De-Aired Water Apparatus ( AIM 097-1)

The equipment has been designed specifically to meet the demand for de-aired water for use with Soil Testing Apparatus for reduction of time and labour to consolidate soil samples. For simultaneous flushing of many hydraulic Piezometer lines in dams and earth works to considerably reduce labour and disturbance at the top ends. It is particularly important that only de-aired water is used in the Pore Pressure measurement system. Any dissolved air in the water leads to error in measurement of Pore Pressure, particularly at low pressure.
