Product Description

Descripción

The discharge measurement is performed by using the proven tracer-dilution method and is especially suitable for high volumes of water. It can be deployed in turbulent rivers, creeks or waters for which data regarding the cross-section profile are not available. As a tracer a fluorescent material is used. After insertion of a known amount of tracer material two optical fluorescence probes are determining the discharge.

FEATURES AND ADVANTAGES

  • Simple, mobile discharge measurement
  • Reliable results even without knowledge and independent of the cross-section profile
  • Suitable for fast-flowing, turbulent waters or where access is limited
  • Applied especially with water amounts of several m³/s
  • Environmentally friendly, harmless for water
  • Discharge values immediately available
  • Easy transmission of measurement data form the sensor to receiving device via Bluetooth
  • Convenient receiving of data on laptop
  • Real-time visualisation of measurement data
  • User-friendly guidance through the measurement by the included software TQ-Commander
  • Simultaneous measurement with up to four probes
  • Tracer material: fluorescence (fluorescein or similar)
  • Probe type: optical fluorescence probe
  • Compact and convenient: complete equipment securely packed in two cases
