Virtual Polymer Compounds offers a full line of standard flumes, such as Parshall Flumes, Palmer Bowlus Flumes, H Flumes, Trapezoidal Flumes, along with countless custom structures used for open channel flow measurement. Sizes are available to measure everything from an intermittent trickle to a consistent canal. Cutthroat & Montana Flumes are available by request.
The Palmer Bowlus metering flume has been widely used for measuring water and wastewater in open channels or pipelines that are not under any pressure. This flume is normally installed in a "U" shaped channel fed by a pipeline such as storm drains and sewers. This convenient flume requires little redesign or special modification of circular conduits for installation.
Rather than try to make the flow application fit a particular type of flume, we carefully analyze the parameters so we can select an appropriate flume for the application. Options and modifications are available to ensure that the customer's requirements are fully met, and that additional instruments are easily interfaced with the flumes.
