Developed in 1960 at the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station, the 1-inch Parshall flume is commonly used to measure water flowing in creeks, furrows, irrigation canals, and channels.

Galvanized steel should never be used on sanitary flows. 

Material of Construction: 

  • Galvanized steel 

Flow Rates:  

  • 0.0033 - 0.1945 cfs (cubic feet / second)

  • 0.0021 - 0.1257 mid (US million gallons / day)

Flow Accuracy:

  • +/- 2-5% (ASTM D1941)

Flow Formula (H = feet):

  • Q (cfs) = 0.338 * H^1.55 
  • Q (gpm) = 151.7 * H^1.55
  • Q (mgd) = 0.2184 * H^1.55

Head:
