FEL5-MKII – Demonstration Infiltration Apparatus

A simple but effective laboratory demonstration of infiltration processes, which are fundamental to any form of irrigation study.

Description

A simple but effective laboratory demonstration of infiltration processes, which are fundamental to any form of irrigation study.

The FEL5-MKII Demonstration Infiltration Apparatus comprises of three transparent cylinders in which soil samples are placed. Water poured onto the soil surface can then be observed as it infiltrates the sample.

The Armfield Demonstration Infiltration Apparatus provides a simple but effective laboratory demonstration of infiltration processes, which are fundamental to any form of irrigation.

Each cylinder features a graduated scale so that observations may be quantified. Each cylinder incorporates an air breather and a perforated base plate to facilitate drainage without undue soil loss.
