Amongst the simplest of tools for environmental management, Soil Water samplers perform the task of collecting available soil water along with dissolved minerals, nutrients and also pollutants.
Having different names across the world, such as Lysimeters, Soil solution Access Tubes, Pore water samplers, this family of instruments is the must have for anyone wishing to know what goes on beneath the soil. Be it a farmer or a conservationist, sampling with this instrument tells you whether to add fertilizers or what remedial action must be taken.
The AIC Soil Water Sampler
Our indigenous sampler from our porous ceramics line allows you to find a competent solution at very affordable prices. Ceramic membranes available in two variants – Ceramic samplers for most applications and Silicon carbide samplers for contaminated sites/ remediation sampling
The Soil Solution Access Tube
Widely used in agriculture and horticulture, The Irrometer SSAT (Soil Solution Access Tube) is one of the most widely commercially available soil moisture sampling implements available. Paired with Hand Vacuum Pumps and extraction syringes, these are amongst the most affordable and competent solutions available to the farming community. SSAT datasheet
