GEOSYN PERMEABILITY TEST APPARATUS
Permeability is the property of soil which permits flow of water through its interconnecting voids. It is an important engineering property which governs the rate of settlement of saturated compressible soil layers and the rate of flow of aquifer. Permeability depends on numerous factors and hence it is always considered more accurate to determine permeability by direc laboratory method using apparatus called Permeameter.

GEOSYN RAPID MOISTURE METER
GEOSYN portable RAPID MOISTURE METER is most popular in determining the moisture contents of soil, sand , various types of pastes, powders and mixes etc in-situ, within a very short time.
The instrument operates on the principle of a reagent being introduced to the free moisture in the sample to be tested. This forms a gas , the amount being dependent upon the amount of free moisture in contact with the reagent. By containing the resultant gas in a sealed chamber, it is possible to measure the created gas pressure. The gauge in the instrument is calibrated to interpret this pressure as the percentage in the sample on the wet weight basis.
The instrument contains : a) Aluminium Pressure Vessel with a detachable cup,U-clamp, Clamp screw and a gauge calibrated in percentage of moisture content on wet weight basis. b) A counter poised Balance, mounted on a base attached in the carrying case, and be swiveled into position when requiree. The balance armis pre-loaded to indicate level when correct weight (5gms.) sample is placed in the pan. c) A scoop for measuring the absorbent d) One Container of the absorbent. e) One cleaning brush f) Steel balls.
