Description

The Model 001 and Model 002 open channel flow meters have been shown to be accurate and rugged instruments for use in hydrometric surveys.  The Model  001 and 002 are supplied as standard with a set of wading rods and the option of a suspension kit. Each wading set contains three 50cm stainless steel wading rods, which are engraved in centimeters and colour coded for 1cm, 5cm, and 10cm. The suspension set contains a 35m cable and hanger bar for suspending a sinker weight if necessary. Both systems are supplied with a real time display unit.

The Model 001 & Model 002 Flow Meters represent a standard in open  channel flow measurement. First introduced under the “Braystoke”  brand over 30 years ago, both meters use the simple premise of  converting speed of rotation of the helical impeller into speed of  water. Available as a wading set for hand held use in shallow water,  or as a hand suspension system for use from bridges or boats, the  Models 001 & 002 offer a quick, cost-effective method of measuring  flow in a variety of open channel applications.
