Flow Rate Sensor

Flow Rate Sensor

Flow Rate Sensor

$129.00

The Flow Rate Sensor measures the velocity of water in studying the discharge, flow patterns, and sediment transport of a stream or river.

ORDER CODE: FLO-BTA Category

The Flow Rate Sensor can be used for environmental or Earth science studies. Flow rate data can be used to calculate the discharge value for a stream or determine the sediment transport of a stream. The Flow Rate Sensor includes 3 riser rods, which enable the impeller to be placed at fixed depths, and is equipped with a 5 m cable so your data-collection equipment can stay on shore. The Flow Rate Sensor also separates into four sections for easy transport and convenient storage.
