Hoskin Scientific has Introduced the Sommer SQ-R flow meter for non-contact and continuous flow measurement. The flow meter measures continuously and contact-free the flow rate of effluent channels, partially filled pipes and technical ducts in industry and water supply.

The SQ-R flow meter is not in contact with the water and can therefore be operated without being affected by debris and entrained solids. With its compact design and versatile mounting options, the company says, it is a suitable choice for flow measurements in manholes of facilities and sewers.

Due to its compact design and flexible mounting device, the sensor is said to very easy to install, for example under bridges or extensions, on ceilings of sewers or in manholes. The non-contact measuring technology has the decisive advantage that the sensor can be mounted above the water level.

Features of the flow meter include:

  • Maintenance-free system
  • Waterproof and resistant housing also for use in aggressive environments
  • Versatile measurement output via RS-485, Modbus, SDI-12, pulse and analog signal
  • Integrated hydraulic model for precise flow calculations
  • Easy configuration with SQ-Commander software
