Eijkelkamp 09.01.SA Hydraulic Conductivity Test Kit, Model Hooghoudt

 
Tension Infiltrometer
 
  • Eijkelkamp 09.01.SA Hydraulic Conductivity Test Kit, Model Hooghoudt is measures the hydraulic properties of unsaturated soil.
  • Water held under tension infiltrates into a dry soil through a highly permeable nylon membrane.
  • The time dependent infiltration rate is used to calculate unsaturated hydraulic conductivities and related hydraulic properties.
  • Infiltration rates are recorded manually.
  • With the pressure transducers, which can be connected to a datalogger, the rates can also be read electronically. The pressure transducers can be attached to the top and the bottom of the water reservoir.
  • Standard set contains a tension  infiltrometer with separate base plate, a small hand-operated vacuum pump for use during calibration, a metal ring and spare nylon mesh screens.
  • Pressure transducers and a datalogger are optional items.
