Soil Thermal and Electrical Conductivity test

Tempsand is a Leader in soil thermal conductivity and soil thermal resistivity for the power industry in Australia

Soil thermal conductivity can preserve power infrastructure

Power and construction companies in Australia are starting to realise the importance of  the soil thermal conductivity test in the preservation of our underground power infrastructure. We at Tempsand are committed to quality test reports in determining

the thermal and electrical properties of not only natural soil but bedding materials.  If soil has a low conductivity this can cause excessive heating around the cable causing at best slowing of the electricity which minimises profits and at worst a melting of the cable. Tempsand has experience in natural soil thermal and electrical conductivity mix designs and the construction of flowable cement stabilised material designs.
