Model 600D Pressure Chamber Instrument is our digital format of the Model 600. The instrument can be connected directly to a Nitrogen Cylinder with 207 Bar/3000 PSI pressure. The instrument is fitted with a 40 Bar Digital Gauge that offers features such as backlighting and multiple pressure scales (Bar, MPa and PSI).
Instrument comes fitted with our most popular sealing gasket size – 1/4 inch Compression Gland Gasket and Insert. This gasket will seal a sample that is 1/4 inch in diameter down to a completely closed position. If you need other sealing options such as bladed grass or other semi-round sizes check our other options.
This is an excellent choice for routine water measurements for crop plants and light research in plants with little to moderate water stress. 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 lightweight Portable Tank to allow for field work.
