Solutions Oil & Gas, Energy, Mining Pipeline Strain Monitoring
The weldable full-bridge strain gauge is a basic long-term solution for pipeline strain monitoring applications. Foil gauges are mounted to stainless steel shim in a full bridge orientation and then encased in an IP68 mould. Cables are routed to a central location where strain gauge conditioners and data acquisition equipment is housed. The grouping of resistance foil gauges which are mounted at each of the desired locations will make up a “Station.” The station will be connected to the data collection unit located at a distance of up to 1km away.
