Güralp Systems has been producing revolutionary broadband seismic instrumentation for more than 35 years. Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, Güralp seismic sensors and data acquisition systems are used worldwide by academic, public, governmental and commercial organisations to understand and explore our world.
Güralp analogue and digital instruments record seismic events and signals of all kinds, from teleseismic events occurring on the other side of the planet, to microseismic events such as those induced by human activities (e.g. hydraulic fracturing; geothermal energy plants).
Applications include local, regional and global earthquake research; early warning systems; volcanology; structural health monitoring; energy exploration and optimisation; and induced seismicity monitoring.
Güralp’s high fidelity digitisers ensure that seismic signals are recorded with the highest resolution with the accurate timing required for research applications. For risk management and emergency response requirements, they offer industry leading low-latency functionality meaning data processing and transmission can be achieved in record times.
Güralp has a programme of continuous development, investing in new ways of engineering their precision technology into smaller and more advanced casings that can be deployed in the harshest of environments. Their products can be found in the remotest of locations, from the Antarctic ice sheet; to bore-holes hundreds of metres deep; to the world’s most active volcanoes and deepest ocean trenches.
Based 50 miles outside London, Güralp employs over 110 committed staff members who design and build all our instrumentation in our UK manufacturing facilities.
