INCLINOMETER CASING

DESCRIPTION

RST's Inclinometer Casing is engineered to be assembled quickly and accurately for long and short term monitoring in the most adverse field conditions. RST Inclinometer Casing is suited to be installed in boreholes, embankments, piles, set into concrete, or attached to structures. It's compatible with all commercially available inclinometer probes, including RST's Digital MEMS Inclinometer Probe. RST manufactures inclinometer casing with precision CNC technology.

The casing serves as an access tube to guide a MEMS-based inclinometer probe in the two orthogonal directions of measurement. Changes in the output of the probe caused by the deformation of the casing is proportional to the sine of the angle of inclination of the long sensor axis from vertical. These displacements are incrementally summed to provide profiles of total displacement versus depth.

RST Instruments manufactures two sizes of inclinometer casing in either "Snap Seal" or "Glue + Snap" coupling styles. Both provide alignment and displacement measurements in numerous applications.

RST casing is manufactured from non-recycled virgin ABS resin. While more costly than common PVC resin, ABS is preferred due to superior flexibility, stability, and low temperature impact resistance. Using recycled resin degrades the performance of the casing.

APPLICATIONS

Pilings


Landslides and slope stability


Subsidence control


Under large storage tanks


Embankment and dam stability


Bridge pier, abutments deflection


Areas next to large excavations

QUICK SPECS

High precision, machined guide grooves.


Low spiral ≤ 0.005 Rad/3m (≤ 0.3 deg./10 feet).


Meets or exceeds all applicable standards.


Compatible with all commercial probe types and in-place inclinometer sensors.


Self aligning, water, and grout tight couplings.


Integral coupling reduces assembly induced spiral by 50% over conventional separate coupling methods.


Easy assembly.


70mm (2.75 inch) and 85mm (3.34 inch) OD sizes.


Compatible with inductance, reed switch, magnetic, or mechanical settlement monitoring devices.


Snap Seal and Glue + Snap integral flush couplings that minimize field installation time.


Low temperature, impact, and corrosion resistant ABS plastic.


External key provides visual and tactile confirmation of proper installation.


View brochure for complete specifications.

BENEFITS

High Reliability


Immediate Delivery


Custom Options (See Brochure)
