Turkey’s Porsuk river concrete dam serves multiple purposes. It produces hydroelectric power and serves as an important reservoir of potable and irrigation water for the city of Eskişehir in north-western Turkey.
In the past, the dam's operator used an open channel flowmeter to determine flow rate and totalized flow. However, this device did not perform as desired and needed to be replaced by a more accurate and reliable flowmeter.
The recommended solution was the OPTISONIC 6300 W ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter. In this case study, learn how this device is designed for permanent flow measurement in applications requiring a non-invasive installation and provides reliable and accurate readings.
