FlowControl-Lab is a computer-controlled 3-way valve system for use in flow-through applications on board research vessels or for dock-side sampling.
The system periodically diverts water from the vessel’s flow-through system through a cartridge filter. The periodically filtered measurements allow for high-accuracy differential measurements of particle properties, for example absorption.
FlowControl-Lab is NOT submersible. A submersible version of the FlowControl is available. It is called FlowControl-Sub and is rated to 500 m depth.
