Soil Oxygen Content Analysis System (14.35)

The Eijkelkamp Soil Oxygen Content Analysis System (14.35) consists of a short soil ‘piercing probe’ attached to an oxygen content meter.  The ‘piercing probe’ is pushed into the soil manually. The oxygen content meter is connected to the probe and, using a bellows, soil gas is drawn into the meter and the O2 content is measured.

The oxygen content meter operates with an electrochemical cell.  This cell has a limited service life (about 1.5 years), but can be calibrated easily with air (21%) and with a gas free of oxygen (natural gas, nitrogen).

Soil gas analysis can yield a lot of information concerning the growing conditions for localised shrubs and trees.  Understanding soil gas is also the first step to measuring soil pollution – without the expense of core drilling.

FEATURES

Benefits Soil oxygen content analysis system

  • Sturdy and very simple to operate soil probe
  • Immediately shows living conditions for roots
  • Meter allows measurements up till 0% O2

Remarks

  • Meter needs renewal of O2 sensor regularly

System

This system consists of a short soil probe and an oxygen content meter. The probe is pushed into the soil manually. Once at the right depth the probe is lifted slightly. In this way the probe opens itself. Next, the oxygen content meter is connected to the probe and, using a bellows, soil gas is drawn through the meter and the O2 content is measured, and with that an important growing parameter for trees and plants, can be read. The probe has a small dead volume, so that a measurement can be executed accurately within minutes. The oxygen content meter operates with an electrochemical cell. This cell has a limited service life (about 1.5 years), but can be calibrated easily with air (21%) and with a gas free of oxygen (natural gas, nitrogen).
