Research & education

Sometimes without any specific foreseen application, UVP measurement really helps researchers and scientists to discover new phenomena, validate various models in complex liquid flows and experiments.

As ultrasound signals easily travels through both transparent and opaque liquids, sometimes from outside the liquid container, combined with short acquisition time and high spatial resolution, it makes UVP instruments a first choice tool for various research activities. Originally at our foundation in 1990, our UVP instruments were designed “by scientists for scientists”, proposing a versatile tool to address a very wide range of new applications, obtaining the “scientifically-approved” label by an always increasing scientific community worldwide.

Typical applications

Turbulence, thermal convection, multiphase flows, Tailor-Couette flows, instabilities, chaos, bubble flows, gas-liquid flows, rheology, vortex, fluid mechanic education, flow phenomena demonstrations

Typical measured liquids

Water, mercury, liquid Gallium, Lead-Bismuth eutectic
