Our anemometers are hot-wire (thermal) anemometers. Basically, it measures the air speed by calculating how fast the sensor is being cooled by the air.

The principles behind all hot-wire anemometers may be the same, but the quality varies. This is due to several factors:

1) We calibrate the temperature compensation sensor, as well as the velocity sensor. Other manufacturers only calibrate the velocity sensor.

2)We use special high-quality materials, like our platinum sensors, that increase accuracy.

3) Our manufacturing plant has a special high temperature wind tunnel designed specifically for calibrating our high temperature anemometers.

4) Our manufacturing facility uses not 1, but 4 specialized wind tunnels to test and calibrate our anemometers. These wind tunnels include a low velocity tunnel, high velocity tunnel and a variable temperature wind tunnel.

5) We’ve been making anemometers for over 60 years. During that time we’ve perfected our knowledge and refined our manufacturing process to produce a research-grade instrument.

Yes, all of our instruments come with a calibration certificate.

Annual calibration is recommended to ensure accuracy. However, this can vary based on how often the anemometer is used and the environments it’s used in. Also, some companies have an SOP in place that specifies how often the instrument will need to be serviced. More specifically, regulatory compliance may dictate the calibration interval.

You can measure clean air between 32 and 752°F (please see the specifications for exact details as each probe is different) in an environment with no visible condensation. (NOTE: the high temperature probes can measure temperature up to 932°F, but air flow can only be measured up to 752°F.)

No, these are thermal anemometers that generate heat when in operation; if you expose them to a flammable gas it could cause a fire or explosion. Corrosive or caustic gases, such a chlorine, will damage the sensor on contact. While it is possible to use the instrument in a non-flammable, non-caustic gases the instrument is not calibrated for these gases and it will not measure airflow accurately.

We offer three different probes. Probe Model 0203 is our mid-temperature probe, it’s rated for temperatures between 32 and 392°F. Probes Model 0204 and Model 0205 are high-temperature probes that can measure air flow between 32 and 752°F. The Model 0204 probe is 1000mm long, while 0205 is 500mm long. All the probes come with a case, cable to attach it to the 6162 and an NIST certificate.

The instrument can measure temperature ranges up to 932°F (with Model 0204 or Model 0205), however you can only measure air flow in temperature ranges up to 732°F.

No, the probes (0203, 0204 and 0205) can only be used with model 6162. You need to order both 6162 and at least one of the probes: 0203, 0204 & 0205.
