Lenght must be specified when ordering: 30 cm / 60 cm / 90 cm / customised lengths on request
The insertion auger cuts out a core to minimise the compaction of the soil during the installation of the tensiometer and thereby also the influence of the installation on the measurement values. The adjusted, tapered shape of the auger allows optimum contact between ceramic and soil for the best possible connection to the pore system. With the insertion auger the measurement point can be evaluated directly prior to the installation of the tensiometer regarding its suitability for a tensiometer measurement. Obstacles in the soil are already noticed during the pre-drilling so that they won`t lead to a damage of the tensiometer. The soil core in the auger gives information on the soil at the measurement point.
This insertion auger is part of the Tensio 100 set.
