Fluid Mechanics Research

Providing fluid measurement solutions is at the root of our company’s mission. We provide cutting-edge fluid mechanics measuring instruments for performing tasks such as non-contact measurements of low-to-floor conditions during engine combustion (which occurs under high temperatures and pressure) to universities and engineering facilities.

In addition, our proprietary Smart Laser Doppler Velocimeter (LDV) III and hot-wire low velocimeter are widely used in fluid research measurements at institutions.

Kanomax Smart LDV III


A Laser Doppler Velocimeter (LDV) measures fluid velocity by utilizing coherence of laser light. It detects the Doppler shift frequency of the scattering light of particles in the fluid and calculates the velocity of the particles (fluid). With a LDV system, non-intrusive measurements without disturbing the measuring object, liquid or gas flow, are achieved.

Kanomax Fluostar Fluorescent Particles

Fluostar Fluorescent Particles

FLUOSTAR microspheres are polymer fluorescent particles encapsulating the fluorescent dye, Rhodamine B, which emits the orange-colored fluorescence when illuminated by a green-colored laser (e.g. Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF). FLUOSTAR feature the outstanding emission efficiency of fluorescence, which are best suited for PIV applications. The strong orange-colored fluorescence may be even observed by sight using a 5 mW laser pointer.
