Tips

When using a hotwire anenometer from Environmental Monitoring it is important to remember a few things. Do not use the hot wire in environments which are heavly mositure laden.

This will cause the hotwire to malfunction.

Do not use it in hazardous areas.

With regards to measring any velocity be aware what you are actually measuring. You can do this by refering to the standard equation for velocity which looks at a number of this basic items and corrects for gas density and moisture.

The hotwire anemeometer does not do this things and therefore makes some basic assumptions. Nevertheless it is a useful monitoring tool. For a more accurate and robust device consider a pitot tube and differential pressure manometer.
