Inclinometer Standard

A new standard has been published on inclinometer measurements. This is the third in a series of standards that are the work of the ISO TC182 WG2 committee. The first two standards were on General Rules and Extensometers. The Working Group is currently drafting new standards on piezometers and total pressure cells. You can purchase the inclinometer standard from BSI  at the following URL:

Calibrating inclinometer probes

Mohamed (Instrumentation Engineer at GeO) being trained in how to calibrate an inclinometer probe using our UKAS certified rotary table.

All of our inclinometer probes are examined and cleaned after every site visit. They are put through a static tube test every week, to track the check-sums under repeatable conditions. This identifies any changes, such as worn bearings, at an early stage. They are checked using our rotary table every three months and a new calibration certificate is issued if any adjustments are done. A full calibration is carried out every 12 months.

We believe this process helps us deliver high quality inclinometer measurements in piles, retaining walls and slopes. Contact us if you want to hear more about how we do this.

Simple just became Easy

SAAV is the newest and most advanced ShapeArray model.

_SAAV_reelclippedWeb.png

Inspired by direct feedback from customers, SAAV uses a new, unique, off-the-reel cyclical installation system, which inserts the ShapeArray in a zigzag pattern into casings from 47 mm to 100 mm in diameter. The SAAV is then locked into place with a Spring Box assembly.

SAAV is ideal for using in existing conventional inclinometer casings or for new installations into smooth casings such as reservation tubes in piles and diaphragm walls.

SAAV is available with 500 mm long segments and in total lengths of up to 150 metres.
