UGT presents the ku-pf 4.2 SP at the 21. World Congress of Soil Science in Rio

Rio_ 2018 Banner

A  high-end scientific new tool!

Come and see us at our booth!

The ku-pf 4.2 SP is a laboratory instrument for the automatic determination of any saturated hydraulic conductivity ku and the pF curve (water tension curve).

Advantages of the new  ku-pF 4.2

  • Extension of the measuring range to the welting point  pF = 4.2
  • Real measured values to pF = 4.2 – no modeling


By the help of our patented FRT – full range tensiometers  developed by UGT we make sure that the measurement  covers the complete range of pressure heads relevant for plants, that can reach up to 1500 kPa depending on the model. Unlike other systems used for this measuring range. Like this the ku-pf 4.2 is the only device that can do a real  measurement in this wide range.

We are looking forward to discuss with the scientists from all over the world this interesting new equipment – come and see us at our booth 29 in Rio.
