EPC Metrics


EPC-UK has a wide range of seismographs for sale and for short- or long-term hire.  Our hire fleet of seismographs range from portable units to advanced fixed monitoring systems allowing the immediate access of event data via state-of-the-art online platforms, removing the need to travel to and from a monitoring location. These systems then automatically transmit data to a central location where results can be published and accessed instantly.

Our systems can measure vibration, air over pressure, noise, acceleration and more.

We offer a variety of different seismographs, working closely with our partners to ensure we provide our customers with the most innovative and technologically advanced service on the market. Talk to one of our experts today about which seismograph solution is right for your business.
