(Huntsville, AL) - ADS® Environmental Services announces the newest flow monitor in the FlowShark™ family of versatile and reliable flow monitors. The FlowShark HV hand-held velocity monitor is designed for use in open channels including wastewater conduits, irrigation channels, and streams. Utilizing range gated Doppler technology, the hand-held FlowShark HV has many advantages over magnetic sensors and propeller meters.
This unique application of range gated Doppler technology means no mechanically moving parts like propeller meters and the measurements are not affected by grease, oils or a high solids content in the water. The FlowShark HV does not require software, laptop, or calibrations and is accurate to +/- 1% of measurement range. The telescoping aluminum wading rod is easy to operate as is the instantaneous reading display.
“The FlowShark HV is truly a breakthrough in point velocity measurement (PVM) technology,” states Hal Kimbrough, Vice President of Operations for ADS Environmental Services. “It has the unique ability to localize an ultrasonic velocity measurement to a precise point.”
Other features of the FlowShark HV include a long-life rechargeable battery pack, a two-year warranty on all components, and a flexible mounting bracket for monitoring at a variety of angles. The FlowShark family of monitors from ADS also includes: FlowShark with dual channel and IS certification; FlowAlert™ - an overflow alarm system; FlowShark Pulse – a permanent gated cross correlation with digital pattern detection; and a Portable FlowShark Pulse for temporary applications of gated cross correlation technology.
