Borehole Pressure Cell

Borehole Pressure Cell

For strain measurement in both elastic and viscoelastic rock.

Cells are available in two basic configurations:

a miniature flatjack version
a cylindrical pressure cell.
Both involve stainless or copper plates welded together at the edges. The space between is filled with fluid. Once the cell is grouted in the borehole, the fluid is pressurised. Stress changes can then be determined by the corresponding change in hydraulic pressure.


-Reliable long-term performance & low cost
-Stainless or copper construction
-Suitable for demanding environments
-Remote readout available
-Datalogger compatible
