  • Proven water flow and water level devices

    Proven water flow and water level devices

    Our portfolio contains electro-mechanical current meters in standard size and miniaturised models which use either fan or cup type current propellers. Increasingly popular are the non-contact radar discharge measurement systems. And for specialist applications, several models of tipping bucket flow gauges are at hand.

    Appropriate accessories such as electronic counters and wading rods are available. A range of positioning and towing systems for current meters or acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCPs) enable more safety for staff taking measurements.

    In addition, our portfolio of precision water level sensors includes radar level sensors, level pressure sensors with full temperature compensation, float operated absolute shaft encoders, and maintenance-free, desiccant-free, self-contained compressor systems and bubblers. Accurate surface water and groundwater level data are transmitted via several outputs (RS232, 4-20mA or SDI-12). These rugged devices are designed with low-maintenance demand.

    Available accessories include large volume gas chamber orifices, float pulleys, counterweights, beaded lines, and more.

  • Single and multi-parameter water quality probes

    Single and multi-parameter water quality probes

    Our water quality monitoring devices are perfectly fit for natural water, drinking water, wastewater and other various industrial applications. Single probes and multi-parameter probes include radiometers, photometers and fluorometers.

    KISTERS also engineers and manufactures tailor-made monitoring systems like the iBox Water Quality. The robust fully configured all-in-one solution combines several water quality sensors to measure nitrate, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), dissolved organic carbon (DOC), algae / Chlrophyll-a (Chl-a), cyanobacteria / Phycocyanin, turbidity, pH, etc. and an iRIS 270 datalogger for data transmission.
