Settlement and Displacement
Settlement measurements in embankments.
The ST120 plate setter has been designed to measure subsidence in embankments through a topographic measurement. The instrument consists of: a galvanized steel 50x50cm plate as an anchor, a galvanized steel pipe fixed on the plate, an anti-friction corrugated pipe and a measuring point installed on the head of the steel pipe. The subsidence of the underlying ground will be topographically detected by an identical subsidence of the measurement point at the top of the pipe. In addition, the bed setter is supplied with caps and centering devices in order to ensure the maximum effectiveness of the anti-friction tube and consequently greater measurement accuracy. The settlement column can be extended later as the height of the embankment increases.
Upon request, SIM STRUMENTI provides a displacement sensor with the relative installation kit as an alternative to topographic readings.
Each sensor comes with a test certificate which certifies the results of the test performed and the electromechanical characteristics of the same.
