Anemometer from MRC.Different types of professional Anemometer like Cup Anemometer,Vane Anemometer . Personal guidance and professional advice.
An anemometer measures the speed and force of the wind.
What is Cup Anemometer
An instrument that measures the speed and force of the wind. This anemometer is indispensable wherever fast and precise wind speeds close to the ground have to be checked
A Guide to Measuring Wind Speed-Anemometer
-There are 2 types of anemometers: there are devices that are fixed regularly and there are portable ones. Measuring wind speed and wind direction is an important measurement for cranes, fishing boats and yachts, high antennas, high-rise towers, airports and Helipad of helicopters.
-Cup anemometer allows measurement of wind at any point where the sensor is positioned.
-Vane ANEMOMETER should be placed in front of the wind direction.
Uses of Anemometer
An anemometer is an instrument that measures wind speed and wind pressure. Anemometers are important tools for meteorologists.
-cup anemometers are placed at the highest possible end, at the top of the control tower at the airport, at the top of the antenna, in a high-rise tower when the measurement is in the control room.
-Cranes, fishermen and yachtsmen hold their portable Vane ANEMOMETER in their pocket. Through them they check the speed of the wind.
-Building maintenance personnel have an integrated anemometer with a temperature gauge in the toolbox at work. They check the speed of airflow coming out of the air conditioning using a vane-anemometer.
-Hood maintenance personnel in laboratories check the speed of airflow in the hoods using an anemometer.
How to choose a Vane ANEMOMETER
-There are several types of anemometers, the most common is a Vane ANEMOMETER that covers most of the measuring range.
A Vane ANEMOMETER is not suitable for measuring very low wind, In this case it is advisable to use a wind gauge based on filament (as in hoods),And is not suitable for high speeds.
Application of a Vane ANEMOMETER
Mainly used for air conditioning maintenance, crane operators, antenna installers, helicopter pads, drilling rigs, ships, firefighters, farmers, sprayers, hikers, birders, nature lovers, shooting ranges, the military, stadiums and sports competitions in open spaces.
-Vane ANEMOMETERS usually also measure temperature and can also measure both humidity and barometer.Most have the ability to also measure airflow especially for those used by air conditioning personnel.
-The Vane is usually made of plastic and at high speeds may break.There are Anemometers that allow easy replacement of the vane, There are Anemometers where the vane is made of metal and more resistant to breakage.
-The diameter of the vane varies between 20 mm and 120 mm. In air conditioning measurements, a large diameter vane is usually used.
-To measure the maximum wind speed, rotate the vane in front of the wind and display the maximum reading.
