UVP method can be used in any field of fluid dynamics where an accurate and flexible flow velocity measurement method is required. Although UVP method is the ultimate option for opaque liquids it is still very widely used in water flows due to its easy implementation.

UVP users are found in the following areas typically :

  • Hydraulics : fittings, transportation design, flowrate measurement
  • Environmental : sediment, sewage flows, turbidity current, debris flow, wave study
  • Processes : oil transport, food, paper production, rheology, non-Newtonian flows, liquid metals
  • Fundamental fluid mechanics : convection, turbulence, magnetic flows, Taylor Couette study

Thanks to its remote-control concept being monitored by users' personal computers, it can be easily exchanged between various users at a given institution.
