Omnidirectional Telescopic Probe
Ventilation is one of the four main factors that affect building energy consumption (heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting) and is vital in maintaining indoor air quality and providing a healthy and comfortable working environment.
The Sustainable Building Futures project ventilation measuring kit can be used to:
- provide a spot check of ventilation rates to confirm Building Regulations compliance;
- assess whether an existing ventilation system operates as designed;
- discover and monitor the source and extent of draughts in the workplace.
Our equipment comprises:
- omnidirectional telescopic probe used for indoor air velocity measurement at low range readings, between 0.15 and 5m/s (0.3 to 10mph), with a high resolution of 0.01m/s. This is most often used to monitor and assess draughts in buildings (picture at right);
- vane probe anemometer for indoor and external air velocity within normal range readings between 0.25 to 35m/s (0.5 to 80mph) with detection of air flow direction and temperature measurement between 0 to +50°C (picture below left). This can also be used with our 200 x 200mm airflow cone, for the direct measurement of air flow through ventilators, grilles and HVAC systems.
