Limited Access Solutions 

Crux offers a fleet of specialty equipment, from helicopter portable micropile drills to custom barge systems. Our experienced team and in-house fabrication capabilities enable us to tailor this equipment to the specifics of the project, and successfully complete our work in the most challenging conditions.

Our customized geotechnical exploration drills can be transported by track rig, truck, helicopter, or crane. They are able to access confined spaces, steep slopes, and environmentally sensitive areas, and have the capabilities to drill at any angle. 

Our fleet of specialized Crux-Beretta Spin Drills can be track mounted or set on custom leveling platforms. Lightweight and componentized, they can be easily transported by crane or helicopter, and adjust to allow for low overhead clearance as well as tight spaces in general.

Geophysics + Downhole Imaging

Crux offers a fleet of specialty equipment, from helicopter portable micropile drills to custom barge systems. Our experienced team and in-house fabrication capabilities enable us to tailor this equipment to the specifics of the project, and successfully complete our work in the most challenging conditions.

Crux has the capability to perform both seismic and resistivity surveys for a variety of project needs, allowing for efficient identification of depth to rock or depth to more resistive soil horizons up to 150’ beneath the surface. A 2-Dimensional cross section is produced for each area of interest as well as distance over time graphs to accurately apply a FPS velocity designation to the subsurface materials allowing the client to be able to plan equipment and manhours accordingly pre construction. With resistivity, Crux is able to identify groundwater and resistive layers allowing for pre-construction grounding designs to be developed more accurately.

Crux’s customized optical/acoustical televiewers provide a continuous, detailed and oriented image of the borehole wall. Subsequent interpretation and analysis of this image provides information on dip azimuth and dip magnitude for all identified planar features. The system is applicable in vertical, horizontal, and inclined boreholes, and can accommodate additional downhole surveys including caliper, natural gamma, temperature, and resistivity.
