Industries & Applications
Surface & Groundwater
Surface water can be affected by land use, agricultural practices, pollution and climate change. As you already know, monitoring and treatment of surface water requires significant investments in time and money. These investments and public health may be jeopardized if surface water changes during extreme events or contamination. SonTek and other Xylem instruments work to provide a continuous and comprehensive record of water quantity and quality. Our instruments provide the reliable data you need to act quickly, work efficiently and reduce costs.
Irrigation Canals & Turnouts
The demand for monitoring flow in open channels has evolved. Climate change and water scarcity issues have increased the demand to quantify increasingly smaller flows. In the past, the irrigation community has applied a variety of technologies that might have been "close enough". But today, smart water management authorities know that collecting precise data means saving time, money and our worlds most previous resource - water.
The award-winning SonTek-IQ is an intelligent acoustic Doppler instrument specifically designed for measuring flow in open channels. The innovative five-beam design incorporates a vertical beam and four velocity profiling beams, which work in tandem providing data that important water management decisions are based upon.
Ocean & Coastal
Sometimes all you need is a little insight into waves, tides, and currents. However, other projects require sophisticated, complex and long-term ocean monitoring solutions involving a multi-faceted approach to data collection.
Whether in shallow coastal environments, or deep blue ocean, Xylem provides solutions for environmental research used in oceanographic, hydrographic and climate research markets. Aanderaa, SonTek, Waterlog, and YSI deliver the most technologically advanced self-contained and integrated remote underwater observation systems, environmental monitoring buoys, telemetry, water quality and velocity sensors in the world.
