The Best Performance of all Non-Contact, Open-Channel Flowmeters
LaserFlow® certified to MCERTS Class 2 – exceeding performance of all other non-contact open-channel flowmeters
September 13, 2021
Teledyne ISCO received Class 2 MCERTS certification for the LaserFlow® non-contact, sub-surface velocity sensing flowmeter. This Class 2 certification, issued by the CSA under the Sira Certification Service, certifies that the LaserFlow® Flowmeter is the only non-contact, area velocity, open-channel flowmeter capable of this superior performance. Unlike other non-contact, open-channel flowmeters that measure surface velocity, LaserFlow® Flowmeter measures fluid velocity with a laser beam directed at single or multiple points below the surface of the channel or stream providing a truer representation of the actual velocity profile.
For open-channel water and wastewater flow measurement applications in the United Kingdom requiring certification by The Environment Agency, the LaserFlow® Flowmeter now provides users with a MCERTS Class 2 option. The Environment Agency' s MCERTS product certification scheme evaluates products according to the Environment Agency's performance standards, based on relevant CEN, ISO and national standards. Further, the MCERTS Class 2 certified LaserFlow Ex® version, with its rugged, submersible enclosure rated IP68 ingress protection, is also certified for use in hazardous areas defined as Class 1, Div 1, Zone 0 and ATEX category 1G.
LaserFlow® and LaserFlow Ex® flowmeters are ideal for a broad range of water and wastewater applications especially where superior flow measurement performance is required. These flowmeters join Teledyne ISCO's wide range of MCERTS certified open-channel flowmeters and automatic samplers.
