What is a vane anemometer?
A vane anemometer is used for measuring airflow rates through extraction fans. In combination with a measuring cone or funnel set it can measure air velocity and volumetric flow rates through air grilles in residential buildings. It can be used to measure air speed and airflow rates for Part F compliance in bathroom extractor fans, kitchen extraction fans, cooker hoods, and utility room extractors. The most common size is a 100mm diameter vane anemometer such as the testo 417.
