Micronics UF AV5000

Area-Velocity Flow Meter for Open Channels and Pipes - No Flume or Weir required

  Simple 5-key Calibration
  Three 4-20mA Outputs
  Two Control Relays
  Measures Reverse Flow
  Works in Irregular Channel Shapes

Monitor flow through open channels, partially full sewer pipes and surcharged pipes without a flume or weir. Ideal for municipal stormwater, combined effluent, raw sewage and irrigation water.

The UF AV5000 uses a submerged ultrasonic sensor to continuously measure both Velocity and Level in the channel. The sensor resists fouling, corrosion and abrasion. The flowmeter can be configured with the standard submerged velocity-level sensor, or with submerged velocity plus a separate non-contacting ultrasonic level sensor.

View flowrate and total flow on the large backlit LCD display and connect to external devices with three 4-20mA outputs and two control relays.

Recommended Pipe or Channel Conditions - Careful selection of sensor mounting location results in best performance and maintenance-free operation. Avoid locations where sediment builds up.

Best possible accuracy will result when the water is not highly turbulent and where velocity is evenly distributed across the channel. The channel should not have drops or direction changes immediately upstream of the sensor mounting location. Pipe or channel slope should not exceed 3%.

The UF AV5000 can measure forward flow velocity up to 6 m/sec (20 ft/sec) and reverse flow up to 1.5 m/sec (5 ft/sec). The electronics and software sample and average flow rates continuously to provide stable readings. The submerged velocity/ level sensor will measure flow in partially full and surcharged pipes with pressure up to 10 psi. No special set-up or adjustment is required. Minimum recommended pipe diameter is 150 mm (6").

Alternate Sensor Configurations - The standard sensor measures both velocity and level with a single submerged probe. It is installed in the pipe or channel floor with the stainless steel mounting bracket (supplied), or mounted with an optional stainless steel band for round pipes. Alternate sensor models are available for special applications: a separate non-contacting ultrasonic level sensor with a submerged velocity sensor. Sensor cable can be extended up to 150 m (500 ft).

Easy to Use - The UF AV5000 Area-Velocity Flow Meter measures both Level and Velocity to calculate flow in an open channel or pipe. Calibration is simple: enter the pipe diameter or channel dimensions and the UF AV 5000 automatically computes and displays flow volume.

The ultrasonic sensor mounts inside the pipe or on the bottom of a channel with a stainless steel mounting bracket (included) and a single screw into the bottom of the pipe or channel. No special compounds, tools or hardware are required. The sensor is completely sealed with no orifices or ports.

Custom Channel Shapes - Calibrate the UF AV5000 for installation in irregular or compound channel shapes by entering the channel width at multiple level points through a simple menu. Channels of virtually any shape can be monitored with your choice of measurement units.

Optional 2-Million Point Data Logger - Choose the built-in data logger option if you want the UF AV5000 to store time and date-stamped flow values at 10 second to 60 minute intervals. Daily flow reports are automatically created where total, minimum, maximum and average flow rates are displayed on the LCD display. Transfer log files to any USB flash drive just by connecting to the logger's USB output. Windows software is included to display log files in graph and table formats, change measurement units and generate flow reports. Export data to graphic or text file formats, or directly to Microsoft Excel.
