CARLSON PORE PRESSURE CELLS

DESCRIPTION

Water pressure in the pores of a granular material like soil reduces the internal friction and therefore the stability. This pore pressure can be measured by a device which separates the water pressure from the intergranular pressure. In the Carlson Pore Pressure Cell, the water pressure is admitted to an internal diaphragm through a porous disc which holds back the soil or other granular material. The deflection of the internal diaphragm is measured with the same sensing element as is used in the stress meters. For a pore pressure cell to be fully satisfactory, it must permit measurement with a minimum of water movement. Both of these requirements are met by the Carlson Pore Pressure Cell.

QUICK SPECS

Zero displacement.


Integral temperature measurement.


50 year track record and proven Carlson design.

APPLICATIONS

Measurement of pore water pressure in soils.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability
