Turf-Tec International ASTM Infiltration Rings
ASTM 3385 Double Ring Infiltrometer
IN10-W: 12 and 24 Inch Diameters for ASTM 3385
The new Turf-Tec Infiltration Rings have diameters of 12 and 24 Inches (60 CM and 30 CM) and an overall height of 20 inches (50 CM) that match ASTM Standard D3385-09 which replaced old ASTM D3385-94 and ASTM D3385-03.
The Turf-Tec Infiltration Rings are double rings for standard testing of soils with a hydraulic conductivity between 1X10-2 cm/s or less than about 1 X 10-6 cm/s or sand type soils with high infiltration rates.
This Double Ring Infiltrometer set is constructed of heavy duty and durable galvanized steel and braced with welded steel supports inside and out to insure the rings stay evenly centered as they penetrate the soil.
These Infiltration rings are constructed of heavy duty 16 Gauge (.065 inch) galvanized steel to prevent rust and insure a long life. They also contain ports to allow easy connection of Turf-Tec Mariotte Tubes. These rings provide an ASTM approved double ring infiltration test which provides a soil infiltration test in a simple yet efficient manner.
Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch infiltration rings are already centered in position for ease of positioning rings and ease of insertion into the soil. The welded handle and welded inside support braces insure the rings are perfectly centered with every test. In addition, the center ring is already suspended one inch above the outer ring to identically match the ASTM specifications and to insure exact soil placement.
This method of testing is useful for field measurement of the infiltration rate of soils. Infiltration rates have applications in the field of liquid waste disposal, evaluation of potential septic tank disposal fields, leaching studies and drainage efficiencies. They are also helpful in determining irrigation requirements, water spreading or recharge, canal leakage and reservoir leakage testing and studies.
The purpose of the double ring is to insure the downward flow of movement of water to insure proper measurements. These infiltration rings are ideal for taking ASTM infiltration tests on all areas and match the ASTM 3385 test.
The Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch ASTM Infiltration Rings are useful in industries like geology, geotechnical, engineering, hydrology, forestry, environmental testing, hydro geological, runoff studies, rain gardens, wetland mitigation, permeability testing, sanitation contractors, project planning, Professional Engineers (P.E.) and EPA requirements. Double ring Infiltrometer, standard set.
Mariotte Tubes are also available and highly recommended to maintain constant head pressure (IN12 Purchased separately)
