Model 615 Pressure Chamber Instrument
The Model 615 Pressure Chamber Instrument is the product of customer input. Our customers made requests for an instrument that was fully enclosed in a sealed case with an easily removable tank. They wanted an instrument that was easily hand carried or ready for mounting on an All-Terain-Vehicle (ATV). The results of these requests is the Model 615 Pressure Chamber.
The instrument has a bail-spring handle for carrying and comes complete with a shoulder strap to lighten the load in the field. It has 5 tie-down rings for mounting to ATV or other transportation. The 22 cubic foot aluminum cylinder is secured with 2 inch heavy duty velcro straps and can be quickly replaced with a full cylinder. The cylinder may also be trans-filled by simply disconnecting the supply hose and connecting to a master cylinder with the 6 Foot Filling Hose.
The Model 615 Pressure Chamber Instrument is one of our instruments of choice for routine water measurements for the purpose of deficit irrigation management or irrigation scheduling.
