ESR Technology Ltd Structural Monitoring and Instrumentation


​The Structural Monitoring Division has considerable experience in the use of electronic instrumentation for on-site and remote measurement of structural behaviour for various applications, together with subsequent data analysis and reporting.

We understand the problems associated with data acquisition in remote and inaccessible locations. It is often necessary to obtain data wirelessly, via Bluetooth or to log over a mobile network.

Measurement capabilities include temperature, pressure, fluid flow rate, humidity, rotational speed, vehicle speed, vibration and strain, up to 200 channels at acquisition rates of over 2KHz is not uncommon.

We solve difficult problems and provide solutions for clients in many different industries using modern acquisition and logging equipment.

ESR have a wealth of experience carrying out bespoke rig design and testing of both static and dynamic structures, working everywhere from pumping stations to railway stations.


We carry out frequent work within the rail industry and as such, understand the safety protocols required for both permanent and temporary monitoring systems. Testing can be carried out stationary in the depot, in a test cell or on a moving vehicle, depending on the requirements of the test.


We work within the aerospace industry carrying out work to prevent failures of vital components i.e. strain gauging of landing gear components to measure impact force and carry out fatigue assessments.


Some examples of structural issues that have been investigated include; vibration monitoring of pump resonances, fatigue assessments of pulsating bellows within a power plant and structural surveys to determine the source of vibration affecting factory walkways.


Costly downtime can be prevented by providing continuous condition monitoring in the form of oil magnetic particle analysis, vibration monitoring and acoustic monitoring to aid early detection of bearing failures. One application where this has been used is on podded propulsion systems.

Modern techniques, such as ultrasonic fluid flow measurement is a non-invasive method for monitoring process fluid flow behaviour in live pipelines that cannot be disturbed.

Some applications require measurement and monitoring to be carried out at  very high temperature. ESR have experience working with instrumentation capable of withstanding industrial process temperatures of up to 250ºC.
