Hach Flow FloDar Can Endure the Toughest Storm Conditions


The Avanti Company prides itself on giving valued customers the best that metering technology has to offer. That is why we are pleased to offer the state-of-the-art Flow Meter Products of Hach, one of the world’s leading specialists on flow monitoring and diagnostic solutions.

Among the many testaments of Hach’s tireless innovation are the Hach FL900 and Flo-Dar Sensor, which have helped Utilities across the country enjoy unparalleled efficiency, cost-savings, and peace of mind. As a recent white paper makes very clear, these products are as tough as they are accurate: even the deluge of Tropical Storm Nicole, which poured up to 10 inches of rain in a 24-hour period, could not hinder with either product’s performance in Pennsylvania.

In 2010, the storm caused record-high flooding of the city sewer system, creating conditions that ordinarily damage or interfere with meters and monitoring technology. But neither the FL900 nor the Flo-Dar ceased operation: in fact, both continued to function 100 percent during and after the storm.

In fact, the Flo-Dar managed to accurately measure flow during both the free-flow period and the 36-hour surcharge; meanwhile, the FL900 recorded that data and posted it to Hach’s FSDATA system, a web-based, flow data management software.

Few other metering solutions on the market could withstand such extreme conditions, let alone continue to offer crucial monitoring services. The Avanti Company is proud to carry such top-of-the-line products in our inventory. With their capacity to endure some of the worst and most unpredictable external conditions, Hach metering solutions like the FL900 and Flo-Dar are a worthy investment for any Utility.
