New Generation of Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge Buckets

HyQuest Solutions is happy to announce the next generation of bucket assembly for the proven tipping bucket rain gauges.

The new bucket is the result of the ongoing product improvement process at HyQuest Solutions. The bucket is made from a high quality polymer, impregnated with teflon. From 1st January 2020 the new teflon type will be a component on models which in the past were fitted with the chrome plated ABS type bucket *.

Benefits

 

Advantages of the new teflon buckets:

  • Minimal surface water tension: no residual water following each bucket tip
  • East-to-clean surface: dust and other debris such as pollen are easily removed
  • High level of durability and long service life

Better yet, the new teflon type will ensure that HyQuest Solutions will continue to be able to offer the tipping bucket rain gauges at a highly competitive price - a further benefit for the customer!

  • Model TB3
