DESCRIPTION

The PW-ML multi-level piezometer consists of multiple piezometers connected to a single communication cable, which is in turn connected to the data acquisition system (SENSLOG) or readout (MB-3TL). 

A typical installation of the multi-level piezometer utilizes a direct grouting installation so that only the multi-level piezometer string and a grout injection tube are needed to complete the installation.  Once the grout has hardened, the piezometers are isolated from one another, allowing precise measurements of pore water pressure changes at various depths.

The multi-level piezometer allows the customer to define sensor spacing along the readout cable providing precise depth control based on site specific requirements. Junctions between each piezometer and the main cable are reinforced using epoxy resin for a waterproof and durable seal.
