A new year brings us a new, non-vented or absolute water level logger, Van Walt’s LevelSCOUT from the stable of the Seattle based manufacturer Seametrics. Seametrics was primarily known for their superb range of Flow Meters and in 2014 they purchased INW (Instrumentation North West) who had been producing vented and non-vented loggers for decades. INW’s strength was the excellence of their equipment, world-wide they are considered leaders in accuracy and resilience.
During the purchase of INW, Seametrics retained all the staff including the owner of INW, Gregg Gustaffson who now acts as a consultant for the Board.
Van Walt has been supplying vented INW sensors for some years, primarily for those situations where the highest accuracy was required (and elsewhere I have written about the benefits and disadvantages of vented vs absolute) and now we are delighted to be able to offer you a new absolute water level logger from this respected stable, that has many advantages over alternatives:
Confidence – Technology – Choice
When choosing Van Walt’s LevelSCOUT water level logger these words, which form part of our mission statement, became some of the very reasons for adopting this brand new instrument:
Confidence: In the product, in the people behind the product – staff in the manufacturing, quality control and assurance, marketing and administration. More importantly we look at the philosophy of a business to make sure that each step is documented, ethically sound and follows our core values.
Technology: Any technology used in our products must be current and tested following good quality assurance and quality control procedures. Robustness, fit for purpose, and reliability will feature highly as does track record and provenance.
Choice: We live in an age where there is a buffet of choices. The trick is to find the smart choice but the choice of yesterday might not be that of today or tomorrow so there needs to be a continual evaluation of the choices we make. At Van Walt we believe strongly that choice, in the way we do things, the products we support, the staff we employ, is fundamental to the success of our business and the success in our interaction with our customers. A programme of continual development is in place so we can be more certain that we use the best decision criteria to make smarter choices for our customers.
