Tensiometer Service Unit

Attention all Irrometer Tensiometer customers

Please note that the Tensiometer Service Unit, catalog number 1001, is necessary for all Irromter Tensiometer installations. This item is not used with the Warermark series, and is only needed for fist time Tensiometer customers. The kit includes the reservoir solution and a pump to remove air from the chamber of the tensiometer, without, the reading this device will not be accurate.

The IRROMETER Model MLT (Miniature Low Tension) was designed for use in small containers commonly used in greenhouses and nurseries. Its compact design and short insertion depth of 4.75 inches (12 cm) allows the MLT to be installed in smaller growing vessels. With a range of 0-40 centibars (cb) or kilopascals (kPa), this instrument is for use in situations where tensions above 30 cb (kPa) are rarely expected. Gauge increments of 1 cb (kPa) provide a benefit where finer resolution near saturation is needed. This model instrument is also well suited for conditions where rapidly changing soil moisture conditions need to be observed. The “Quick-Flo” ceramic tip is colored blue for easy identification.
