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.
