Dynasonics IS-4000 Open Channel Flow Meter
An economical open-channel flow meter, IS-4000 measures level, flow rate and total volume of water flowing through weirs and flumes. The meter includes a non-contact ultrasonic level sensor to detect the water level and then calculates the flow rate and total volume using the Gauckler-Manning or other equations based on characteristics of the channel.
Based on empirical formulas, the IS-4000 calculates the flow rate based on the geometry of the channel or primary device and water depth. The level sensor measures the depth of the water used in the calculation.
Open channels with a primary device are a cost effective solution for managing varying flow rates in unpressurized systems. The IS-4000 flow meter performs best when used with a primary device, such as a flume or weir, and where the sediment does not build up.
- Precise Measurements. Measures water level, flow rate and total volume with a single device and retains a historical log of all measurements.
- Reliable Operation. Features preprogrammed tables to simplify setup and calculates flow rate based on the geometry of the channel or primary element and water depth.
- Application Flexibility. Performs best where sediment does not build up, including flow into water treatment plants, storm and sanitary sewer systems and industrial discharge applications.
