The Extech Pitot Tube Anemometer + Differential Manometer reaches in tight locations where a vane anemometer can't fit to measure air velocity/airflow.
The Extech Pitot Tube Anemometer + Differential Manometer measures air velocity and airflow in difficult-to-reach or tight locations. The meter simultaneously displays pressure, air velocity, or air flow plus temperature on a large LCD display with backlighting. It has 5 selectable units of pressure measurements and a ±0.7252psi range. It stores and recalls up to 99 readings in each mode to then be transferred to a PC via the UBS port to analize data points using the included software. Additional meter functions include max/min/avg recording, relative time stamp, data hold, and auto power off.

How does this meter measure air flow and pressure?
This anemometer uses a unique pitot tube method to measure air velocity and air flow, and a manometer hose to measure pressure in small, tight areas. To measure air velocity or air flow, the pitot tube is connected to the meter by the two pressure manometer hoses. Then the tube is held in the flow of air with the mouth of the tube facing the oncoming air. To measure pressure, connect only one hose to the input(+) port on the meter, and hold the open end of the tube toward the air flow.
An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
