  • A measurement system Type NivuFlow 750 has been used.
  • To detect low volumes, the first sensor has been installed in the dry weather flume. Sensors 2 and 3 have been installed left and right of the dry weather flume on the side step. In combination with sensor 1 they detect flow velocities at higher levels or the discharge of combined water.


  • Quick and easy programming due to pre-set channel shapes.
  • Utilisation of 2 analog outputs using appropriate scales for dry weather and rainy weather and hence high resolution of readings.
