Choosing which measurement device you’re going to use for your flume or weir is one of the most important decisions in the entire flow rate measurement process. Both bubblers and ultrasonic flow meters can get the job done, but the best option depends largely on the conditions of your flow channel. Check out the important […]
Ultrasonic Mounting Brackets
Ultrasonic sensors are among the most popular and easiest ways to take flow rate measurements in a flume or weir box. They utilize sonic waves to measure surface height of a flow without ever having to even touch the water directly. To set them up, however, you’ll need special brackets to keep them in place.
While there are several ways to measure flow rate in a flume, one of the most popular is using an ultrasonic flow meter. These handy devices are able to provide accurate measurements while sitting steadily over the flow, typically on a mount positioning it just above the center of the channel. Knowing exactly how ultrasonic
