Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Laboratorium Permeameters
Make                                   : Eijkelkamp
Model                                  : 09.02.02.25
Specification   :The laboratory permeameter operates on the basis of the principle by creating a difference in water pressure on both ends of a saturated soil sample and measuring the resulting flow of water file permeability can be determined. Specification: Permeameter models Open system : sample rings 53 and 60 mm 5,10 or 25 samples Closed system : sample rings 53 and 60 mm 5,10 or 25 samples Pump Type Eheim 1048 Power rating 230 V,50 Hz Power 10 W Capacity 10 Liter/Minute IP67 Upto 1 meter (suitable for continuous use under water to a max. depth of 1 meter) Maximum lift 1.5 meter.it is recommended to apply a maximum lift of 1.0 meter

Click to ViewThe laboratorium permeameter is suitable for measuring the saturated permeability of undisturbed soil and ground in sample rings and cylinders. The permeability coefficient or 'K-factor' can be determined for virtually all types of soils, except for highly permeable or soils susceptible to expansion and contraction. Depending on the sampling method the vertical or horizontal permeability is determined.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe working principle of laboratory permeameter is as follows: The laboratory permeameter operates on the basis of the principle by creating a difference in water pressure on both ends of a saturated soil sample and measuring the resulting flow of water file permeability can be determined. In a closed system water is being pumped up from a storage cistern (1), using a circulation pump (2), to an adjustable level regulator (4) through a filter (3). The regulator is connected to a plastic container (5), and has a pipe to lead back surplus water to the storage cistern.

  Applications
  User Instructions
Saturated permeability measurement using a laboratory permeameter is applied to determine the speed of flow of water in ground in: Agriculture and horticulture Irrigation and drainage Civil and hydraulic engineering, such as the construction and reinforcement of dams and dikes Agricultural engineering Environmental research, such as the transport of polluting solutions, manure or radio-active waste in the groundwater Ecological surveys and nature conservation... · Setup the permeameter at spirit level. If necessary, place it on an elevation · Fill the storage cistern with water · After taking the sample they need to be saturated in the container of the permeameter
