Determination of water permeability, or hydraulic conductivity, is important for agricultural as well as for environmental soil research. The permeability factor, or K-factor, serves as an indication to base the designs of irrigation- and drainage systems on. It's also of great importance with respect to the extent of the spreading of possible pollution.View products
The water and air permeability of soil determine to a large extent how efficiently an irrigation- or drainage system functions. The planning and execution of hydrological- and soil technical projects (for instance drainage and irrigation) is therefore almost always preceded by geo-hydrologic research.
Determining the saturated water permeability (horizontal as well as vertical) can be executed in the field or in the laboratory with a soil water permeameter.
Soil permeability can be determined in the laboratory as well as directly in the field. View our selection of permeameters to find one suited to your project.
