We design and produce a wide range of Soil Science, Hydrology, Metereology, Ecology and Lysimeter technology that suits your needs
The Ready-To-Go lysimeters are small weighable lysimeter stations suitable for monoliths with diameters of 300, 500 or 800 mm and a length of 300, 600 or 900 mm. It is suitable for both disturbed (manually filled) and undisturbed soil monoliths
Insights into the “black box” soil
In addition to weighing, our Ready-To-Go Lysimeters are equipped with high-resolution, innovative tensiometer measuring technology. Tensiometer measurements are fundamental for comprehensive observation of the water balance of an ecosystem. The tension is a driving force for the movement of soil water. The worldwide novel and patented Full Range Tensiometer is a polymer tensiometer, which is perfectly adapted to the requirements of the Ready-To-Go Lysimeter technology. It covers the entire suction tension range relevant for plants up to 1500 kPa (pF 4.2). No refilling is necessary. The measurement is reliable even in difficult media. Salt containing locations, such as in arid areas, are no problem with correct calibration and due to the direct pressure measurement. The Full Range Tensiometer provides the soil temperature as an additional parameter.
Undisturbed soil columns
For largely undisturbed soil monoliths, we recommend the use of the UGT basic sampling technique. This can easily be applied by the user himself.
Benefit from the space-efficient extraction technology for undisturbed mineral or organic soils and moors developed by UGT and practiced for many years. Your soil columns can be extracted with high precision, undisturbed soil structure and minimal destruction of the extraction site. We recommend to equip the lower edge with the proven UGT- 3 layer filter gravel.
