Percolation device


  • Determining the loss of liquid during the settlement of soil samples which are compressed.

The percolation device determines the ion-composition of a soil solution under saturated conditions and is designed such that it simultaneously percolates a defined solution amount with a constant skipping speed from various undisturbed soil samples in different soil sample cylinders (volume: 100 cm³). The skipping speed can be set from 0.1 to 9mm/min in a test run. The percolation speed can be adjusted to the specific local hydraulic conditions.
