Deformation Meters (VW)

Deformation Meters (VW)



The Model 4430 Deformation Meter with flanged ends is designed to measure longitudinal deformation in dams and embankments. It can also be grouted or held in place by hydraulic anchors to measure deformations in boreholes (over the gage length). Gage lengths from 0.5 to 100 meters are available.
