The Model 1000 Pressure Chamber Instrument is an old favourite, manufactured by PMS Instruments for over 40 years.

PMS Sealing Leaf into ChamberInstrument comes fitted with our most popular sealing gasket size – 1/4 inch Compression Gland Gasket and Insert. This gasket will seal a sample that is 1/4 inch in diameter down to a completely closed position. If you need other sealing options such as bladed grass or other semi-round sizes check our other options.

This is an excellent choice for research due to the large range of operating pressure. It is good for work on high stress level plants, pressure volume curves but can also be used for routine water measurements for crop plants.

The instrument requires a nitrogen source. You can use it in a lab or green house with a large cylinder or buy our light weight Portable Tank to allow for field work.
