You might be surprised to learn that I was once a cover model for a widely circulated publication. You'll be less surprised to learn that the publication in question was the Marsh-McBirney Flo-Mate Instruction Manual
and the image of me
is a bit hard to recognize. So, what got me thinking about this? After more than 25 years and many thousands of units sold we are retiring the Model 2000 Flo-Mate. It's been a reliable workhorse for so many of you but frankly it's also in need of an upgrade. So while we say goodbye to the Flo-Mate, we say hello to the Hach FH950
. You're going to love this thing. Why? Here's a few features you've been asking for:
So, check it out
- Step by step user interface simplifies programming
- Delivers real time data, and downloads direct to PC
- Automatically calculates total discharge based on USGS and ISO methods
- Real-time velocity graphed on color display
- Electromagnetic sensor co-developed by Hach and Larry Marsh
. We started shipping this week.
Speaking of retiring... I'll take this opportunity to announce the retirement at the end of this month of a long-time Marsh-McBirney and Hach employee, Tom Mulleady
. Many of you will recognize Tom's name (and probably his voice) - as he has served as Customer Support Manager for quite some time. Tom has worked for us for over 18 years - originally from 1974-1981 as Marsh-McBirney's first sales manager. He returned in 2001 to head up Customer Service.
Tom is a tireless supporter of our customers and their specific needs. I have learned a lot from him over the years and will miss having him at the helm in Customer Service. That said, I am also delighted that his responsibilities will be assumed by Ian Morrison. While Tom's shoes will be tough to fill, I have no doubt that Ian is the one to do it.
