|One Drill Guide.
After removing the necessary bark, the drill guide is attached to the tree with a velcro strap.
|Five 1.9mm Drill Bits.
Drill bit for most installations
|Two 2.0mm Drill Bits.
Drill bit is used to clean holes in species where the xylem fibres have either not been easily and cleanly cut and relax back into the pathway after drilling or when surrounding fibres expand into the hole and rapidly close up the pathway, making insertion of the needles difficult.
|Three 100mm Measurement Needle Sleeves.
To be inserted into the drilled hole to aid in insertion and removal of the sensors.
|One 120mm Heater Sleeve
To be inserted into the drilled hole to aid in insertion and removal of the sensors
|One Insertion Tool.
To aid in the insertion of the sleeves
Fill the 10mm Offset Syringe with the grease to create a vacuum seal.
|One 10ml Offset Syringe.
Use the syringe filled with Silicon grease to smear around the whole of the wound, thus creating a vapour seal
