LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California, recently rolled out the FlowScout 2000 acoustic flow meter based on innovative acoustic Doppler technology.
The FlowScout 2000 acoustic flow meter is capable of reaching up to 18 meters in range with an accuracy of up to 0.5% +/- 2.0 mm/s. The operating frequency of the FlowQuest 2000 system is 2 MHz. The standard depth rating of the system is 100 meters. The FlowQuest system is typically used to precisely measure water velocities in water channels and pipes. It can be easily installed on an irrigation channel bank, a bridge abutment, a river bank or inside a pipe.
LinkQuest has invested extensively in state-of-the-art R&D and production technologies to reduce the overall system cost, and has ensured high cost effectiveness of the FlowScout 2000 system for very large scale deployments for water resource and waste water management. With its highly competitive cost and high accuracy, the FlowScout 2000 system is a perfect choice for long-term real-time monitoring of water flow and velocities in water channels, water pipes, rivers, ports, harbors and estuaries.
