Pressure Cells

Push-in Type (VW) | Model 4830

  • Model 4830 Push-In Pressure Cell.
Model 4830

The Model 4830 Push-In Pressure Cell* is designed to be pushed in place for the measurement of total pressures in soils and earth fills. Where effective stress is required, the cell is fitted with an integral piezometer. A thread is provided on the end of the cell to allow for installation using lengths of pipe or drill rods.
