Metal flumes cover a wide variety of materials: stainless steel, aluminum, and galvanized steel. Each one of these materials has its own unique properties that make it the better choice for their own applications. Each metal flume is custom fabricated and can be outfitted with the same accessories as a fiberglass flume. All of TRACOM’s fiberglass flumes can be fabricated with metal
The key selling point of aluminum is its weight. Aluminum is very light which makes it excellent for portable flumes. Perfect for testing flows in remote streams, fields, and industrial applications.
Stainless steel boasts corrosion and temperature resistance, while being incredibly durable. Perfect for caustic industrial applications, stainless flumes fight off damage and stand up to time and the elements
Perfect for clean water, galvanized steel provides a durable and affordable metal flume. While easily repaired, galvanized flumes are prone to corrosion and other damage and are only recommended for low cost projects.
