Description

The Model 4875 Gekon Hydrostatic Profiler System is designed to measure heave/settlement at intervals along a semi-rigid access tube. The system consists of a probe which is physically dragged through a horizontal access tube. Using hydraulic fluid within the system the depth of the probe measured with respect to the reference reservoir. By comparing profiles taken at different times, the heave/settlement of earth structures can be determined.
