High Temperature Strain Gauges

Covering the range 200C to 1325C offering strain gauges in a variety of configurations and mounting methods. Foil strain gauges can be supplied for up to 700C and wire gauges are used up to and sometimes beyond 1350C. We also offer a full installation service for these products.

  1. Concrete Gauges

    Concrete Gauges

    Model: HBP
    • 3 - 50mm gauge length
    • Polyimide carrier
    • 120 & 350 ohm gauges
    • Linear and multi-axis
    • Environmentally sealed

    Concrete Gauges

    The HBP seriese of strain gauges are specially constructed to meet the needs of measuring strain in concrete.  The strain gauge is mounted to a polyimide carrier and than has the cable attached with robust strain relief, the gauge and termination area are then potted in a polyurethane moulding to give mechanical and moisture protection. Strain gauge lengths of 3 to 50mm are offered as standard.  Custom designs to meet specific requirements can be readily manufactured.  Long gauge lengths are used to ensure strain averaging in non-homogeneous materials.

  2. Static strain measurements to 700+ºC

    Static strain measurements to 700+ºC

    Model: HFH Series
    • Static strain to 700ºC
