The Model 1505D-EXP Pressure Chamber Instrument is a combination instrument. It is a Model 1505D fitted with an external port out to a Cavitation Chamber. The instrument can be used as a Pressure Chamber or as a Cavitation Chamber by simply switching a valve. This unique design allows the user to have both instruments in one unit at a cheaper cost than buying the two instruments separate.
- Sap flow sensors
- Photosynthesis and respiration
- Soil moisture sensors, meters and data loggers
- Soil water potential
- Weather stations
We have upgraded the Control Valve and internal piping to now allow direct connection to Nitrogen Cylinders with 207 Bar/3000 PSI pressure. The instrument is fitted with a 100 Bar Digital Gauge that offers features such as backlighting and multiple pressure scales such as (Bar, Mpa and PSI).
Instrument 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 a specialty instrument that will benefit the user who is doing both Cavitation work and Pressure Chamber work.
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.
