and solid augers, pipe cutters, jaws and claws to head rotation and brakes, column for penetration testing DPSH, SPT, CPT.
