Measurement Instrumentation

SSIS offers specialized services to develop, install and monitor state-of-the-art measurement instrumentation for the civil and mining engineering industries.  Measurement instrumentation, selected by a systematic planning process called an instrumentation monitoring programme, is an invaluable tool to monitor performance usually during the construction or operation phase of a project.

SSIS has developed a profile measuring device called a Pipeline Profilometer which is used to accurately and quickly measure the deflected shape of pipelines, tunnels and other round openings.  The Profilometer accurately measures the distance from a point near the centre of the pipe or round tunnel to the inside pipe or tunnel surface at fixed intervals around the entire circumference.  This data is then processed to compute the pipe or tunnel shape and change in radius (diameter) at any angular position in 0.25 degree intervals around the full circumference.
