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
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.
