Kimo K type cones | Air capture hood

Contact Instrument Solutions

KIMO has designed and manufactured the flow cones as an essential instrument for measuring direct air flows in HVAC systems. They are suitable for air flow (volume) measurements in both supply and extract modes, for hot wire (thermal) and 100 mm diameter Kimo vane anemometers.

Available in a range of sizes which are suited different volume flow rates.

Technical

Important notes :

If required a compatible 100mm (4") vane or hot wire anemometer must be order separately to use this product and all calibrations must be conducted in conjunction with this anemometer.

If this product is to be used for the testing of a ventilation system covered by Part F of the Building Regulations it is required to have a UKAS calibration for air volume in conjunction with an anemometer to comply with the guidance documentation.

When using any hood kit it is recommended that there is a minimum of 50mm clearance between the fan inlet/outlet grille and the hood. Furthermore if testing fans with an inlet/outlet grille on the side of the product a clearance of at least 100mm should be made to reduce measurement errors. For measurements in these applications BSRIA Instrument Solutions recommends a product such as the Alnor LoFlow balometer with its larger hood assembly.
