Affordable Choice for RBC Flumes and Weir Boxes
Five portable flumes were developed in the mid-1980’s for use in measuring very low flows in furrows and small earthen channels. More accurately defined as broad-crested weirs; RBC flumes are in some ways a cross between Trapezoidal and Palmer-Bowlus flumes.
