Water Flow & Water Velocity

Xylem Analytics - water flow and water velocity monitoring

The demand for monitoring waterflow is increasing. Climate change and water scarcity issues have increased the demand to quanitfy increasingly smaller flows from a wider array of environments. Xylem Analytics Australia has a range of instruments from ADCP's through to magflow meters, for continuous flow monitoring or instantaneous sampling.

WL16 Water Level Loggers

Global Water WL16 Water Level Loggers

The WL16, Water Level Logger, is a datalogger and submersible pressure transducer combination designed for remote monitoring and recording of water level or pressure data. The water level logger can record over 81,000 readings and has four unique recording options, fast (10 samples per second), programmable interval (1 second to multiple years), logarithmic, and exception. Multiple depth ranges are available from 3 to 500 feet of water level change. A 25 ft vented cable is standard on all water level loggers, and optional cable lengths are available from the factory up to 2000 ft.

10MHz ADV

SonTek 10-MHz ADV®

The SonTek ADV is a single point, high resolution Doppler current meter which provides 3-D velocity measurements in a remotely sampled volume. The ADV is a bistatic Doppler current meter. The term bistatic refers to the fact that the ADV uses separate acoustic transducers to transmit and receive sound energy. The ADV transmitter generates sound with most of the energy concentrated in a tight cylindrical volume, while the receivers are the most sensitive to sound coming from a slightly broader angular range. The transducers are mounted such that their beams intersect over a volume located some distance away, called sampling volume. This document presents a basic description of the effects of the finite sampling volume on the accuracy of the velocity measurements.

16MHz Micro ADV

SonTek 16-MHz MicroADV

The SonTek 16-MHz MicroADV (Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter) is the most significant breakthrough in 3-axis (3D) current meter technology since the original SonTek ADV.

The higher acoustical frequency of 16 MHz makes the MicroADV the optimal instrument for laboratory work. Like all SonTek instruments, the MicroADV is extremely simple to set up and use. Most users are taking high-quality data within minutes of receiving the system.
