wind speed monitor Applications

  • Wind Monitoring for Bridges and Sluices

    In many cases reliable measurement of wind speed is a must requirement for the safe operation of bridges and sluices. Mierij Meteo has supplied numerous wind sensors ensuring safe operation whatever the season. For reliable measurement of wind speed, wind direction and temperature we recommend: Anemometer and Wind Vane MW 21 / Anemometer and Wind Vane MW 11 & MW 12 / Temperature meters MT 32 or  MT 42

  • Ambient Continuous Metals Monitoring/ Fence Line Monitoring/ Source Identification

    The Xact® 625i combined with ADAPT software creates the industry's most powerful tool for high time resolution detection of airborne metals. The Xact® 625i measures trace metals at very low detection limits at time resolutions down to 15 minutes. The ADAPT package captures corresponding wind speed and wind direction data, then seamlessly integrates the measurements into wind regression analyses available at the touch of a button. This creates the most single most powerful fence line/ source identification instrument in the industry.

  • Radionuclide Monitoring for Nuclear Power Plants

    The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides. A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits. Ecotech`s MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis. The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.

  • Meteo Information for Safe Operation

    In the industry segment meteo information is essential for safe operation. To deal with emergencies, accurate real-time information on wind conditions (direction and speed) is crucial. In some cases we feed this data directly into safety applications which models and predicts the progression of released gas clouds.

  • Prescribed Burning

    A general understanding of the separate and combined effects of several weather elements on fire behavior is needed to plan and execute a good prescribed burn. Because weather and fuel factors interact, an experienced prescribed burner can conduct a successful burn even with one or more factors slightly outside the desired range—as long as they are offset by other factors. Accurate fire weather monitoring of fire danger indices via the RAWS network, providing historical data leading up to a prescribed burn is critical in the planning stages. However, having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real time during the execution of a prescribed burn is just as critical. The weather variables most applicable to prescription burns are air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. A combination of wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, and solar insulation largely determines fuel condition which in turn affects fire behavior.
