INSPECTION 

Automated instrumentation is a fast-growing industry that is quickly becoming an essential part of the geotechnical & foundation engineering practice. With relatively low cost, reliability, and versatility, automated instrumentation is key to economical, safe, and predictable solutions for most geotechnical & foundation engineering problems. ASI provides comprehensive instrumentation services, including the design of specialized instrumentation and datalogging networks, installation of instrumentation devices and setup on-site, monitoring , data reduction, analysis, interpretation, and consulting. Our professionals design and assemble instrumentation devices and systems customized for special applications and specific project conditions. We provide advanced programming for automation of monitoring systems including conditional activation of other on-site equipment and systems, call-backs, and alarms. With the continuing fast-paced developments in the electronics and communication fields, automated instrumentation systems with remote access are becoming the future trend in the civil engineering industry. AATech’s engineers use advanced communication systems for data retrieval and real-time monitoring of instrumentation networks, including telephone, wireless RF, and network/internet connections.

HYDRAULIC JACK RENTALS AND CALIBRATION

AATech Scientific Inc. (ASI) has a workshop with a testing frame that is capable of testing jacks and load cells up to 1000 tonnes, with hydraulic pumps and pressure gauges to 10,000 psi. We calibrate load cells and hydraulic jacks in accordance to ASTM D5720-95. ASI also provides rental of load cells (ranging capacity from 50 tons to 1000 tons) and hydraulic jacks (ranging capacity from 100 tons to 1000 tons). Please contact the Head Office in Ottawa for more details regarding our rental and calibration services.

CONSULTING AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

ASI provides a full range of consulting services in the fields of geotechnical and foundation. Our engineering team combines extensive experience in engineering design, analysis, research, investigation, instrumentation, and monitoring, with an outstanding track record of hundreds of projects worldwide.

ADVANTAGES

  1. Easy to setup and use
  2. Extremely accurate
  3. Capable of collecting data at one-second intervals
  4. All readings of load and displacement are taken simultaneously
  5. Eliminates human errors in reading instruments

VIBRATION MONITORING

Pile driving activity causes repetitive transient vibration pulses. Reliable monitoring of these pulses requires a unique set of instrumentation features. AATech Scientific has capability to monitor continuously over long periods of time and record peak velocity data at regular intervals. AATech is also able to capture enough data to be able to understand the possible causes of high vibration readings, to avoid productivity issues.
