The RBC flume has been developed especially for use in smaller streams (irrigation canals, inlets and drains, trenches, etc.). It is a simple and reliable instrument for measuring the amount of water for irrigation flowing into a field. The standard range includes measuring channels with different measuring ranges, ranging from 0.1-8.7 l / s to 2.0-145 l / s.
Larger measuring ranges can also be provided on request. In order to obtain accurate measuring results, it is essential that the measuring channel is set up in such a way that it is exactly horizontal and that the water can flow out of the measuring channel without hindrance on the measuring channel. The value of the water rise can be read in the measuring instrument (measuring cylinder) at the end of the measuring channel. The flow rate (the flow rate) is calculated using standard formulas.
Instead of reading the measuring cylinder, you can also install a pressure sensor and connect it to a data logger.
This allows measurement (or activation), storage and readout to be carried out automatically. In an automatic flume the threshold of the water level is recorded with a very precise pressure sensor which is connected to a data logger.
