Fully Grouted Multi-Point Piezometer String

Brochure

DESCRIPTION

Fully grouted installation permits multiple piezometers to be simply and reliably installed in a single borehole. The piezometer string and grout pipe are placed in the borehole and cement-bentonite grout is pumped until the borehole is filled.

Multi-point Piezometer Strings allow for multiple Vibrating Wire Piezometers to be connected on a single cable. This facilitates the installation of fully grouted multiple piezometers. The single cable prevents vertical void channels. Tough polyurethane jacketed, Kevlar® (Kevlar® is a registered trademark of E.I. duPont de Nemours and Company or its affiliates) reinforced, non-stretch cable is employed to withstand the rigors of installation and is entirely water-blocked to minimize any leakage. No conductors are shared to maximize independent reliability of each sensor.

APPLICATIONS

  • Ideal when more than one piezometer reading is needed at various depths – at the same location.
  • Assessing performance and investigating stability of:
    – earth fill dams & embankments
    – slope stability
  • Monitoring of:
    – pressures behind retaining walls and diaphragm walls
    – pore pressures during fill or excavation
    – pore pressure in land reclamation applications
