I love working with SoundWater’s flowmeters because they’re fast, efficient, and easy to use.

ProSlide is a global leader in water ride design and manufacturing. Using precise equipment and processes to test the flow of their water rides, ProSlide relies on SoundWater’s Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter to deliver the most accurate reading.

The Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter is a lightweight and easy-to-use alternative to older flowmeters. ProSlide uses the ultrasonic flowmeter to get accurate flow readings when setting up new rides, as well as during customer service calls and inspections on rides. In addition to accuracy, simplicity is another aspect of the Orcas that allows ProSlide to set up the flowmeter and get a reading in under one minute.

“I love working with SoundWater’s flowmeters because they’re fast, efficient, and easy to use,” shared Laurent Menard, Ride Path Engineering Specialist with ProSlide. “They don’t rest on their laurels and are always looking for feedback and new features to make their product’s experience even better.”

Two real-world examples of how Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter have assisted ProSlide on the job:

1) Non-Intrusive Maintenance: On a routine check of a park’s flows, ProSlide identified disparities between where the flows should be and where they actually were. Using the Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter, ProSlide identified that several of the impellers in the park’s pumps were worn down and some had almost no blades left. By using the Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter, ProSlide was able to quickly identify the issue and remedy the situation without affecting the park’s day-to-day operations.

2) Easy to Use, Easy to Ship: The Orcas Flowmeter’s light weight and ease of use has made it a prudent solution when ProSlide needs to test a park’s water flow. In some instances, ProSlide has directly shipped the Orcas Flowmeter to clients when simple flow measurements need to be identified, since its intuitive use allows it to be operated by someone without extensive training. Shipping the Orcas Flowmeter directly to clients has proven to be a timely and cost-effective troubleshooting solution for ProSlide and for parks desiring a simple way to test their flows.

"We are focused on 'speed' in every aspect of our products," shared Jeff Peery, Founder and CEO of SoundWater Technologies. "Every time we reduce the amount of time required to use our products they become easier to use, and our customers more effective at their jobs."

When working in the field, time and simplicity are often the most important factors. SoundWater’s Orcas Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter directly addresses these factors with its ease of use, portability, and quick set up time. ProSlide continues to rely on the SoundWater Orcas Ultrasonic Flowmeter for simple and quick in-the-field flow readings that make measuring flow hassle free.
