Issue 008   September 2008

LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California USA


LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California, recently rolled out the FlowScout 2000 acoustic flow meter based on innovative acoustic Doppler technology. The FlowScout 2000 acoustic flow meter is capable of reaching up to 18 meters in range with an accuracy of up to 0.5% +/- 2.0 mm/s. The operating frequency of the FlowQuest 2000 system is 2 MHz. The standard depth rating of the system is 100 meters. The FlowQuest system is typically used to precisely measure water velocities in water channels and pipes. It can be easily installed on an irrigation channel bank, a bridge abutment, a river bank or inside a pipe. LinkQuest has invested extensively in state-of-the-art R&D and production technologies to reduce the overall system cost, and has ensured high cost effectiveness of the FlowScout 2000 system for very large scale deployments for water resource and waste water management. With its highly competitive cost and high accuracy, the FlowScout 2000 system is a perfect choice for long-term real-time monitoring of water flow and velocities in water channels, water pipes, rivers, ports, harbors and estuaries.

The sale of LinkQuest's FlowQuest line of acoustic current profilers has grown rapidly since its introduction. An extensive line of models has been used for a large number of diverse applications worldwide. LinkQuest recently provided Columbia University with a FlowQuest 600 system with WaveQuest directional wave measurement option, bottom tracking option, and Data Fusion function interfacing to a third party sensor and a FlowQuest 300 system with bottom tracking option and Data Fusion function. These systems, along with previously purchased FlowQuest 600 systems, will initially be used in current and wave studies in Indonesian Seas. All profilers are equipped with LinkQuest's acoustic modems for deployment assistance and periodic data collection. LinkQuest has also provided a vessel-mounted FlowQuest 75 ultra long-range acoustic current profiler to a U.S. organization for deepwater water surveying from a surface ship. Taiwan's National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, and a Taiwanese national university, have recently purchased several FlowQuest 300, FlowQuest 600 and FlowQuest 1000 systems for current circulation and directional wave measurement studies. Elcome Marine Services in India has purchased a FlowQuest 600 system for offshore current measurement projects. LinkQuest has also recently provided a FlowQuest 150 vessel-mounted long-range profiler to the Instituto de Investigaciones Pesqueras of Spain for offshore current survey and a FlowQuest 600 acoustic current profiler to C.I.M.A. S.L. in Canary Island.
