in life threatening injury and/or damage to facilities.
2.1.4 Confined Space Entry
The following information is provided to guide users of 950 Flow Meters on the dangers and risks
associated with entry into confined spaces.
DANGER
Additional training in Pre-Entry Testing, Ventilation, Entry Procedures, Evacuation/Rescue
Procedures and Safety Work Practices is necessary to ensure against the loss of life in
confined spaces.
On April 15, 1993, OSHA's final ruling on CFR 1910.146, Permit Required Confined Spaces,
became law. This standard directly affects more than 250,000 industrial sites in the United States
and was created to protect the health and safety of workers in confined spaces.
Definition of Confined Space
A Confined Space is any location or enclosure that presents or has the immediate potential to
present one or more of the following conditions:
•
An atmosphere with less than 19.5% or greater than 23.5% oxygen and/or more than 10 ppm
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S).
•
An atmosphere that may be flammable or explosive due to gases, vapors, mists, dusts, or
fibers.
•
Toxic materials which upon contact or inhalation, could result in injury, impairment of health, or
death.
Confined spaces are not designed for human occupancy. They have restricted entry and contain
known or potential hazards.
Examples of confined spaces include manholes, stacks, pipes, vats, switch vaults, and other
similar locations.
Standard safety procedures must always be followed prior to entry into confined spaces and/or
locations where hazardous gases, vapors, mists, dusts, or fibers may be present. Before entering
any confined space check with your employer for procedures related to confined space entry.

2.2 Items Required for Installing and Using the Flow Meter
Batteries
Use only Energizer EN-529, Alkaline, 6 V dc batteries (Cat. No. 3667).
Battery Compartment Desiccant
Use a desiccant cartridge to avoid moisture damage to the batteries and electronics. See
Desiccant Maintenance on page 26 for more information.
Level and Velocity Sensors
Select the level or velocity sensors that best suit your application. For more information, see
Choosing the Appropriate Meter and Sensor Combination on page 11.
Mounting Apparatus
Select the appropriate Logger and Sensor mounting apparatus from Replacement Parts and
Accessories on page 39.
Programming and Data Retrieval Software
These flow meters require the use of InSight® or Vision®, a high-end, integrated sewer system
management application. InSight is recommended for small- to medium-sized flow studies. For
broader applications, Vision supports automated data collection with an unlimited number of
sensors. See Software and Communications on page 13 for more information.
2.3 Optional Accessories for Use with the Flow Meter
Rain Gauge
Connect your flow meter to the Hach tipping bucket rain gauge to record rainfall. See Rain Gauge
on page 23 for more information.
Wastewater Sampler
Connect an optional Hach wastewater sampler to the flow meter. Models 920 and 930 can set the
pace for an external sampler in proportion to flow. In storm water applications, these models can
trigger the sampler in response to water level or rainfall.

General Information
2.4 Planning for Success: Considerations for Installing Your Flow Meter
2.4.1 Choosing the Proper Site
The accuracy of flow measurements greatly depends on the suitability of the monitoring site.
Select sites that have normalized flow and minimal turbulence. Turbulence can make it difficult to
detect an average velocity in the flow stream. Obstructions, vertical drops, pipe bends, and elbows
can create turbulence and affect the accuracy of your measurements. Table 1 contains
suggestions for preventing turbulence.
Table 1 Suggestions for Preventing Turbulence
Site Condition
Suggested Remedy
Outfalls
Attach the sensor at least ten times the maximum expected level upstream of the outfall.
Vertical drops in the
channel floor
Attach the sensor at least ten times the maximum expected level upstream of the vertical drop.
Elbows, sharp turns, and
“Y” connections
Locate the sensor at least ten times the maximum expected level upstream of the impediment.
Attach the sensor at least ten times the maximum expected level downstream of the vertical drop.
Locate the sensor at least ten times the maximum expected level downstream of the impediment.
2.4.2 Dealing with Difficult Sites
Some sites may be difficult to monitor due to poor site conditions. The direction and the speed of
the particles in the flow stream contribute to the signal received by the velocity sensor. If
turbulence near the measurement point is excessive, it may be difficult for the sensor to determine
the average velocity of the stream. Hach loggers provide several unique features to help deal with
these problem sites. See Compensating for Velocity Direction in your sensor manual.
2.4.3 Using the Proper Batteries
Use only Energizer EN-529, Alkaline, 6 V dc batteries. These batteries are required to achieve the
rated performance of the flow meter. Other batteries will produce unacceptable results. See
Installing and Replacing the Batteries on page 19 for more information.
2.4.4 Mounting the Flow Meter with the Proper Orientation
You must mount the flow meter so that the connectors face down. The end of the meter that
contains the batteries should face up. If the connectors face up, they may corrode and allow water
to seep into the instrument.
2.4.5 Preventing Damage to the Flow Meter in a Harsh Environment
The connectors on your flow meter have protective caps. Cover the connectors with the protective
caps when not in use to prevent corrosion.
2.5 Choosing the Appropriate Meter and Sensor Combination
Use Table 2 to determine which sensors to use.
Table 2 Flow Meter and Sensor Configuration Options

Safety Information
Page 11
General Information
2.5.1 Types of Sensors
Submerged Depth/Velocity Sensors
Submerged Depth/Velocity sensors can measure level and velocity simultaneously. A submerged
pressure transducer measures level. Velocity is measured with sound waves, using the Doppler
principle.
Wafer Velocity Sensor
The Wafer Velocity Sensor (Cat. No. 88005 or 88006) is an extremely low-profile velocity sensor. It
does not measure level. The streamlined shape of the wafer probe allows velocity measurement in
very low-flow conditions. When used in conjunction with a level sensor (such as the In-Pipe
Ultrasonic Level Sensor), you can calculate flow.
In-Pipe Ultrasonic Sensor
Use the In-Pipe Ultrasonic Level Sensor (Cat. No. 3702-01 or 3702-02) in pipes where level
measurement to the top of the pipe is desired. This sensor has no effective deadband and will read
the level until liquid reaches the bottom of the sensor housing. The entire deadband is contained
horizontally within the sensor body.
Ultrasonic Sensor (Downlook)
Downlook ultrasonic sensors are available with different beam angles,
beam spread, and deadbands. Use the 75 KHz sensor with the 920 Flow Meter.

Channel Installation Options
In some instances, the overflow in some CSO applications may be too turbulent for accurate
measurement. Figure 6 shows Model 920 with two depth/velocity probes that will measure flow
upstream and downstream of the outfall to determine the volume and duration of the overflow.

Custody transfer or interagency billing demand redundant measurement for chain of custody. In
Figure 7, one Model 920 provides ultrasonic measurement of flow in a Parshall flume while also
measuring flow upstream using the Continuity Equation (Q=AV). This ensures no loss of data in a
submerged flow condition.

Installing and Replacing the Batteries
CAUTION
Use only alkaline batteries in this product. Other types of batteries can result in safety
hazards.
Use only Energizer®* EN-529, alkaline, 6 V dc batteries. These batteries are required to achieve
the rated performance of the flow meter. Other batteries will produce unacceptable results. Nonalkaline or non-industrial grade batteries will damage the battery compartment and may void the
warranty.
Energizer EN-529 batteries are readily available and provide sufficient power to operate the flow
meter for extended periods. Use this model battery to obtain the rated operating duration and to
safeguard the logger circuitry. Replacement batteries are available from Hach (Cat. No. 3667).
Note: Do not soil or damage the two rubber O-rings on the end cap while removing or replacing the end cap.
The O-rings provide a watertight seal for the battery compartment. Replace them if they are lost or damaged.
The 910 uses one 6 V dc alkaline battery and the 920 uses two 6 V dc alkaline batteries. Install the
fresh battery(s) into the battery compartment, terminal-end first. It does not matter which way the
battery is rotated when it is inserted. The battery holder will accept the batteries regardless of
polarity. Use two fresh batteries each time in 920. Do not mix fresh batteries with used ones.
Grasp the logger by the handle opposite of the interface connectors and twist that end counterclockwise to open. Unscrew the end cap.

5.1.1 Battery-Life Estimates
When using Energizer EN-529, alkaline, 6 V dc batteries, battery life is based on:
•
Number of sensors installed
•
Recording intervals (longer intervals increase battery life)
•
Number of channels logged in memory
•
Temperature (colder temperatures decrease battery life)
•
Site hydraulics (second order effect caused by excessive turbulence)
The chart below provides typical expected battery life for each logger model:

5.3 Connecting Sensors to the Flow Meter
5.3.1 Ultrasonic Level Sensor
One 75 kHz Ultrasonic Sensor can be attached to each 'U-SONIC' receptacle. Loggers that use
more than one ultrasonic sensor have ultrasonic receptacles labeled 'U-SONIC A', 'U-SONIC B',
etc. Each sensor may be assigned in the software as the primary sensor or as one or more
secondary sensors. The primary sensor is used for all flow calculations in InSight software.
Vision® software allows the use of any sensor in flow calculation.

5.3.3 Rain Gauge
An optional Hach tipping bucket rain gauge may be connected to the 'RAIN GA.' connector of
Model 920 flow meter. Each tip of the bucket in the rain gauge transmits a dry contact closure to
the flow meter. Each dry contact closure represents 0.01" (0.0254 cm) of rainfall. A constant dc
voltage is supplied on Pin C of the rain gauge receptacle. The dry contact closure in the rain gauge
returns a voltage pulse into Pin A with each tip.

Maintenance
DANGER
Only qualified personnel should conduct the maintenance task described in this section of
the manual.
6.1 General Maintenance
6.1.1 Cleaning the Flow Meter
Clean the outside of the logger case with warm water and mild detergent. Do not use solvents
or harsh cleaners to clean the logger. Do not use high pressure washing equipment to clean
the case.
6.1.2 Storing the Flow Meter
Remove the 6 volt alkaline batteries from the logger when storing for long periods (more than
3 months). Store the sensors in a dry area. Make sure that all desiccant materials in the probes are
kept fresh (blue) at all times.
6.1.3 Maintaining the O-Ring Gasket on the End Cap
Note: Do not use petroleum jelly to lubricate the O-rings.
Two O-ring gaskets are installed in each end cap of the flow meter. They maintain the water tight
seal on the flow meter. Use care when the end caps are removed—do not soil, cut, or nick the
gaskets. Replace them immediately if any physical damage is apparent. A light coating of O-ring
lubricant is sufficient to maintain a water-tight seal. Table 6lists replacement O-ring gaskets.

6.1.4 Electronics Compartment Maintenance
Important Note: The electronics compartment is only serviceable by a qualified electronics
technician familiar with static sensitive CMOS components. Permanent damage to electronic
circuitry may result from improper handling. Always wear a wrist grounding strap when handling
CMOS electronic components.
To open the electronics compartment, remove the four pins that hold the electronics compartment
end cap in place. The pins are located under a protective tape on the outside surface of the logger
near the end cap. The end cap pulls straight off after all pins are removed.
6.1.4.1 Fuses
All internal fuses are self-resetting and require no maintenance. There are no other
user-serviceable components inside the electronics compartment
6.1.4.2 Memory Batteries
An internal battery pack that contains two, 1.5 V dc alkaline “C” batteries powers RAM memory,
the real time clock, and associated circuitry. The batteries also prevent the loss of programmed
settings and logged data if the main power fails or is removed.
Maintenance
Page 25
Maintenance
The memory batteries are located inside the electronics compartment. The two cells will provide
many years of trouble-free operation. Use only alkaline replacement batteries.
You can set a low memory battery indicator using InSight® or Vision® Software. See the software
manual for details.
6.2 Desiccant Maintenance
6.2.1 Reusing Desiccant
The desiccant material is a silica gel indicator. When the gel is saturated with moisture, the beads
turn from blue to pink. To rejuvenate the beads for reuse, remove them from the assembly. Heat
the beads in an oven at 100 to 180 °C (212 to 350 °F) until the beads turn blue again. Discard and
replace the beads if they do not turn blue after heating.
6.2.2 Replacing the Sensor Desiccant
Note: Before calibrating or installing the Submerged Sensor it is absolutely essential that the red plastic
protective cap be removed from the atmospheric reference port of the desiccant cartridge.
The air dryer assembly is an integral part of the velocity probe cable. A small diameter tube is
contained within the sensor cable to supply a reference port from the logger to the transducer in
the sensor. The reference air passes through the in-line desiccant where all moisture is removed.
To remove or replace the sensor desiccant:
1. Remove the fill plug from the assembly.
2. Remove the pink desiccant beads and allow the assembly to air dry.
3. Fill the assembly with fresh (blue) desiccant.
4. Replace the fill plug.
6.2.3 Replacing the Battery and Electronics Compartment Desiccant
A small desiccant cartridge in the battery compartment prevents moisture damage to the batteries
and power circuitry. The electronics compartment desiccant cartridges should be changed
whenever you service the electronics (see section 6.1.4 on page 25) to assure a moisture free
environment inside the enclosure. Table 7contains replacement part numbers.
If the normally blue desiccant beads turn pink, replace the cartridge or remove the cartridge end
cap and recharge or replace the desiccant material. See Reusing Desiccant on page 26.
A small clip holds the desiccant cartridge in place. Pull the cartridge straight out of the clip to
remove it.

6.3 Sensor Calibration
6.3.1 Velocity Sensor Calibration
The velocity sensor does not require calibration. The transmit frequency is fixed by a highly
accurate quartz crystal-controlled frequency generator.
6.3.2 Zeroing the Sensor
The sensor has been factory-calibrated and compensated for temperature. The sensor needs to
be zeroed during each installation, but does not require calibration. The sensor should be zeroed
when moving it from one flow meter or sample to another.
To zero the sensor:
1. Install InSight version 5.7 or greater and start the program.
2. From the InSight software menu, select Remote Programming.
3. From the Real Time Operations list, select the level sensor to be calibrated.
4. Remove the probe from the liquid and place the sensor flat on the tabletop or floor with the
sensor (the plate with the holes) facing down onto the surface.
5. Press OK on the dialog box when complete.
6.3.3 Important Guidelines for Sensor Installation
•
Do not install more than one sensor at a time in pipes less than 61 cm (24 inches). Multiple
sensors in smaller pipes can create turbulent or accelerated flows near the sensors that may
cause inaccurate measurements.
•
Mount the sensor as close as possible to the bottom of the pipe invert to most accurately
measure low velocity levels.
•
Do not monitor flows in the invert of the manhole itself. The best sensor location is 3 to 5 times
the sewer diameter/height upstream of the invert.
•
Locate monitoring sites as far from inflow junctions as possible to avoid interference caused
by combined flows.
•
Avoid sites that contain flow obstacles within 2 to 4 pipe diameters in front of the sensor
installation (rocks, stones, pipe joints, valve stems, etc.) as these will contribute to turbulence
and generate high speed flows in the immediate vicinity of the obstruction.
•
Avoid any sites with slow moving flows that will encourage the buildup of silt in the invert or
channel. Excessive silting around the sensor may inhibit the Doppler signal and decrease
sensor accuracy, and may affect depth measurement accuracy.
•
Avoid sites with deep, rapid flows that will make it physically difficult or dangerous to install the
sensor.
•
Avoid sites with high velocity, low-depth flows. Splash-over and excessive turbulence will be
present around the sensor and data may be inaccurate.

6.3.4 Connecting the Sensor to the Mounting Bands
Important Note: If using an oil-filled sensor, replenish the oil prior to mounting the sensor to a
mounting band. Refer to section 4.1.2 on page 19 for oil replenishment instructions, if applicable.
1. Attach the sensor to the spring ring. Mounting bands come with pre-drilled holes for direct
mounting of the sensor to the band.
2. To reduce the likelihood of debris collecting on the cable and mounting band, route the cable
along the edge of the band and fasten the cable to the mounting band with nylon wire ties
(Figure 14). The cable should exit the tied area at, or near, the top of the pipe to keep it out of
the flow stream.
Note: If there is a large amount of silt in the bottom of the pipe, rotate the band until the sensor is out of the
silt (Figure 15), assuring that the sensor remains below the minimum expected water level at all times. Silt
should not be disturbed and must be measured frequently.

6.3.5 Placing the Sensor and Mounting Band into the Pipe
Point the angle-face of the sensor into the flow. The manufacturer recommends placing the sensor
with the arrow pointing with the flow (Figure 16). For other mounting configurations, see the
appropriate flow meter manual.
Slide the mounting band as far into the pipe as possible to eliminate drawdown effects near the
end of the pipe. Locate the sensor at the bottom-most point in the channel. If excessive silt is
present on the bottom of the pipe, rotate the band in the pipe until the sensor is out of the silt.

6.3.6 Compensating for Velocity Direction
When programming the sensor the following may be selected:
Option*
Description
Upstream
Use this option at sites with fairly consistent velocities, and low to medium turbulence. The flow stream
over the sensor should be relatively straight, with no drops or turns near the measurement point.
(recommended for
most applications)
Sensor Calibration
Page 30
Mount the sensor in the pipe, beveled edge facing into the flow, where the flow stream enters the
measurement area (Figure 16).
Maintenance
Option*
Description
Use this option when the sensor is installed downstream of the measurement point (where the flow
stream exits the site). This option is useful when more than one flow stream enters a site and the
combined flow of all streams at a single exit point is measured.
Mount the sensor in the downstream direction rather than the typical, upstream direction. Mounting the
sensor 'backwards' in this manner (Figure 16) causes the velocity direction readings to be the opposite
of actual stream flow. By selecting the Downstream choice when programming, the logger reverses the
measured signal to show actual flow direction (beveled edge downstream).
The maximum velocity obtained in this type of installation is 5 fps.
*. Additional options may be available depending on the flow meter or sampler used. Refer to the appropriate flow meter or sampler
manual for more information.
Downstream
6.3.7 Performing a Level Adjustment
The manufacturer recommends doing a level adjustment whenever a sensor is first installed into a
flow stream. This adjustment accounts for the various physical tolerance stack-ups in the system
(i.e., thickness of the mounting band, angular placement of the sensor relative to the “6 O’ clock”
position in the pipe, etc.)
1. With the sensor installed in the flow, use a PC or display (950 and 980 flowmeter) to monitor
Current Status.
2. Take a physical measurement of the water depth by measuring the distance from the top of the
pipe to the surface of the water (item B, Figure 17), and subtracting this number from the pipe
diameter (item A, Figure 17). The resulting number is the water depth (item C, Figure 17).
3. Enter the physically-measured water depth into the software using the Adjust Level function.

6.4.1 Cleaning the Sensor (Oil-filled and Standard)
Clean the transducer port when:
•
Unexpected increase or decrease in flow or level trend occurs
•
Level data are missing or incorrect but velocity data are valid.
•
Excessive silt has deposited between the transducer and its protective cover.
Sensor Maintenance
Page 31
Maintenance
6.4.1.1 Cleaning the Sensor (Oil-filled and Non-oil)
Important Note: Do NOT interchange an oil-filled protective cover plate with a non-oil cover plate.
This will adversely affect level readings. It is possible to convert one type of sensor to the other
using the Oil Probe Conversion Kit (Cat. No. 7730000), refer to the Oil Probe Conversion Kit
Instruction Sheet, Cat. No. 7730089 for more information.
Important Note: When cleaning the transducer, use the most gentle technique possible. Do not
use sharp or pointed objects to remove sediment from the face of the transducer. If you nick or
dent the transducer, it will break!
1. Soak the sensor in soapy water
Note: Do not soak the sensor in bleach. Bleach will permanently damage the sensor. Refer to Table 8 for
acceptable cleaning solutions.

2. Remove the screws from the protective cover (Figure 18).
3. Remove the cover and gasket.
4. Carefully swirl the sensor in an appropriate cleaning solution to remove soil. Use a spray or
squeeze bottle to wash away heavier deposits.
5. Clean the gasket and cover. Replace the gasket (Cat. No. 7722000) if it is torn or damaged.
Level readings will be adversely affected if the gasket is damaged or not installed.
6. Reattach the gasket and cover (note orientation in Figure 18). Tighten the screws until the
gasket starts to compress.

6.4.2 Oil Replenishment (Oil Kit Cat. No. 7724800)
The manufacturer recommends inspecting the oil in the sensor for large air bubbles during the
customer-scheduled service duty cycle, and prior to every installation. Small bubbles (less than ¼in. diameter) of air within the oil do not affect performance. Larger bubbles may minimize the antifouling benefit of the oil.
To replenish sensor oil:
1. If the sensor is new, remove the yellow tape on the sensor.
2. Remove any debris from the sensor.
3. Load the oil cartridge into the dispensing gun (Figure 20).
4. Twist the feed tube onto the cartridge and attach the syringe tip to the feed tube (Figure 21).
5. Press the dispenser gun handle to purge any air bubbles from the syringe tip.
6. Remove the set screw in the transducer cover with the supplied 0.035 hex wrench. Retain the
set screw.
7. Slowly insert the syringe tip into the set screw hole and dispense the oil
(Figure 22). While dispensing the oil, hold the probe at an angle to allow the air to be pushed
out the side port (Figure 22). Continue to dispense the oil until all the air bubbles are removed.
Note: Slowly insert the syringe tip and do not dispense oil during insertion or damage to the transducer may
occur if too much pressure is applied.
8. Continue to dispense the oil while removing the syringe from the set screw hole to prevent air
bubbles. Replace the set screw until it is flush with the transducer cover and remove any
excess oil around the screw hole or on the sensor.
9. Clean the entire probe and place a piece of electrical tape over the side port to prevent oil from
leaking out. Remove the tape from the sensor prior to zeroing and installing the sensor.

6.4.3 Changing the Sensor Desiccant
The desiccant canister contains beads of silica gel which ensure proper orientation of the pressure
transducer. When the beads are blue, they can remove moisture from the air. When they are pink,
they are saturated and cannot absorb any more moisture from the air, and they must be replaced
immediately.
Important Note: When the beads begin to turn pink, replace or rejuvenate the beads. Permanent
damage to the sensor may occur if the desiccant is not maintained. Never operate the sensor
without the proper desiccant. When rejuvenating beads, remove them from the canister and heat
at 100–180 °C (212–350 °F) until the beads turn blue. If the beads do not turn blue, replace them
with new beads. Do not heat the canister.
6.4.3.1 Desiccant Replacement Procedure
Note: Replacing the desiccant does not require that the desiccant container be removed from the desiccant
box.
1. Use a slight twisting motion to twist the bottom end-cap until its slots align with the retaining
clips (Figure 23).
2. Gently remove the end cap by grasping it and pulling it straight out.
3. Pour the desiccant beads out of the canister.
4. Hold the canister up to the light and inspect the hydrophobic filter.
Sensor Maintenance
Page 35
Maintenance
•
If you see a small, dim light spot while looking through the hole, the filter is in good
condition. If you see a bright light spot, the filter is probably torn. Replace the filter.
•
If the desiccant beads were completely saturated with water or the filter has saturated with
water or grease, replace the filter.
5. Refill the canister tube with blue desiccant beads (Cat. No. 3624). Inspect the O-ring (Cat. No.
5252) on the bottom cap for cracking, pits, or evidence of leakage. Replace if necessary.
Note: Applying O-ring grease to new or dry O-rings improves the ease of insertion, sealing, and life span of
the O-ring.
6. Make sure that the O-ring is clean and free of dirt or debris before replacing the end cap.
7. Reinstall the end cap.

6.4.4 Hydrophobic Filter Description
A single Teflon® hydrophobic filter (Cat. No. 3390) is installed in the top of the canister to prevent
liquid from entering the vent tube.
For best performance and to avoid grease buildup on the filter during submergence or surcharge
conditions, hang the canister vertically so that the end facing the sensor points downward.
Note: The Hydrophobic Filter may need replacement at any time the cartridge is submerged or exposed to
excess moisture. Refer to section 6.4.5.
6.4.5 Hydrophobic Filter Replacement Procedure
1. Disconnect the tubing from the top of the desiccant canister.
2. Unscrew the hex-head tubing nipple from the top of the canister and discard the old filter.
3. Discard any remnants of Teflon tape from the nipple’s threads. Reapply two turns of Teflon
tape (Cat. No. 10851-45) to the threads, pulling the tape into the threads until it conforms to
the shape of the threads.
4. Place a new filter over the hole. Make sure that the smooth side of the filter faces the inside of
the canister (Figure 24).
5. Place the threaded nipple on top of the filter.
Sensor Maintenance
Page 36
Maintenance
6. With a slight pressure, press the filter into the hole with the nipple threads and begin threading
the nipple into the hole. The filter will deflect upward and feed completely into the thread until it
disappears. The filter must rotate with the nipple as it is threaded into the cap. If it does not, it
is torn. Start over with a new filter.
7. Inspect the installation. In the upper cap, a small, dim light spot should be visible when held up
to the light. A bright spot indicates a torn filter. Start over with a new filter.
