Description of Soil and Water Model Tank
- The apparatus consists of a narrow transparent fronted tank which may be partially filled with any soil type. It is supported on a bench mounted frame.
- The equipment is self-contained with a sump tank, pump and flowmeter fitted behind the tank. Water may be discharged along the soil surface or directed to twin drip nozzles to demonstrate trickle irrigation. Measurement of rates of water penetration into the soil is aided by a grid on the tank front.
- Removable end plates allow soil samples to be changed quickly and easily.
