Flow rate measurement with FLOWBOX flow meter and Parshall P flume


FLOWBOX ultrasonic flow meter with Parshall measuring flume


The subject of our offer is a Parshall flume intended for measuring momentary and total flow of the liquid in gravitational channels, with the use of an ultrasonic flow meter FLOWBOX . Upon request, it’s also possible to carry out pre-investment technical consulting, as well as subsequent installation, launching* and protocol-based delivery of flow meter for the use. We also sell individual elements of the measuring set manufactured by us (e.g. only Parshall flume or only flow meter FLOWBOX).


* Launching of our ultrasonic flow meter FLOWBOX in your facility (unlike many products of the competition) is very simple and in most cases, it doesn’t require a visit of specialized service – we provide factory pre-programmed (for the given type of flume or measuring weir) and pre-calibrated set (only one parameter needs to be adjusted).

Parshall flume with FLOWBOX flowmeter



The liquid flow rate measurement with Parshall flume and water rise method in rectangular channels is based on the actual liquid level measured by the ultrasonic sensor (radar sensor, optional) at the hydraulic structure converted into the value of flow ratio by the measuring transmitter.

The basic condition to apply the method is to provide, undisturbed and laminar flow in a measuring flume and free outflow of liquid from the measuring flume.


Set design - P flumes------------


Parshall flumes in accordance with ISO 9826 data sheet are intended for measurement of volumetric flow rate in rectangular channels with gravity flow. The flumes are made of stainless steel or PVC sheets and enable measurements within the range specified in the table below.

The flume is embedded in concrete in a rectangular channel with subcritical flow. The conditions can be obtained by maintaining a specific gradient and minimum inlet and outlet channel length. The measurement in lower range for a specific flume type will be encumbered with a significant error.
