A low cost, lightweight alternative to larger flow meters, it is purpose-built for applications where the superior durability and depth rating of Valeport’s larger meters is not necessary. The instrument is manufactured from titanium and polymers, giving excellent resistance to corrosion, whilst maintaining a small size and low weight. Utilising the standard Valeport 125mm diameter impeller, the Model 106 features speed and direction parameters as standard, with further options of temperature and depth. Data (logged or real time) is compatible with Valeport’s DataLog™ software.
