In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for shipping, transportation, irrigation, drainage and for cooling water extraction of power plants. A further important use of transit-time open channel flow meters is the transportation of water used for the supply of drinking water. Here the focus lies on detecting the flow rate of water loss at an early stage as it is sometimes difficult to detect small leakages. Our open channel flow meters measure flow velocity precisely and reliably in order to prevent long term water losses. Applications range from single path installations to very accurate multipath applications.

Single-, Crossed- & Multi-path Systems
Standardized mounting devices for any kind of channel geometry like rectangular, trapezoid or natural river banks are available. The design is flow optimized protecting the transducers against moving objects suspending in the flow stream. It also provides room for connections and protective conduits.

The AquaProfiler® M is a high-precision point-velocity meter. It use a complex pulse-to-pulse coherent sampling scheme that gives the instrument high precision in measurement of velocity within a very small volume a few centimeters in front of the sensor.
The AquaProfiler® M-Pro is an instrument that operates in a manner very similar to an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). The primary difference is that the probe is kept fixed on the channel bottom and provide vertical velocity data in up to 128 cells.
