    Delta-T - Model EQ3 - Equitensiometer - User Manual

    The EQ3 Equitensiometer (EQ3) measures soil matric potential and temperature. Soil matric potential is the negative pressure (or suction) required to extract water from between the matrix of soil particles. It is an important indication of plant water stress. The value of soil matric potential measured depends mainly on the quantity of water present and the make-up of the soil, though it is also ...

    Flottweg Centrifuges for Olive Oil Production - Applications Note

    Olive oil has been produced since antiquity. Ancient olive-oil making was done exclusively by hand. Later on, simple machines such as mechanical presses and pan grinders driven by human or animal power were used. The separation of oil, fruit water, and pulp was done by static settling. At the present time, olive oil is manufactured in a process using modern machinery. In the early 1970s, Flottweg ...
