Eijkelkamp 14.35 Soil Oxygen Content Analysis System

 
Soil Oxygen Content Analysis System
 
  • Eijkelkamp 14.35 Soil Oxygen Content Analysis System consists of a short soil probe and an oxygen content meter.
  • The probe is pushed into the soil manually. Once at the right depth the probe is lifted slightly. In this way the probe opens itself.
  • Next, the oxygen content meter is connected to the probe and, using a bellows, soil gas is drawn through the meter and the O2 content is measured, and with that an important growing parameter for trees and plants, can be read.
  • The probe has a small dead volume, so that a measurement can be executed accurately within minutes.
  • The oxygen content meter operates with an electrochemical cell.
  • This cell has a limited service life (about 1.5 years), but can be calibrated easily with air (21%) and with a gas free of oxygen (natural gas, nitrogen).
