Good day readers. We are so excited to share with all of you that we have managed to complete another challenging container customization project successfully this month. In our previous post we have mentioned that we have built three portable offshore geo-laboratory; however, our new portable offshore geo-laboratory is the largest we have ever built. Imagine not one, not two, not three but four 40ft container joined together to form the largest portable offshore geo-laboratory in Singapore (maybe in Asia too).

This time, the lab is equipped with state of the art pantry that can accommodate eight people, a prayer room, a small meeting area and an outdoor working covered area. Some of you have been asking, what tests that these labs can do. Well, below are some tests that our client can do for you:

Routine Testing – Classification and Index Tests

Visual Classification & trimming of samples – 1 Extruder c/w Hydraulic Power Pack

Moisture Content / Density test – 3 Ovens, 3 Electronic Weighing Balances

Atterberg Limts – 1 Cone Penetrometer, 1 Casagrande

Particle Size Distribution by Sieve and Hydrometer – 1 Sieve Shaker c/w set of sieves, 22 Hydrometer cylinders

Maximum and Minimum Density – 2 Vibratory Hammers

Carbonate Content -1 chamber c/w pressure gage

Specific Gravity – 15 Volumetric flasks

Strength Tests – Soil

Direct Shear – 2 Direct Shear Machines

Triaxial Test UU, CIU, CID, Saturated Unconsolidated Undrained Triaxial - 3 triaxial machines connected to Winhost Data Logger

Shear Vane Testing -1 Shear Vane Equipment

Fall Cone Test – 1 Fall Cone Equipment

Torvane Test – 1 Torvane Equipment

Torshear Test – 1 Torshear Equipment

Advanced Static and Dynamic Testing

Triaxial CAU/CAD, CKoU, CKoD (compression/extension), CRS Consolidation - 4 GDS Computer-controlled Triaxial Automated System (GDSTAS)

Cyclic Triaxial c/w Bender Element – 1 GDS 5Hz Electromechanical Dynamic Triaxial Testing System (DYNTTS)

Static/Cyclic Simple Shear c/w Bender Element - 2 Electromechanical Dynamic Cyclic Simple Shear (EMDCSS)

Resonant Column – 1 Resonant Column Apparatus (RCA)

Rock Tests

Compressive Strength - 1 Uniaxial Compression on Rock machine

Point Load - 1 Uniaxial Compression on Rock machine

Brazilian Tensile Strength - 1 Uniaxial Compression on Rock machine

Slake Durability -   1 Slake Durability Apparatus

Other Tests

Oedometer Test – consolidation and swelling tests - 10 Oedometers connected to Winhost Data Logger

Electrical Resistivity (Wenner Probe Method) – 1

In-situ  Apparent Resistvity – 1

In-situ  Density

Permeability Testing – 1 Manometer Board

Offshore (Onboard vessel)

Extrusion and Visual Classification – 1 sample Extruder c/w Hydraulic Power Pack

Moisture content and Density – 1 Oven & 2 Triple-beam Weighing Balances

Torvane – 3

Lab Vane – 1

Fall Cone – 1

Carbonate Content – 1 Chamber c/w Pressure Gage

Triaxial UU, CIU, CID, CAU, CAD, CKoU compression/extension, CRS consolidation – 2 Computer-controlled GDS Triaxial Automated System (GDSTAS)

Onshore Testing

If the container is sited onshore, in addition to the range of tests mentioned for offshore testing, other tests that can be included;

Sieve analysis – 1 Sieve Shaker c/w set of sieves

Hydrometer – 6 Hydrometer cylinders

Specific Gravity – 3 Volumetric Flasks

Atterberg Limits – 1 Casagrande or Cone Penetrometer

Oedometer Consolidation – 2 Oedometer machines connected to Winhost Data Logger

All in all we are very proud of our own men. A company isn’t a company without its employees. Way a go guys!
