Hydro Frac System (AIM 240 )

Aimil Hydro Frac System has been developed for application of In-situ stress measurement by Hydro Fracture Test at near surface and underground situations. The compact nature of Hydro Frac tool enables location of the tool in a section of test hole free of incipient weakness in the rock mass and as uniform as possible. This also means that the stress measurements can be made within a volume of rock small enough that stress gradient will not have a significant in pact on the measurement. The equipment is designed for operating upto a depth of 30m approximately consistent with a typical application envisaged and avoiding the need for any sophisticated "down hole" Instrumentation.
