TNS02 Thermal Needle Set for Thermal Resistivity Measurement

Thermal needle set for thermal resistivity / conductivity measurement

The TNS02 efficiently and accurately performs on-site (field) as well as laboratory measurements of the thermal conductivity and thermal resistivity of soils. The system is a combination of our FTN02 and MTN02 systems. Measurement with TNS02 complies with ASTM D5334 and IEEE 442 standards. It is designed for optimal flexibility. TNS02 includes two different needles; one on a short insertion tool for use in the laboratory, the other mounted on a long lance for use on-site. The control and readout unit, CRU02, is shared between the two (on-site and laboratory) needle models.

TNS02 essentially consists of a combination of FTN02 and MTN02 components: the insertion tool IT03 and needle TP07 of MTN02 are added to FTN02.

Suggested use

  • route surveys, on-site (field) measurements
  • laboratory analysis of soil specimens
