Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

Lab Setup 0750LAB023

The Model 0750LAB023 is a multiple porous plate extraction system for laboratory use. This is one of the most popular lab systems, providing capabilities for a variety of soils and conditions. The 1500 and 1600 extractors together provide ample flexibility and capacity for low or high water content extraction routines. The combination provides for 2 extractor units for optimum plant water growth studies (0-5 Bar Water Retention Studies) whilst having 15 Bar capabilities as well.
This Lab Setup is designed for use with a compressed air supply, and does not include a compressor.

The Lab Setup 0750LAB023 is comprised of:

  • 0700CG23F1 Pressure Manifold, which combines the 0750G2 and 0750G3F1 manifolds and allows the operation of the 1500F1 15 Bar pressure plate extractor and the 1600 5 Bar pressure plate extractor. Output pressure can be regulated from 10 to 250psi (0.7 to 16 bars) and from 1 to 150 psi (0.1 to 10 bars). Double regulation is available on the manifold, without changing the gas tank regulator (0767P0300L05 for 750 manifolds). The 300 psi readout test gauge is graduated from 0 to 300 psi (0 to 20 bar), in 2 psi and 0.1 bar intervals. The 100 psi readout test gauge is graduated in 0.5 psi and .02 bar intervals.
  • 1500F2, 15 Bar Pressure Plate Extractor, used to analyse the water-holding characteristics of soil samples throughout the pressure range of interest in most agricultural applications. The pressure vessel is 4″ (10 cm) deep and has an inside diameter of 12″ (30 cm). Up to 4 ceramic plates can be accommodated at one time, allowing approximately 36 2-1/4″ samples to be analysed simultaneously. The Pressure Plate Extractor consists of a pressure vessel and lid, clamping bolts, O-ring seals, and outflow tube assemblies.
  • 1600F1, 5 Bar Pressure Plate Extractor, allows analysis of the water-holding characteristics of soil samples in the 0 to 5 bar pressure range. The pressure vessel is 9″ (22 cm) deep and has an inside diameter of 12″ (30 cm). Up to 4 ceramic plates can be accommodated at one time, allowing approximately 48 each 2-1/4″ (5.7 cm) diameter samples to be analyzed simultaneously. The Pressure Plate Extractor consists of a pressure vessel and lid, clamping bolts, O-ring seals, and outflow tube assemblies.
  • 4x 0675B15M1, 15 Bar Extractor Pressure Plate Cell. Developed from a proprietary mixture of ball clays fired to a ceramic body. Pinkish-tan in colour, moderately hard and will withstand pressure differentials of 15 Bar (217.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 220 psi. Effective pore size: 0.16 micron. Hydraulic conductivity: .00000000259 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 32% by vol. Flow through.
  • 4x 0675B05M1, 5 Bar Extractor Pressure Plate Cell. Recommended for specialised applications where the pressure differentials are under 5 Bar (72.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 80 psi. Effective pore size: 0.5 micron. Hydraulic conductivity: .000000121 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 31% by vol. Flow through
  • 4x 0675B03M1, 3 Bar Extractor Pressure Plate Cell. A complex mixture of ball clays into a moderately fired ceramic body. Good porosity and good hydrologic flow capability. The material is moderately hard and tannish-white in colour, not recommended for fluid sampling. Recommended for specialised applications where the pressure differentials are under 3 Bars (43.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 46 – 70 psi. Effective pore size: 0.7 microns. Hydraulic conductivity: .00000025 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 34% vol. Flow through
  • 4x 0675B01M3, 1 Bar Extractor Pressure Plate Cell. Developed from a high fired Alumina body. Extremely porous, inert to most all solutions, possesses hard exterior and interior surfaces, and pure white in colour. Recommended for standard pressure differentials under 1 Bar (14.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 28 – 32 psi. Effective pore size: 2.5 microns. Hydraulic conductivity: .0000086 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 45% by vol. Flow through
  • 1093F1 Soil Sample Retaining Rings. Eight sets of 12, used to hold soil samples on a pressure plate cell during an extraction run.
  • 0775L60 Connecting Hose. 60″ (152.4cm) long, for 1500 extractor. 1/2″ O.D., 1/4″ I.D. pressure tubing, with swivel fittings to connect to the manifold and extractor.
  • 0776L60 Connecting Hose. 60″ (152.4cm) long, for 1600F1 extractor. 1/2″ O.D., 1/4″ I.D. pressure tubing, with a swivel fitting to connect to the manifold, and a hose clamp to connect to the extractor.
  • 1080G1 PM Hinge. For use with the 1500F2 extractor. The hinge attaches to the back of the extractor, for ease of opening.
  • 1055K1 Right Angle Outflow Adapter Kit. Set of 4. 3/16″ O.D. Neoprene tubing, and 3/32″ O.D. Nylon tubing. Useful for modifying the outflow path from extractors.
  • 1057K1 Plug Bolt with Seal. Set of 5 stainless steel plug bolts, 1/4″ diameter threaded male fitting.

 Optional:

  • 0675B0.5M2, 0.5 Bar high flow pressure plate. High fired, Alumina body. An excellent material, extremely porous, and inert to most all solutions. Hard exterior and interior surfaces and pure white in colour. Recommended for low air pressure differentials not exceeding 0.5 Bar (7.25 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 12-16 psi. Effective pore size: 6.0 microns. Hydraulic conductivity: .0000311 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 50% by vol. Typical flow through for a 1/4-inch plate: 180 ml/hr/cm2 at 14.7 psi. Ideal for liquid or gas sampling as the Alumina material has almost no ionic exchange sites or leachable mineralogy. Truly a superior ceramic for both industrial and scientific work where high volume transfer or testing at low pressure differentials is needed.
  • 0675B01M1, 1 Bar pressure plate.
