River Flow Rate Measurement using Radar Sensor

Application Problem: A customer required a solution to reliably monitor the flow rate of a river.

Application History: The application was challenging to monitor as the water surface was turbulent and often covered with foam that made measurement difficult.

Solution: ABM’s non-contact radar level sensor was selected for the application to measure flow rate in the open channel. The radar is proven to eliminate foam influence by suppressing the echo from the top of the foam and detecting only the echo from the water surface. ABM’s radar sensor provides reliable, maintenance free measurement.
