Heavy Duty Vibrating Wire Piezometer
The Heavy Duty Vibrating Wire Piezometer accurately measures pore water pressures in fully or partially saturated soil. The heavy duty design prevents case stresses from aﬀecting readings in extreme installations (dams and high ground stresses). The transducer is ﬁtted with either a low air entry sintered steel or a high air entry ceramic ﬁlter. A cone shaped nose piece is available for push in installations. The transducer is made from high quality 316 grade stainless steel and designed for pressure ranges from -50 to 15,000 kPa. The Heavy Duty Vibrating Wire Piezometer incorporates an over voltage surge arrestor to oﬀer protection from an indirect lightning strike. The piezometer is also available with a thermistor for temperature monitoring.
