The Kompakt Vibrating Wire Piezometer is designed for the accurate measurement of pore water pressures.

The piezometer tip has an integral porous filter element containing a diaphragm type Vibrating Wire pressure transducer. A cable connects the transducer to a read-out, terminal unit or data logger.

The readout displays either frequency based units, or by inputting the instrument calibration factor, engineering units.
