Open Channel Flow Measurement Combines Laser and Ultrasonic Technologies

Combining Doppler laser velocity measurement with ultrasonic level measurement enables the Teledyne ISCO LaserFlow™ sensor to provide reliable and accurate flow measurement in open channel applications.

Ultrasonic technology is used to determine the depth of the liquid stream and identify a sub-surface point at which to measure velocity. After focusing the sensor's laser on the target, Doppler shift in the returned light is used to calculate the flow velocity. A flow computer combines the information to produce useful flow data.
