Flow Measurement and Calibration


What is Flow Measurement?

Instruments for measuring the airflow are often not designed and built to the given norm and do not comply with the standard specification.

Thereby the traceability to standards and the quality of the measurement results is not ensured. We offer our expertise and test facilities to establish this traceability. In conjunction with partner organisations, more complexed problems can be investigated and solutions offered.

It is also possible to measure flow measurement devices for customers on-site, e.g. by means of traversing with flow probes.


Keyfacts

  • Recording of very small mass flows: use of specialised partner laboratories
  • Small mass flows of up to 2.2 kg/s (air) are possible in the AneCom AeroTest flow lab (link)
  • Reference: example of massflow measurement by use of an orifice plate according to DIN EN ISO 5167, Mach-number related calibration
  • Mass flows of up to 70 kg/s: Mach number and/or Reynolds numberrelated calibration in reference to an orifice plate  or a supersonic nozzle
  • Mass flows > 70 kg/s: measurement and analysis of the interface profiles, and applicability of the BS1042 standard
  • Consideration of the specific flow geometries and various operating conditions: measurement and analysis of boundary layer profiles and application of the BS1042 standard
