About Suction Probe Technology

Ingredients of the soil water and their composition provide important information on transport, spread, and reaction of substances in soil. Investigations of the composition of the soil water solution enable insights into the transport and transformation processes within the soil. Suction probes are used to retrieve undisturbed and authentic soil water samples to analyze the contained solutes.

With many years of experience in the development, manufacture, and installation of suction probes technologies, UGT GmbH can offer a wide range of products, which provides a solution for every suction probe application. The choice of teh appropriate design and materials in combination with the vacuum generation and control technologies ensures effective and reliable sampling.
