Vibrating Wire Piezometer


Vibrating Wire Piezometer

The Vibrating Wire Piezometer (VWP) is the industry standard in pore pressure monitoring. Constructed from high-quality 316 stainless steel, the Vibrating Wire Piezometer is capable of performing with long cable runs with an operation longevity for many years. More reliable than a strain-gauge or 4-20 mA piezometer, the VWP can be used for static water level measurement, tailings dam monitoring, mine dewatering, aquifer monitoring and many other applications. The HMA Geotechnical Vibrating Wire Piezometer is compatible with most commercially available readouts and dataloggers.
