The Aardvark Permeameter is the very first automated Constant Head Borehole Permeameter. The Aardvark sets up in minutes and automatically records reading for water consumption rate. In minutes it will automatically determine Steady State, calculate Steady State Water Consumption Rate and then give you the Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity (K value).
The Aardvark Permeameter features:
|Reading Accuracy:||0.2 ml|
|Max Nominal Measurement Depth:||15m (50 ft)|
|Measurement Range (Ksat):||10-4 to 10-9 m/s|
|Min. Head Height:||10cm|
These kits consist of an Aardvark Permeameter Kit (2840K1 for measurements shallower than 3m (11 ft) or 2840K2 for measurements deeper than 3m) and a Digital Scale (7201W10) which can be connected to a personal computer (not included) and used to record the measurements automatically and accurately, using the SimplyData Software Suite.
There is no need to manually record data or manually perform the calculations. It is also possible to view the real-time graph of soil-water flux rate during the measurement period. This kit is a perfect option for laboratory experiments where it can easily be connected to a personal computer. It can also be used in the field using a portable laptop computer. This model can even be used to take manual readings (when no PC is available).
Using the digital scale significantly adds to the accuracy of readings.
