Isco 750 Area Velocity Flow Module Get Quote
 
Question?

 

 

The sensor on the 750 module uses patented Doppler technology to directly measure average velocity in the flow stream. An integral pressure transducer measures liquid depth to determine flow area. The 6712 sampler then calculates flow rate by multiplying the area of the flow stream by its average velocity.

The 750 gives you greater accuracy in applications where weirs or flumes are not practical, or where submerged, full pipe, surcharged and reverse flow conditions may occur. With area velocity you don’t have to estimate the slope and roughness of the channel. And Isco’s exclusive 500 kHz Doppler penetrates farther into deep flow streams than 1 MHz systems, whose shorter wavelength can cause them to give “nearsighted” velocity measurement in typical wastewater applications. The Doppler system continuously profiles the flow stream, eliminating profiling and calibration required by electromagnetic systems.

Standard Features

  • Sealed Area-Velocity sensor resists fouling by oil and grease. Streamlined shape sheds debris.
  • Choice of standard (10 ft) and extended (30 ft) level measurement range.
  • During the program’s operation, flow, velocity, and level values are viewable on the sampler's LCD display.
  • Level and velocity data stored in the sampler are available for later retrieval, reporting, and graphing using Isco Flowlink® software.

Applications

  • Accurate open channel flow measurement without a weir or flume
  • Pretreatment Compliance
  • Stormwater Runoff Monitoring
  • Permit Enforcement
  • Sewer Flow Monitoring
  • Combined Sewer Overflow Studies
  • Inflow and Infiltration Studies
  • River and Stream Gauging

Options and Accessories

  • Choice of Standard and Low Profile Area Velocity Sensors.
    - Standard Sensor is recommended for larger pipes and turbid flows with high concentrations of suspended solids and entrained air.
    - Low Profile Sensor is recommended for shallows flows, typically down to 1" (25 mm).
  • Isco mounting rings make it easy to install the area velocity sensor in round pipes, manhole inverts, and other open channels.
  • Isco Street Level Installation Tool to install monitoring system from ground level, eliminating the costs and hazards of confined space entry.
