The KSAT is an instrument that measures the saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat) of soil samples. Hydraulic conductivity—the rate at which water flows through soil—is a key component in most models that simulate water flow, solute transport, and runoff. The KSAT measures saturated hydraulic conductivity.
Automation-no timing outflow, weighing beakers, or making judgment calls.
Better data—dramatically improves accuracy by reducing human error.
Both Constant and Falling Head methods.
Easy-to-use software—performs all calculations and makes temperature corrections based on the viscosity of water.
Wide Range—measure conductivities from 10,000 - 0.1 cm/d.
Based on the inversion of Darcy’s Law.
Complies with DIN 19683-9 and DIN 18130-1.
