TENSMEG - TENSION MEASURING GAUGE FOR 7-WIRE STRANDS

DESCRIPTION

The TENSMEG (tension measuring gauge) for monitoring strains in 7-wire strands, is an elongated spiral strain gauge comprised of a Teflon® coated resistive wire, extending between two hard, rubber end anchors.

The TENSMEG is an accurate and cost-effective means to examine load and strain in rock and soil anchors, and also in cable bolts used for rock support. Pre-stressed and post-tensioned concrete load and strain may also be effectively measured.

Due to its construction, the resistance wire is precisely inserted into the spiral grooves of the 7-wire strand used for anchors and therefore is well protected. The gauge has an excellent linear response, accuracy, and long term stability with water resistance capability. Specifications are unaffected when the TENSMEG is surrounded by cement grout or embedded in concrete structures.

The P3 Strain Gauge Readout can be used on the TENSMEG for readings.

QUICK SPECS

Excellent linear response and accuracy in a low cost system.


Simple to use and implement on the job site.


Sturdy design with Teflon® coated resistance wire provides ultimate reliability and durability.


Specifications or performance are not compromised when embedded in concrete or surrounded by cement grout.


Water resistant.

APPLICATIONS

Measure load and strain in 0.6” (15.2 mm), 7-wire strands.


Measure load and strain in the bond length of rock and solid anchors.


Measure load and strain in prestressed and post-tensioned concrete.


Measure load and strain in cable bolts used as ground support in underground and open pit mines.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability
