This non-contact, laser velocimeter
employs Laser Doppler Shift Technology to offer accurate and repeatable measurements of speed and length Contact: 1-508-832-3456
The laser velocimeter, a non-invasive technique for obtaining point velocity measurements in fluids, is characterized by linearity of output over its operating range that is relatively wide in terms of velocity.
In situations where established measurement methods are deemed to be unsuitable or unreliable, the laser velocimeter may provide a simple means of determining the flow accurately.
For tube and pipe production processes, POLYTEC's complete suite of Laser Velocimeters
deliver superior precision for length and speed measurements compared to conventional contact measurement techniques.
Paul, Minn., developed the Laservec diode velocimeter to take flow measurements more easily and conveniently than with costlier and bulkier research laser velocimeters.
The Laservec is aimed at the flow diagnostic applications in chemical and pharmaceutical processing, and the electronic cooling and testing in wind and water tunnels that are often served by argon ion laser velocimeters. The latter devices produce the tri-colored beams - green, blue, and violet - needed to differentiate the three axes of velocity, namely up and down, in and out, and side to side.
