Flow Measurement

Closed & Open Channel Flow Meters.

Measuring flow rate within a closed pipe can be achieved with many different metering technologies.  Pipe size, fluid type and velocity are important factors when selecting the appropriate meter for your measurement application.  Magnetic Flow Meters, Acoustic Doppler Insertion Meters and Ultrasonic Transit Time Meters are the most common meters used in the industry. 

With your application and budget in mind, let us help determine the best flow measurement tool for you. We work with a variety of  manufacturers to measure flow within closed pipes, open channels, flumes and river applications. No application is too big or too small. For more information and to speak with a representative within the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama or the Panhandle of Florida, please use the contact form or call our 24 hour product support number.

ISCO Signature® Flow Meter

The Signature flow meter is designed for open channel flow monitoring applications. It supports flow measurement technologies including bubbler, non-contact laser area velocity, submerged Doppler ultrasonic area velocity, and ultrasonic. The meter can calculate flow using standard open channel level-to-flow and area velocity conversions, as well as user-defined equations, level to area data points, or level to flow data points, depending on the application need.
The Signature flow meter has unique features to verify data integrity. It logs key events such as changes in calibration and power outages to validate data accuracy. Data can be easily reviewed to detect any type of data alteration. With multiple smart interface options and multi-parameter logging (such as pH), the Signature flow meter provides a common platform for control action, reporting, and communication.

Multiple flow technologies are available so you can select the best flow technology for the measurement site and channel conditions. Available technologies are: bubbler, ultrasonic, continuous wave area velocity, and non-contacting LaserFlow™ velocity.

Applications

  • Industrial Pretreatment Compliance
  • Shallow Flow Measurement in Large and Small Pipes
  • Permit Enforcement
  • Wastewater Treatment Plants
  • Outfall

Flexim Clamp-On Flow Meters

fluxus flow meter

FLUXUS F401

Single Channel Portable Flow Meter

The FLUXUS F401 is FLEXIM's dedicated single channel portable flow meter for applications in the municipial water and wastewater sector offering long term stable and precise bidirectional flow measurements in remote areas outdoor - being ideal for water loss activities prescribed in AWWA M-36.

As the measurement is carried out from the pipe wall outside and without contact with the water column, there is no need to enter the piping system or to interrupt supply. Thus, the FLUXUS F401 is the ideal tool for service and maintenance activities, for long or short term monitoring, data logging and existing meter verification.

The FLUXUS F401 is equipped with water-tight IP68 / NEMA 6P transducers, with the flow transmitter residing inside a IP67 / NEMA 6 suitcase. Combining its internal battery capacity with an additional external battery suitcase (IP67 / NEMA 6 protected), the F401 offers long term remote measurements of at least one week.

FLUXUS F501

Bi-Directional Flow Measurement 

The FLUXUS F501 is FLEXIM's solution for many flow metering applications found in the water and wastewater sector and adjacent industries.

The FLUXUS F501 offers a precise bi-directional flow measurement over a wide turndown ratio - not only at high, but especially at low flow velocities. Due to its matched and paired transducers, it also guarantees a superior zero stability.

As of its high repeatability, the FLUXUS F501 also offers the possibility for leak detection. Especially at night, when temperatures are more even and only low flow velocities are common in drinking water lines, leakages can clearly be identified and such reading transferred to a process control system.
