You know what they say about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery? Well, we're feeling pretty flattered these days. For the better part of the last ten years or so we had the only non-contact area/velocity flow meter in the market. That would be Flo-Dar, and as most of you know from experience it revolutionized the sewer flow monitoring industry. It seems that our competitors are the last ones to realize what a good idea it is to keep sensors out of raw sewage. With enough time and a little luck they might be able to offer a product as accurate and reliable as Flo-Dar.

Now, we've always recognized the need for alternatives in selecting appropriate technologies for reliable monitoring. While Flo-Dar is effective in nearly all of the applications you will face, there are times when a submerged depth/velocity sensor and/or a depth only ultrasonic may be needed. Two years ago we redesigned our tried and true sub-AV sensor for use with the Hach FL900 logger platform. Today I'm pleased to announce the release of the newly redesigned in-pipe and down-looking ultrasonic sensors. Our customers now have a complete suite of monitoring technologies available on our most robust logger platform. All of these technologies of course are also available as part of our Data Delivery Services or with web-based remote data hosting.

It's a short month. Make the most of it!

Best regards,
