TELESCOPIC INCLINOMETER CASING

DESCRIPTION

Telescopic Inclinometer Casing is mainly used in embankments that are gradually raised, such as embankment dams and tailing dams, and where the casing will be subject (either locally or along its full length) to large amounts of settlement, typically more than 1%.

The Telescopic Inclinometer Casing is not recommended for use in boreholes where the entire string of casing sections is lowered all at once. For this latter situation, standard inclinometer casing (either Snap Seal or Glue & Snap) with telescopic sections should be preferred.

The internal guide grooves for the inclinometer probe are precision machined and provide effective control of spiral, straightness, groove shape, and depth. Alignment is maintained by screws in the casing and longitudinal slots in the couplings. The couplings accommodate up to 150mm (6 in.) of compression or extension. Optional settlement flanges can also be attached to each casing section when it is installed incrementally in embankments.

APPLICATIONS

Embankment settlement


Landslide and slope stability


Dam stability


Subsidence control


Pilings


Bridge pier, abutments deflection


Areas next to large excavations

QUICK SPECS

High precision, machined guide grooves.


Meets or exceeds all applicable standards.


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


Low temperature, impact and corrosion resistant ABS plastic.


Easy assembly.

BENEFITS

High Reliability


Immediate Delivery


Custom Options (See Brochure)
