Under Ice Rod

HyQuest Solutions’ Under Ice Rod is the ideal device for measuring discharge of streams under ice.

It is a universal tool that has been designed specifically for deployment of various brands of ADCPs and mechanical meters. It provides the client with a unique set of adaptors to suit all make and models of ADCP and current meters used for this application. Simply put your ADCP or meter on the appropriate adapter and start the measurement under ice.

The Under Ice Rod can also be used as an orientation tool which tells the client the device is pointing directly into the flow. It has been developed in close partnership with Water Survey Canada hydrographers. Thus, it meets the users’ requirements on a very high level.
