Standard Inclinometer Casing is specially designed for inclinometer systems and is typically installed in boreholes. However, its versatility renders it suitable for use in landfills, cast to concrete or attached to structures. It is designed to deflect with the ground, materials or structural movement and provide inclination information over a long period of time.
The casing together with inclinometer probe system are ideal for measuring lateral ground movements in projects such as landslides, slope stability, slurry walls, dams, tunnels, embankments, tank foundations, landfills, bridge piers, abutments, etc. The assembly is simple and allows the user to obtain highly accurate inclinometer data in short and long term monitoring.
This economical inclinometer casing is manufactured from ABS plastic utilizing extrusion technique which ensures consistently precise and smooth keyways formed at 90 degrees to the internal casing surface. The ABS plastic has unique properties which is flexible and maintains its shape over a wide range of temperature and will not be affected by long term contact with soils, ground water or grouts.
The casing is assembled using couplings, rivets and sealing tape which will ensure strong joints. Telescopic sections are provided for situations where large amounts of settlement or heave are anticipated.
Inclinometer systems are used to measure lateral movement in the ground or in a structure. They are useful for determining the depth, direction, magnitude, and also rate of movement.
Measurements of recorded movement are used to check that the deflections are within the design assumptions. Continue monitoring to establish any long term effects after construction has finished.
Inclinometer casing is used in boreholes, embedded in fill material, cast into concrete or attached to structures for the following typical applications:
