14.04.04 Jetfill Tensiometers

The Jet-fill tensiometer basically has the same components as the standard tensiometer but is equipped with a reservoir and a refill mechanism. At a push of the button, the Jet-fill mechanism instantly injects water from the reservoir into the body of the tensiometer and removes accumulated air. This tensiometer can be provided in different lengths as well.
