Hach FH950 Portable Velocity Flowmeter

NEW!  The Hach FH950 is the successor to the popular Marsh Model 2000. Now with the FH950 the standard unit comes with portable velocity measurement, with a further (firmware and sensor upgrade) option to have integrated depth measurements (new feature /optional feature).

Now with a standard disconnectable sensor, the FH950 is versatile in that you can buy sensors of different cable lengths to suit your needs: 5ft, 20ft, 40ft, 100ft and switch between sensors easily.

For more information about this device please click >> FH950 - Portable Flowmeter Inquiry to receive your customized quotation and full product brochure.

** Standard FH950 includes sensor with only velocity measurement (5ft cable standard)

** Option for FH950 to include both velocity and depth measurement is optional.

For FH950 existing users who want to upgrade their existing FH950 devices to handle both the new velocity and depth sensors, they only need to do a free firmware update to their FH950 device and then purchase a new sensor that measures both velocity and depth. If you have further questions, send us an email for more details.


See the difference the new FH 950 makes!
  • Reduce man-hours 50% --the step by step user interface simplifies programming, delivers real time data, and downloads direct to PC -- allowing a single person to take the readings and eliminating post site visit manual data transfer from log book to PC
  • Automatically calculates total discharge based on USGS and ISO methods--reduces time to manually calculate and likelihood of errors
  • Real-time velocity graphed on color displaygiving a quick visual reading of velocity trends
  • The color bar indicator on the display guides the user to position the sensor at the ideal depth location, making accurate depth measurement collection easy
  • One of the lowest maintenance solutions on the market electromagnetic velocity sensor with no moving parts never requires mechanical maintenance
  • Lightweight, rugged portable meter—only 1.5 pounds
  • Water resistant electronics
  • Rechargeable portable meter
  • Data Storage for up to 10 profiles and 32 stations per profile
  • Easy-to-use menu-driven interface display remains readable even in bright sunlight

Ideal Applications include:
  • Rivers
  • Weir/Flume/Flow Meter Calibration
  • Sewers
  • Mining Channels
  • Irrigation Channels
  • Ideal for use in waters with organic matter; the magnetic inductive measurement principle is not negatively affected by these conditions like acoustics or mechanical meters



The Popular Flo-Dar Open Channel Flowmeter!

Flo-Dar is the Way to Go!


Introducing the state-of-art, Flo-Dar Radar Based Flowmeter, the perfect solution for difficult flows (Large Man Made Channels, Flows with High Solids, High Temperature Flows, Shallow Flows, High Velocities, and Caustic Flows). Finally, troublesome maintenance caused by sensor fouling is virtually eliminated with the Flo-Dar! The Flo-Dar utilizes proven radar velocity sensing technology to measure flow from above the fluid.

Shown here to the left is a typical installation for the Marsh McBirney Flo-Dar using a temporary mount. For additional information, click the link below to jump directly to Marsh-McBirney's corporate web page.

Open Channel and Closed Conduit Flowmeter Applications.

Flo-Mate Model 2000 (now discontinued, and replaced with the Hach FH950)

Marsh McBirney has an excellent line of portable Electromagnetic Flowmeters including the popular Flo-Mate Model 2000. The popular Model 2000 utilizes a magnetic sensor based on Faraday's Law for superior accuracy and reliability. A favorite among municipalities and industry experts. Ideal device for calibration of weirs, flumes and other primary devices. Sensors also available for full pipe applications. Electromagnetic sensors are perfect for clean water and also process water applications and perform where traditional doppler type sensors fail as they require sediment in the flow.
