Air Speed

Labcal is equipped with UKAS accredited LASER technology to measure air speeds very accurately in our wind tunnels for low and high velocities. Laser technology uncertainty of measurement is within 0.25%, which is more accurate than the classical methods of velocity measurement.

We calibrate all types of devices within our two available wind tunnels which cover between them a wind speed range of 0.1 to 80 m/s:

  • Vane anemometers
  • Pitot tubes
  • Hot wire anemometers
  • Cup anemometers
  • Propeller
  • Resonance
  • Insertion meters
  • Ultrasonic anemometers

Labcal has two wind tunnels within its UKAS laboratory
