Plastic Rain Gauge

Home > Laboratory plasticware > Plastic Rain Gauge

A Rain Gauge is an instrument used by meteorologists to measure rainfall at a particular place. The rainfall is usually measured in millimetres; however, it is also measured in centimetres or inches occasionally. This device is in actuality a cylinder with a uniform cross-section from top to bottom. In fact, any cylindrical vessel with uniform cross-section can be used as a rain gauge. However, such vessels lack protection to retain the original amount of rain collected. Also, the water may become contaminated due to the present dirt, or impurities in the air.

Rain gauge is normally made of transparent plastic material such as tough butyrate. Plastic rain gauge or any type of rain gauge comes with a tapering funnel of copper or polyester that allows the rain water to collect in an enclosed cylinder for subsequent measurement. The device is kept in open ground with the funnel rim up to 30 cm above the ground surface for rain water to be collected.
