Hand Held Infiltrometer

A handheld Infiltrometer that provides quick and convenient measurements of soil hydraulic conductivity. The Infiltrometer is constructed of a polycarbonate tube with a semi-permeable stainless steel sintered disk. An adjustable steel tube is installed above the sample chamber to regulate the suction rate. The Infiltrometer is immersed in water and the rubber stopper is installed while it is still underwater. When taken out of the water, it will not infiltrate until the water tension on the disk is broken. The disk is placed on the soil surface, and the volume change is recorded at regular intervals. This Infiltrometer is ideal for soil hydrology studies, classroom instruction, research, and many other applications. The suction rate can be adjusted to accommodate measurement of any soil type.
