2816 Chameleon Kit

The Chameleon is an accurate and fully automated laboratory system for measuring saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat). The Chameleon is capable of performing Ksat measurements according to both the Falling-Head and Constant-Head Methods. Thanks to the Monitor® Precision Pressure Transducer and the Chameleon Software Application, both measurement methods are fully automated.

The Chameleon uses standard Soilmoisture Tempe Cells (5.7 cm diameter, 6 cm height) and comes with all the required components (a computer is required, but is not included in the standard kits).
Laboratory hydraulic conductivity measurement is a very common measurement method used in several important areas including Industrial Soil Physics, Education, Agricultural Research, Irrigation Projects, Construction Projects, Mining Sites, Oil Industry, Environmental Studies, and Geological Studies.
