A mechanical gradiometer is any of various surveying instruments for measuring angles of elevation, slope, or incline, as of an embankment or roadway. Also called clinometer or inclinometer, the 5012P provides accurate measurement of slope in Percent Grade and Inch Per Foot Rise. Rieker manufacturers these manual type gradiometers (or inclinometers) using precise glass tube and ball construction. All our tubes are filled with a special dampening fluid that controls the movement of the ball. The fluid combined with large, clear number and degree markings make it easy to get quick, accurate readings under a wide variety of severe environmental conditions.
5012-P Mechanical Gradiometer | Inclinometer
Our 5012-P manual gradiometer features two different scales: ±1.5 inch per foot-rise in 0.125 inch increments and ±13 percent grade in 1 percent increments. The housing is made of rugged thermoplastic making these clinometers extremely tough for all types of environments and weather conditions. With operating temperature ranging from -50°C to 180°C the 5012-P is the perfect all-season gradiometer. The large, clear number and degree markings make it easy to get quick, accurate readings.
