LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California USA


LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California, recently extended its popular FlowQuest acoustic current profiler line to include the small and lightweight FlowQuest 2000 system. The FlowQuest 2000 system operates at 2 MHz with a blank distance as short as 10 cm. The system is about 12.6 cm in diameter, 21.0 cm in length and weighs less than 1.4 kgs in water. The FlowQuest 2000 system is capable of reaching up to 20 meters in range with an accuracy of up to 0.25% +/- 2.5 mm/s. The standard depth rating of the system is 800 meters with options for 100, 1500, 3000 and 6000 meters. This system also has an optional discharge measurement function. The FlowQuest 2000 acoustic current profiler is ideal for measuring discharge, currents and flows in shallow waters or for short range applications. It is particularly useful when a minimum blank distance is desirable. Click for more FlowQuest information.

LinkQuest has received a record number of orders for its FlowQuest line of acoustic current profilers in 2009. Recently, an extensive line of models were purchased by worldwide customers for a large number of diverse applications. The Universidad de Cadiz of Spain purchased two 1500-meter rated FlowQuest 75 ultra long-range acoustic current profilers for oceanographic applications. The FlowQuest 75 current profiler operates at 75 kHz and is capable of reaching 900 meters of range. Electec N.V. at St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles, has installed a FlowQuest 1000H system for horizontal current measurement in a harbor where the dock master monitors the current speed and water depth during docking of large cruise ships. The First Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration, China, has purchased a second FlowQuest 150 long-range acoustic current profiler along with SoundLink underwater acoustic modems for a moored oceanographic application. LinkQuest has also supplied Kookmin University of South Korea with a FlowQuest 600 current profiler with WaveQuest directional wave measurement function for measuring currents and waves in coastal waters near South Korea. The Institute of Coastal and Offshore Engineering of Vietnam has purchased a FlowQuest 1000 system for measuring coastal currents and waves, and for performing discharge measurement. Sales of the single-beam FlowScout 2000 acoustic flow meters have also picked up from several countries. These systems have been extensively used for measuring flows in irrigation channels and rivers for water resource management. Click for more FlowQuest information.
