Soil-rock Interface Pressure Cell

This interface pressure cell is used to measure pressure between soil and rock or concrete interfaces. The pressure cell is designed similarly to other units, except a thicker diaphragm on rock/concrete side of the pressure pad, which minimises point-loading effects.


Range (MPa) 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.5, 5.0,10.0, specify
Accuracy ± 0.5 % fs standard | ± 0.1 % fs optional
Over range limit 150 % fs of range
Temperature limit -20° to 80°C
Thermistor YSI 44005 or equivalent
Pressure pad sizes l x b (mm) 200 mm Φ x 7 mm thick (EPS-30V-S/EPS-30V-C) 200 mm Φ x 10 mm thick (EPS-30V-I)
*Calibrated accuracy of pressure sensor
