Dye Dilution Testing is one of the most accurate methods to measure flow in open channels. It has been utilized on thousands of flow measurement tests worldwide for many years. Common applications include final effluent flumes and weirs, rivers and streams and contact time testing in water and wastewater treatment plants.

SFE Global uses a concentration of dye to inject into a water, wastewater or industrial effluent stream at a precise flow rate and concentration. The diluted concentration of fluorescence of the sample is measured downstream by a highly accurate analytical instrument. The dilution factor is utilized to accurately calculate a flow rate for that specific test section.

Many regulatory agencies recommend that permanent open channel flow monitoring systems be calibrated in-situ utilizing the dye dilution method. Ensure you are in compliance will all regulations by having SFE to verify your environmental reporting installations.
