SonTek’s exclusive ADV technology has not only simplified traditional flow measurements, but it has taken the FlowTracker into applications previously unthinkable with conventional current meters. It can accurately measure a range of velocities from 0.003 to 16 ft/s and can be used in just 1″ of water!
The FlowTracker improves traditional flow measurements in numerous ways. No calibration is needed, and it requires virtually no maintenance due to a durable design and a lack of moving parts. Furthermore, no estimation of the angle of flow is needed for discharge measurements. Data is stored on an internal recorder and later downloaded to a PC. Additionally, the FlowTracker automatically calculates quality control data to ensure accuracy.
The FlowTracker supports several methods for determining velocity including the 0.6 and 0.2/0.8 depth methods. Discharge is calculated with the push of a button using USGS/ISO algorithms. Featuring provisions for starting edges, multiple channels, and even ice-covered water, it is ready for any situation. Applications include velocity measurements in natural streams, mining channels, weirs/flumes, open channels, irrigation, water treatment, stormwater, and lakes.
