NivuSmart Q is a new measurement method for flow rate detection using two parallel level readings. The levels are measured in a known distance, e.g. by measuring in two consecutive shafts within a sewer system. The NIVUS exclusive metering system is putting geometrical conditions (such as slope, diameter and width of a channel etc.) and latest hydraulic flow models in relation to each other.
By using site-specific equations it is possible to compute flow rates with a remarkably high accuracy. The accuracy is comparable to other non-contact flow measurement systems. Calibrating the system provides an extra increase in accuracy.
Level measurements and GPRS data loggers are battery-powered.
The level readings are transmitted automatically to a centralised data management system.
NIVUS offers NivuSmart Q as a complete package. We provide site assessment, installation of the measurement system, commissioning as well as monitoring from one single source.
You can therefore be sure that all required conditions are in place.
The NivuSmart Q flow measurement method is based on hydraulic findings. The project was initiated in the 2000s by Professor José Vazquez of the University of Strasbourg.
As a part of this project many studies (Vazquez et al., 2006; Isel et al., 2012; Dufresne et al., 2014) and master theses (Montandon, 2005; Solliec, 2006) as well as a PhD thesis (Isel, 2014) have been published. The measurement method of the University of Strasbourg is legally protected. NIVUS are exclusive licence holder.
