Aluminum H Flumes can be a good choice where resistance to abrasion or physical damage is required but where the flume must be light enough to move from site-to-site or to a remote area. Aluminum H Flumes are most commonly used to measure edge-of-field runoff, watersheds, and mine dewatering flows.
Abrasion / Damage Resistance
The heavy duty construction of Openchannelflow aluminum H flumes provides good resistance to abrasion by flow stream sediments and damage by physical abuse. This resistance to damage is particularly useful in mine dewatering applications.
Aluminum H Flumes weigh about as much as a similar fiberglass ones - at about 2 to 2.5 lbs/ft2 [9.8 to 12.2 kg/m2], meaning that they are easily handled, are more portable, and require less manpower / equipment to install than other metal constructed H flumes.
