  • The equipment can be transported, assembled, and operated easily by one person.
  • Soil Moisture Guelph Permeameter Kit measurements can be made in 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on soil type, and require only about 2.5 liters of water. 
  • Measurements can be made in the range of 15 to 75 cm below the soil surface.
  • A complete kit consisting of the permeameter, field tripod, well auger, well preparation and cleanup tools, collapsible water container, and vacuum test hand pump, all packaged in a durable carrying case.
  • Accessory attachments are available for extending the measurement capability of the permeameter.
  • Depth attachments increase the depth of operation by 80 cm.
  • The maximum practical operating depth is 315 cm.
  • Ring attachments allow ring infiltrometer measurements from 10-cm and 20-cm diameter rings.
  • A tension adapter allows measurements to be made under tensional and very low head conditions. 
  • Ring and tension infiltrometers are also available as stand-alone units, rather than attachments to a Guelph Permeameter unit.
  • The stand-alone units come as kits which include carrying cases and all items necessary to make measurements. 






Piston Sampler
Eijkelkamp Piston Sampler

Product Features
 
  • Eijkelkamp Piston Sampler suitable for sampling less cohesive soil layers (sand) below the groundwater table.
  • Also suitable for sampling sediments with a sand content.
  • Take almost undisturbed samples.
  • Available in lengths of 75, 150 and 200 cm.






Field Inspection Vane Borer
Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester

Product Features
 
  • Standard set for measurement up to 160 kPa (16 t/m2) and to a depth of 10 m.
  • A heavier tool for measuring the shear strength in the field.
  • Without pre-drilling a hole the vane can be pushed or hammered into the soil. If the soil is too hard, then it is recommended to pre-drill a hole.
  • Eijkelkamp 14.10 Pocket Vane Tester measurements can be executed up to a depth of 10 meter and a shear strength can be measured to a maximum of up to 160 kPa (16 t/m2).
  • Because of its unique 180° slip coupling this type of vane tester can be used to measure the friction and the shear strength of the rods direct and separately.
  • The standard set contains the measuring body, two vanes (60x120 mm and 75.8x151.5 mm), various extension rods, spanners, accessories and a carrying case.
  • Optionally available is an extractor.






FieldScout TDR 300 Soil Moisture Meter
Spectrum FieldScout TDR 300 Soil Moisture Meter

Product Features
 
  • Spectrum FieldScout TDR 300 Soil Moisture Meter has two volumetric water content modes; one for standard soils and one for higher clay soils.
  • In volumetric water content (VWC) mode, the meter converts a measured electrical signal into percent soil moisture content using an equation valid over a wide range of mineral soils.
  • In irrigation mode, the meter displays a relative water content (RWC) on a scale of 0 to 100 corresponding to a user-defined upper and lower soil moisture reference level.
  • Water deficit, the amount of water needed to bring the soil moisture content up to the upper reference level, is also calculated and displayed.
  • The reference levels are easily programmed into the meter with the accompanying software.
  • Can create up to 2 management sites based on soil types and crop needs.
  • Use the raw reading mode (measurement period in microseconds) to do soil-specific calibrations.
  • Instantaneous readings of root zone soil moisture.
  • Connects to any GPS receiver with serial output.
  • Equipped with internal data logger and RS-232 port.
  • Records 3,250 measurements (1,350 with added GPS/DGPS option).
  • Configure and download meter with FieldScout software (included).
  • Compatible with SpecMaps online web-mapping application.
  • Includes soft-sided carrying case.
  • Rods sold separately
  • New calibration feature added in 2012.
  • Garmin GPS 72H Handheld GPS Navigator recommended. 
  • Spectrum’s PC cables connect to a 9-pin serial port. USB-Serial adapterrequired for connection to computers with only USB ports.
  • GPS interface requires two cables. The GPS/DGPS cable is available from Spectrum. 
  • A PC serial interface cable supplied by the manufacturer of the GPS receiver is also required.

Guelph Constant Head Permeameter
Eijkelkamp 09.07 Guelph Constant Head Permeameter

Product Features
 
  • Eijkelkamp 09.07 Guelph Constant Head Permeameter is a ‘constant head’ permeameter that operates in accordance with the principle of the Mariotte bottle.
  • After boring a hole the Guelph permeameter is placed. The water from the permeameter slowly flows into the auger hole and penetrates into the soil.
  • At a certain moment a saturated ‘bulb’ is formed and the out-flow of water from the storage cylinder reaches a constant value (that is measured).
  • These measuring data together with the diameter of the auger hole and the level of the water in the auger hole, are used to determine the (saturated) hydraulic conductivity of the soil.
  • The complete standard set, for measurement up to a depth of 75 cm, fits in a carrying bag and contains the Guelph permeameter, a tripod, drill bits, a vacuumtest manual pump, a fold-up jerry can and various accessories.
