“Delft University has acquired an ULTIMA DTS from Silixa Ltd and has used it without difficulty for temperature measurements in many hydrological applications. The unit has provided invaluable high resolution data for our research applications. We have been extremely impressed with the performance of the ULTIMA DTS unit as well as the support provided by Silixa.”

“Our choice of technology was based on the outstanding spatial and temporal resolution offered by both the ULTIMA DTS and the newer XT-DTS systems. The instruments have been performing at or better than specified and we are very satisfied with the results.”

“The ULTIMA DTS’s resolution capabilities provide an entirely new level of technology for borehole applications that should lead to significant results in groundwater hydrology in the coming years. The ULTIMA DTS has delivered unparalleled high resolution data and has allowed quantifying of vertical flow all along the borehole.”
