Emriver Research Instruments

Steve has spent thousands of hours of R&D on our Emriver research instruments, including the sediment feeder, dye injector, groundwater system, and magnetic flow meter. He says "It's nice when you build and wire, and load the code, and thousands of hours of R&D come alive, and the elegant machine does its amazing thing."

Here he is with a media feeder bound for Saint Louis University.



To learn more about our research instruments, watch this video, and give us a call or email if you have questions or would like a quote. These instruments, for the Em3 and Em4 models, are modular and can be added to a model at any time.
