MAGNETIC SETTLEMENT SYSTEMS

DESCRIPTION

RST Instruments Magnetic Settlement Systems are available in 3 main configurations which monitor either heave or settlement in soil and rock. All are designed to be simple, accurate, and provide long term reliability at a low cost.

All 3 configurations listed below use an RST Reed Switch Probe to provide a reading in the magnetic zones allocated along the length of the borehole. Installations are typically vertical, however, horizontal applications may be accommodated utilizing installation rods to insert the probe.

1) MAGNETIC SETTLEMENT SYSTEM
WITH FLUSH THREADED PVC PIPE

Installation as a single purpose device to monitor settlement/heave only.

2) MAGNETIC SETTLEMENT SYSTEM
WITH INCLINOMETER CASING

Installed in conjunction with RST Flush-coupled Inclinometer Casing to obtain both vertical and horizontal deformation data from a single installation. If larger amounts of settlement/heave are anticipated, this configuration may also incorporate a Corrugated Sleeving with Settlement Magnetic Rings which will accommodate RST’s Inclinometer Casing of 70 mm (2.75”) and 85 mm (3.34”) OD sizes.

3) MAGNETIC SETTLEMENT SYSTEM
WITH 1.5” CORRUGATED PIPE

A more inclusive system which contains pre-installed magnets along a 1.5” ID corrugated pipe. This corrugated configuration is also more ideal for situations where larger amounts of settlement/heave are anticipated.

QUICK SPECS

Simple, yet accurate principle of operation.


Low cost.


High performance ceramic magnets.


Flush OD, O-ring sealed telescopic sections for access tube or inclinometer casing.


High accuracy, non-stretch tape.


Simple, mechanically released spider magnets without the necessity for pneumatic cutters.


Compatible with RST inclinometer casing.


Integral electrical cable and survey chain.

APPLICATIONS

Monitor settlement or heave associated with construction, mining, and tunneling.


When used around inclinometer casing, deformation in the third axis can be monitored.


Subsidence monitoring.


Displacement of retaining walls, piers, and abutments.


Bottom heave of excavations.


Relaxations of rock around tunnel openings.


Foundation settlement monitoring.


Embankments and fills.

BENEFITS

Increase Safety


Increase Productivity
