The 2900F1 Quick Draw Tensiometer is designed for portable field use. It responds quickly and equilibrates rapidly with the tension in the soil, providing measurements within a few minutes. The Soil Coring Tool is first used to core an access hole to the desired depth of measurement. The tensiometer is then inserted into the access hole and the ceramic sensing tip is placed in contact with the soil. The Null Knob can be used to reach equilibrium and provide a measurement more rapidly. The coring tool, cleaning tool, and tensiometer are then returned to the carrying case for transportation and storage. An accessory kit, which contains a replacement ceramic sensing tip, O-rings, screwdriver, and Allen wrench, is included. Gauge shown to display face readout, comes ready for vertical viewing.
