Atlas Pile Testing Systems has officially launched the next product in its range of Titan Pile Testing Systems – the Titan 250 – to Cementation Skanska, at Atlas’s Head Office in Bury today (13 July 2018).
The Titan 250 is a fully automated and unmanned static load testing system for the piling industry, which follows on from the Titan 650 Pile Testing System, which was launched in Summer 2017 and has quickly set the standard for safe, accurate and controlled pile testing.
More compact than the Titan 650, the Titan 250 is fully compliant with the new third-edition of the ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls, the Titan 250 has a number of key features including; safety (removing operatives from a high risk environment); accuracy (precise increments of load and pile displacement measurements); transparency (designers can view live data and amend the test in the field, remotely); expediency (a test controller can be located anywhere in the world); and efficiency (Tests are completed quicker and more directly).
The Titan 250 builds on more than 20-years of piling sector experience, utilising the latest innovations and technology to present a fast, reliable, smart and safe pile testing system that offers many advantages over existing pile testing methods.
Speaking about the launch of the Titan 250 Rory O’Rourke, CEO of The Datum Group and lead at Atlas Pile Testing Systems said: “The Titan 250 is the next in the Titan range, launched as a result of listening to industry and client feedback. Like the Titan 650, only more compact, the Titan 250 has the capacity to deliver precise loads for testing soil nails and large scale static load tests, as well as having a user-friendly control system that facilitates ease of use.”
Speaking about the Titan 250, Anthony Fisher, Testing and Monitoring Manager, Cementation Skanksa said: “The Titan 250 is an excellent addition to our pile testing fleet. The team at Datum has worked tirelessly to keep developing the product, listened carefully to our feedback and provided excellent support. I am looking forward to deploying it on geotechnical projects around the UK in the coming months.”
