The Chameleon is an accurate and fully automated laboratory system for measuring saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat). The Chameleon is capable of performing Ksat measurements according to both the Falling-Head and Constant-Head Methods. Thanks to the Monitor® Precision Pressure Transducer and the Chameleon Software Application, both measurement methods are fully automated.
The Chameleon uses standard Soilmoisture Tempe Cells (5.7 cm diameter, 6 cm height) and comes with all the required components (a computer is required, but is not included in the standard kits).
Laboratory hydraulic conductivity measurement is a very common measurement method used in several important areas including Industrial Soil Physics, Education, Agricultural Research, Irrigation Projects, Construction Projects, Mining Sites, Oil Industry, Environmental Studies, and Geological Studies.
