Over the last 10 years, flow monitoring specialists, Detectronic, have built a solid reputation for their highly reliable and easy-to-use monitoring system, the MSFM. The R&D team has now launched a successor to that system, the MSFM S2.5.
The new MSFM S2.5 offers new functionality, increased data storage capacity and improved technology to measure both depth and flow. It includes an integrated temperature sensor, improved depth measurement, on-board flow calculation, a flow proportional sampler output and a 2G + 3G capable modem for the additional benefit of overseas customers, particularly those located in North America where the 2G network has been discontinued.
“The MSFM S2.5 facilitates even more accurate flow monitoring,” explains Nick Bennett, development manager for Detectronic. “The in-built temperature sensor is ideal for monitoring many different sources of effluent that may enter an effluent stream. This means the MSFM S2.5 is particularly well suited to flow survey monitoring in coastal sites where infiltration from seawater can easily be observed with a temperature changes at high tide.”
Adds Nick: “Flow proportional sampling has, historically, been difficult to set up in many locations but not with the MSFM S2.5. It can be set up with ease to facilitate on the spot sampling as and when required as a result of being able to calculate flow within the monitor itself. The inclusion of new processing technology also ensures that depth measurement is more accurate than ever before.”
Concludes Dave Walker, commercial director for Detectronic: “Our R&D team has spent over two years developing the MSFM S2.5 and we are delighted to see their hard work come to fruition with this launch. The MSFM S2.5 offers a wide range of new opportunities for our clients, and our business, with its new, additional functionality, improved accuracy and enhanced communication technology.”
Available to purchase or hire and suited to both permanent installation and short-term surveys, the MSFM S2.5, offers the ultimate monitoring solution for a wide variety of sites and applications.
