Test & Measurement

 

Understanding the properties, movements and limitation of materials is vital to design and construction to ensure a fit for purpose end product. Using Solartron Metrology's sensors and Orbit® Networking system (which can integrate third party sensors), qualities such as displacement, stretch, strain, pressure and temperature can be measured and recorded.

Testing for deformation of a structure

 

The most common types of sensor used to test for deformation of a structure is Absolute Displacement sensors. Both can be brought together using Orbit®, Solartron Metrology’s Multi Channel data processing system.

Testing for deformation of a vessel

 

By fixing one end of a wire and taking it around a vessel and attaching the other end to the core of a displacement transducer. Any change in the diameter of the vessel is related to the position of the transducer core.


Concrete testing

 

Testing fixtures supplied for building materials such as the manufacture of concrete is important to ensure of the correct properties of the material and understand it's capabilities. A fixture with a drain and Digital Probes can measure any bending of hardened concrete.

Hardness testing

 

Manufacturers producing mechanical testing instruments and welding machines must gather data in order to measure physical displacement. Solartron Metrology’s products are suitable for this type of application due to their rugged construction and high accuracy.

 


Materials testing for power generation

 

Data logging and processing systems and equipment can be used to provide information about properties of materials under high thermal and mechanical stress. Solartron Metrology are able to provide linear encoders to provide data feedback into the Orbit® 3 Network.

Mechanical testing for civil engineering

 

Test instruments supplied to the civil engineering industry can be used to survey the mechanical properties of soil and rock conditions. Transducers can be used instead of traditional manual dial gauges to improve the process.
