Model 670 Large Pressure Chamber 40 Bar

The Model 670 Pressure Chamber Instrument is unique due to the large chamber. The chamber is 4 inches in diameter and 7 inches deep. We only recommend this instrument if you are working with a large leaf since it takes a large amount of nitrogen to fill the chamber and makes working with smaller samples time consuming. This instrument comes standard with a Compression Gland Sealing System fitted with a 1/2 Inch Compression Gland Gasket and Insert. This gasket will seal samples from 1/2 inch diameter down to 3/8 inch diameter. Other sealing options such as bladed grass or other semi-round sizes check our other options are available.

Model 670 Pressure Chamber Instrument is unique in our instrument line in due to the large chamber. The chamber is 4 inches in diameter and 7 inches deep. We only recommend this instrument if you are working with a large leaf since it takes a large amount of nitrogen to fill the chamber and makes working with smaller samples time consuming. If you are looking at making routine water measurements for scheduling deficit irrigation or explaining plant water relations and do not need this large chamber we recommend the Model 600. We have recently (September 2011) updated this instrument with some changes that most users will appreciate. We have upgraded the Control Valve and internal piping to now allow direct connection to Nitrogen Cylinders with 207 Bar/3000 PSI pressure. This stainless steel valve is more durable and has a better packing therefore giving more life.

This instrument comes standard with a Compression Gland Sealing System fitted with a 1/2 Inch Compression Gland Gasket and Insert. This gasket will seal samples from 1/2 inch diameter down to 3/8 inch diameter.

If you need other sealing options such as bladed grass or other semi-round sizes check our other options. A Volume Reducer is not available for this instrument.

For extensive research projects you might consider a Model 1000 or Model 1505D due to the large range of operating pressure. The instrument requires a nitrogen source. You can use it in a lab or green house with a large cylinder or buy our light weight Portable Tank to allow for field work.
