- No Spec Sheet Available...
The Imants® penetrometer is a professional compaction meter. Its purpose is to locate compaction in soil / turf / growing medium so that the right measurements can be taken to eliminate the compaction.
As a rule of thumb compaction greater than 20 bar (285 psi) need to be avoided since the roots have great difficulty to penetrate the soil. Lack of air is a great problem as well since Roots need oxygen to get nutrients available to the plants. The penetrometer helps you to monitor your rootzone.
