Turf-Tec International Large Volume Mariotte Tubes for use with 12 and 24 Inch Diameters Infiltration Rings for ASTM 3385
IN13-W: Large Volume Mariotte Tubes
|The new Turf-Tec
Large Volume Mariotte Tubes match the ASTM for standard testing of soils with a hydraulic conductivity
around 1X10-2 cm/s or loose sand type soils with very high infiltration rates.
The new large volume tubes can also hold a large volume of water for
extended testing periods.
These tubes are a companion tool for using with the Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch Infiltration Rings (IN10-W). They match the ASTM Standard D 3385-03 which replaced old ASTM Standard D 3385-94.
The Turf-Tec Large Volume Mariotte Tubes are constructed of durable heavy wall PVC tubing with solid brass and stainless steel hardware for many years of service. The Large Volume Mariotte Tubes allow for measurement of liquids flow during the infiltration test.
The Turf-Tec Large Volume Mariotte Tubes allow for measurement of liquids flow during the infiltration test by providing a constant flow of water into the Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch Infiltration Rings. The set consists of two Large Volume Mariotte Tubes, each one containing 100,000 ml (100 liter or about 26 gallons). The tops are removable for easy maintenance and cleaning and the site glass is calibrated in 250 ml increments. Each tube is fitted with a solid brass valve to regulate the flow of water from the Mariotte tube and into the Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch Infiltration Rings. Once the flow rate of liquid from the Mariotte Tubes is consistent with the infiltration into the soil from the Turf-Tec 12 and 24 inch Infiltration Rings, the calibrated sight glass on the side of the tubes can be checked for infiltration rates. The Turf-Tec Large Volume Mariotte Tubes allows testing personnel the ability to perform other tasks and periodically check and record the infiltration rate instead of manually filling the Infiltration rings by hand.
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.
