ADS AV|Max monitoring sensor
The AV|Max is the newest sensor in ADS Environmental Services’ flow monitoring sensor family. The AV|Max is an area-velocity sensor for the ADS TRITON+ monitors. The wetted sensor is installed directly in the pipe flow to provide consistent, high-quality data collection capability. Its low-profile, impact-resistant polycarbonate housing with recessed sensors brings new levels of durability in sewer flows. The sensor design is tested and proven to collect accurate and consistent data in depths from 1 to 60 inches and in flows of up to 30 feet per second. In areas of intermittent no-flows (dry-pipe) ADS recommends the AV|Max Sensor can be used in combination with one of ADS’ non-contact sensors. The sensor measures four key parameters: depth — using ultrasonic UpDepth, depth — pressure, velocity — continuous wave ultrasonic Doppler and water temperature. 877-237-9585;
