Product Info

Description

The 2800K4 Guelph Permeameter kit consists of Support Tubes and Lower Air Tube Fittings, Reservoir Assembly, Well Head Scale and Upper Air Tube Fittings. This is a minimal kit intended to save money while supporting multiple installs at a site where you are sharing the tools from the complete 2800K1 Guelph Permeameter kit.

The 2800 Guelph Permeameter is a constant-head permeameter, which operates based on the Mariotte bubble tower principle and provides a quick and simple method for determining field saturated hydraulic conductivity, matric flux potential, the alpha-star (a *) parameter and soil sorptivity in the field. 

  • The Guelph Permeameter Kit supports the ASTM D5126 standard: Use the free calculator spreadsheet below!
  • Accurate evaluation of soil hydraulic conductivity, soil sorptivity, and matrix flux potential can be made in all types of soils.
  • The equipment can be transported, assembled, and operated easily by one person. 
  • Measurements can be made in 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on soil type, and requires only about 2.5 liters of water. 
  • Measurements can be made in the range of 15 to 75 cm below the soil surface. 
  • 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.
