Emflume1 prototype debut.



Today we rolled the prototype Emflume1 into the sunshine outside our lab and fired it up.

We'll debut this model at ASEE in San Antonio next week.

It's a worldwide first, a desktop 2D flume, based on designs by (and help from) Steven Vogel and others.  And and on hundreds of hours of work in our shop and lab.

The super-efficient ducted prop design needs little power to pump a lot of water and can circulate plastic sediment with ease.

We're asking engineering profs at ASEE to help us refine the design.  What measurement and teaching tools do you need?
