Joints – Crackmeters
Soil Instruments manufacture a range of crackmeters for measuring displacement across cracks and joints, with options for manual or remote logging of output, and vibrating wire jointmeters, designed specifically for use on concrete-faced dams.
Linear Potentiometer Crackmeter
The Linear Potentiometer Crackmeter is a robust, high resolution and accuracy instrument designed to measure displacements across cracks and joints in buildings, bridges, dams, pipelines etc. It can measure in expansion and contraction.
Mechanical Triaxial Jointmeter
The Mechanical Triaxial Jointmeter is designed to measure movement in three axes across any joint, be it a construction joint in concrete or a tension crack in rock.
Vibrating Wire Crackmeter
The Soil Instruments Vibrating Wire Crackmeter is designed to measure displacements across cracks and joints in buildings, bridges, dams, pipelines etc. It can measure in expansion and compression of joints.
Vibrating Wire Embedment Jointmeter
The Vibrating Wire Embedment Jointmeter is ideal for monitoring movement of joints in mass-concrete structures.
Vibrating Wire Perimetric Jointmeter
The Vibrating Wire Perimetric Jointmeter is designed to monitor three way displacement at joints and cracks. The reference anvil design allows the Vibrating Wire transducers to show independent movement in all directions, irrespective of each other.
Vibrating Wire Triaxial Jointmeter
Vibrating Wire Jointmeter is specially designed for measuring the relative displacement of two adjacent surfaces in three orthogonal directions.
