RSES Rainfall Simulator for Soil Erosion Studies

RAINFALL SIMULATOR FOR SOIL EROSION STUDIES - RSES

INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS

The Rainfall Simulator for Soil Erosion Studies, "RSES", designed by EDIBON, allows to investigate and study the relationship between rainfall and erosion in different types of soils, to estimate soil loss and infiltration in storms of different intensities and to identify methods by which erosion can be prevented.

General Description

The Rainfall Simulator for Soil Erosion Studies, "RSES", consists of a metal frame that can be placed directly on the ground for direct studies or used with its different accessories for laboratory tests.

The entire frame is covered with a transparent curtain to prevent splashing.

The upper part supports the rain sprayer device which consists of a spray nozzle adjustable by means of a horizontal rotating disk controlled by a variable speed motor allowing to obtain variations in the intensities of the induced precipitation.

A water storage tank with a level switch is included from which a pump and a regulating valve drive the water to the rain sprayer.

The water is metered through a flow meter.

Depending on the opening of the rotating disk a certain amount of incoming water will be sprayed and the rest is recirculated back to the tank.

Different accessories such as rain gauges, different test plots, tilting stand, etc. are included.
