Field Test Equipment

Our innovative products are used for soil investigation, compaction control, pavement rehabilitation, ground investigation, site characterisation, geotechnical drilling, and insitu non destructive testing (NDT) of asphalt and concrete.

Our products enable better field-testing outcomes compared to the current traditional methods (faster, more accurate, more representative, providing better insight, without errors, immediate GPS located results that are visually presented, more cost effective etc). Our specialisation is field test equipment with the following:

  • Focusing on measuring the fundamental design parameters in the field (comparing like with like)
  • High levels of repeatability
  • Non destructive field testing (overcoming damage and rectification costs and subsequent issues – think key hole surgery vs open heart surgery)
  • Equipment is instrumented (data is automatically and accurately recorded)
  • Results are machine produced (overcoming manual data recording, transposition or calculation errors and fictitious results)
  • GPS located (you know where every test is done)
  • Improved safety
  • Reduced time to test and get results (results are typically available real time so decisions can be made straight away)
  • Efficient operation (typically one person operation)

Insitu Test work closely with the test equipment manufacturers to service our clients effectively. Our role is to:

We also have a limited range of equipment available for rental or hire.

The test equipment manufacturers we are partnered with include:

Intelligent Compaction

Rollers fitted with Intelligent Compaction technology are used for granular soils, cohesive soils, aggregate bases and subbase and asphalt materials. You can find out more Intelligent Compaction here.

Intelligent Compaction allows for the direct link between pavement design parameters (modulus), compaction (stiffness / modulus indication) and testing (field and laboratory). Our expertise covers all these areas, which is unique in Australia and New Zealand.

To best support our clients with Intelligent Compaction advice and implementation, Insitu Test have partnered with world leaders in Intelligent Compaction, The Transtec Group (USA). Further, through our global network, we benefit from strong technical relationships with roller OEM’s, IC retrofit kit OEM’s and OEM in country distribution partners / vendors.
