The inclinometer casing tubes are designed to accommodate all commercially available inclinometers. They provide access and precise orientation for both wheel-mounted and fixed inclinometers. They are primarily used to monitor the stability of embankments, dikes slopes, rock cuts, foundations, excavation walls, piles, coffer dams, slope areas, etc.
The tubes and sturdy couplings are self-aligning and pop-riveted together, making assembly quick and easy. The joints are waterproofed using either glue or sealing tape. The tube has four wheel grooves spaced at 90° intervals for 2 inclinometer orientations, and is manufactured from either impact-resistant PVC or ABS ensuring a lightweight, strong, environmentally resistant casing with grooves free from spiralling assuring accuracy guidance resulting in high quality measurements.
The tubes come in lengths of 3 meters each and are available in 4 different outer diameter, i.e. 55 mm (2.16 inch), 60mm (2.36 inch) and 70 mm (2.75 inch). The design and material are extra strong to withstand the external forces of grouting or earth pressures.
The inclinometer casing tube is specially designed for inclinometer measurements. They combine 3 functions:
- They provide access for the inclinometer allowing it to perform subsurface measurements
- They control the orientation of the inclinometer via its internal grooves
- They conform themselves to the movement of the surrounding ground
When you buy inclinometer casing tubes it is important to consider the casing diameter and the groove shape.
