  • Facts About Nested Flumes

    When you need to accurately measure flow in your operation, the best tool that you can choose is a flume. However, there are certain situations where a single flume won’t suffice, such as when you need to measure a range of flows. Fortunately, if you want to measure different flow ranges using flumes, you have the option of using nested, or dual range flumes. ...

  • Sediment deposit thickness and its effect on critical velocity for incipient motion

    The understanding of how the sediment deposit thickness influences the incipient motion characteristic is still lacking in the literature. Hence, the current study aims to determine the effect of sediment deposition thickness on the critical velocity for incipient motion. An incipient motion experiment was conducted in a rigid boundary rectangular flume of 0.6 m width with varying sediment ...

  • Verification of equations for incipient motion studies for a rigid rectangular channel

    The current study aims to verify the existing equations for incipient motion for a rigid rectangular channel. Data from experimental work on incipient motion from a rectangular flume with two different widths, namely 0.3 and 0.6 m, were compared with the critical velocity value predicted by the equations of Novak & Nalluri and El-Zaemey. The equation by El-Zaemey performed better with an ...

  • Plasti-fab head gages are durable enough to withstand gunshots and vandalism

    Plasti-Fab Gages are primarily used in secluded, often rural settings, such as flumes, weirs, reservoirs, basins, lagoons, waterways and other applications. In these locations they have year-round, sustained exposure to all of the natural elements. The PlastiFab ...

  • Potato Flume Water 1

    This client transports potatoes from their receiving dock to the processing area of the plant in a water flume. This process removes the dirt from the fields. The pH was 6.3 and did not require pH adjustment. The sample was tested with I, H, and K and it was determined that the K was the best product for clarity, reduced dosage and floc size. The samples were treated with 0.13 grams of Floccin-I, ...

  • Potato Flume Water 2

    The facility was paying to have their water hauled off site as a means of disposal. The facility was using an average of 20,000 gallons/day of fresh water to operate the flume system used to transport the potatoes from the dry storage sheds to the processing room. The flume sump would fill up with solids and required weekly cleaning. The settle dirt and organic material created a bad odor and an ...
