Cherne Deflection Gauges

Cherne-Deflection-Gauges

Deflection Gauges (mandrels) are used to test flexible sewer pipe for out-of-roundness or deflection per ASTM specifications D3034 and F679. This testing ensures that flexible pipe has been properly bedded and backfilled (ASTM D2321) to give optimal performance.

Aluminium Fin Style Deflection Gauge:

  • Lightweight, corrosion-resistant
  • Field-verifiable without a proving ring
  • Assembles without tools
  • All sizes fit through standard 24″ manhole
  • Fins for 4″-15″ gauges have skid size equal to the nominal pipe size—gauge will meet regional codes and will not tip in the line
  • Nine-fin design ensures testing accuracy
  • Open design allows gravel and debris pass-through

Fixed Steel Style Deflection Gauge:

  • Durable, zinc-plated construction resists corrosion
  • Conforms to mandrel sizing specifications—blade length is equal to or greater than the nominal pipe size
  • Nine-arm design ensures testing accuracy
  • Open design allows gravel and debris pass-through

Both steel and aluminium gauges utilize a nine arm design to ensure the pipe is tested accurately. This design also allows gravel and debris to easily pass through. Other gauges can get hung up – causing a deflection test to fail, even though the pipe is within tolerance. Sized to .01″ , both deflection gauge styles meet ASTM requirements.
