Load - Pressure

  • Vibrating Wire Load Cell

    Vibrating Wire Load Cells are ideally suited for measuring loads in rock bolts, cable anchors and tendons, structural beams, piles, loads between tunnel supports and loads in pull-out tests on trial anchors.

  • Strain Gauge Load Cell

    Strain Gauge Load Cells are ideally suited for measuring loads in rock bolts, cable anchors and tendons, structural beams, piles, loads between tunnel supports and loads in pull-out tests on trial anchors. 

  • Vibrating Wire Pressure Cell

    Vibrating Wire Pressure Cells measure total stresses in soils and is a combination of effective stress and pore-water pressures. They are normally used to validate design assumptions and to give adequate warning of soil pressures in excess of those designed to be exerted by a structure.

  • Vibrating Wire Push-In Pressure Cell

    The Vibrating Wire Push-In Pressure Cell is normally installed in vertical boreholes and measures total horizontal stresses. They are often installed in stiff clay behind and in front of retaining walls, in soft puddle clay cores of old embankment dams and in glacial till adjacent to sea cliffs.

  • Vibrating Wire Concrete Stress Cell

    The Vibrating Wire Concrete Stress Cell is used for measuring total stresses in tunneling process, mass concreting and rock walls in underground works.
