Product Details

The Volumetric PIV system from TSI offers many unique and outstanding features for your 3D3C measurements for gaseous and liquid flows. With the flexible system configuration, users can select specific camera models as well the V3V camera mounting frame to cater to unique experimental setups, ensuring the most appropriate pixel resolution, frame rate, spatial resolution and volume size for the accurate three dimensional results.

The uniquely designed, patented V3V camera mounting frames, V3V-9000-TS and V3V-9000-CS, offer different volume sizes and spatial resolutions required for users' measurements. The frame allows the camera to be secured quickly such that the system is ready to take measurements in less than 30 minutes. Unlike other types of volumetric PIV systems, TSI's V3V system does not require the time intensive process to adjust the camera location and angle to obtain the correct focusing.

Choice of  cameras determines the pixel resolution and capture rate required to achieve the best possible results; and the three cameras are detachable from the V3V camera mounting frame so users can further their measurement capabilities. Moreover, the cameras are easily configured for planar-PIV, stereo-PIV or PLIF measurements.
