Flow Measurement with Pontoon


  • This task has been solved using a floating measurement array. The flow here is detected by using the cross correlation measurement method (NivuFlow 750).
  • The floating sensor calculates the flow volume from the detected flow level and the flow profile. Sedimentation layers are detected and compensated automatically.


  • The mechanical components have been manufactured at reasonable costs on behalf of the customer according to NIVUS specifications.
