With our rainfall simulator, rain events of known properties can be created, allowing increased control over the many variables that govern natural rainfall. Whether you are seeking field parameter values for use in model calibrations, product comparisons, or rapid initial assessment of a wide range of factors, a rainfall simulator can provide the answers. Rainfall simulators have been in use in the mining, agricultural and urban environments to determine sustainable development impacts and to assist with best practice measures.
