Venturi Modified -Open Channel & Sewer Flow MonitoringVenturi Modified Open Channel or Full Pipe
The DataGator combines a modified Venturi flow tube design with strategically positioned pressure transducers to accurately and reliably measure flow under all conditions - including transitional periods between open channel and full pipe. The flow measurement is derived from proven hydraulic theories using three distinct pressure readings within the pre-calibrated flow tube.
By translating pressure directly into flow, the DataGator eliminates errors introduced by level and velocity conversions and average velocity calculations. Housed in a submersible NEMA6P enclosure, the DataGator electronics are designed to withstand the harsh sewer environment.
