The vibrating wire piezometer installation procedure requires complete knowledge and assistance. Before starting with the procedure, let’s first look at the list of tools needed for the installation.
The installation process for a vibrating wire piezometer involves the following steps:
1. Preparation of the sensor before installation: Ensure that the piezometer is clean and from any debris or contaminants. Check the integrity of the sensor and cables for any damages.
2. Saturating filters: Install the saturating filters provided with the piezometer to prevent clogging of the sensor. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the proper installation of saturating filters.
3. Installing the piezometer in a borehole/foundation: Select a suitable location for installation and drill the borehole or prepare the foundation. Insert the piezometer into the borehole/foundation, ensuring that it is properly aligned and centered. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific installation procedure.
4. Embedment of sensor and cable laying: After installing the piezometer, embed the sensor and cable in the surrounding material (e.g., soil, concrete). Take necessary precautions to ensure proper mounting and protection of the cable. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific embedment and cable laying procedure.
5. General precautions in the mounting of the cable: Take care to avoid sharp bends or kinks in the cable. Use suitable cable protection measures (e.g., conduit, ducts) where necessary. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the proper mounting of the cable.
6. Earth and rock fill dam installation: If installing the piezometer in an earth and rock fill dam, follow the recommended installation procedure. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific details on the installation process.
7. Concrete dam installation: If installing the piezometer in a concrete dam, follow the recommended installation procedure. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specifics on the installation process.
Please note that the specific details of the installation process may vary depending on the model and manufacturer of the vibrating wire piezometer. It is important to refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the specific installation procedure for your piez model.
