Open-channel flow measurement

The ultrasonic way to monitor open channels

Measuring liquid flow in channels with free surfaces is a unique challenge requiring specialized technology – and Siemens delivers. SITRANS L non-contacting ultrasonic level products provide continuous monitoring of wet wells, flumes and weirs by way of level-to-flow calculations. Our highly accurate devices for open-channel flow range from the SITRANS Probe LU240 compact transmitter to the MultiRanger, HydroRanger and SITRANS LUT400 controller series. For added confidence, the HydroRanger and LUT400 series are MCERTS-certified.

Intelligence based on experience

Albert Einstein once said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” Einstein knew that all the flashy bells and whistles in the world can’t make up for knowledge gained through experience – through the bumps and bruises, dirt and grime, and real-life conditions that a piece of technology needs in order to be truly innovative. Siemens level technology has this experience. Our video shows you how the intelligence built into our level devices truly makes the difference!
