Fluid Dynamics

Physics and Engineering applications investigating Fluid Dynamics require reliable, high-resolution, high framerate capture of liquid and gas flow.

High-Speed Cameras for Fluid Dynamics

Physics and Engineering applications investigating Fluid Dynamics require reliable, high-resolution, high frame-rate capture of liquid and gas flow. Chronos high-speed cameras are relied on in labs around the world to capture hydrodynamic and aerodynamic events.

The budget-friendly series is ideal for observing flow rate, predictive patterns, and aiding in modeling of the various disciplines and subdisciplines of fluid dynamics. Schlieren Imaging is a commonly used measurement technique for fluid flow and the monochrome Chronos cameras are ideal for aeronautical engineering. Kron Technologies offers a range of options to fit almost any research application.

Chronos high-speed imaging systems offer all-in-one, high-resolution, high framerate solutions that support fluid dynamics applications. Get up and running in minutes with the easy-to-use interface and extend the functionality with accessories such as microscope lenses, and high-speed lighting.
