H-Flumes

For Flow Accuracy & Measurement
H-Type flumes are used in open channels where free-falling discharge conditions are common. They provide excellent accuracy and rangeability for flow measurements. Originally designed to study agricultural runoff, H-flumes are also utilized to monitor storm water run-off and industrial flow.

H-Flume Options

H-flumes are available in three different styles based on the depth size of the flume and the geometry of the discharge face. Different from other flumes, H-flumes are more like V-notch weirs because of their exit geometry. They are sometimes called open channel flow nozzles, but listed as flumes because of their historical precedent. TRACOM offers three different types of H-flumes:
