FE-1050 Overview

The FE-1050 is an airflow measuring element assembly designed for installation in fan inlet cones. The averaging Fechheimer Pitot Tube design of these primary elements provides a means of accurate flow measurement of fan capacity and ease of installation while meeting AHSHRAE Standard 111 for traversing. Each assembly is complete with two airflow measuring elements and pivot mounting hardware. The elements are made with application specific materials (Standard 6063-T5 Anodized Aluminum, Type 316 Stainless Steel, or Type 1 PVC).The FE-1050 is highly resistant to particulate buildup and can be easily maintained when required. The FE-1050 is ideal for retrofit applications where fan air flow measurement is required on existing fans or new construction where piezometer rings are not supplied. Flow transducers are sold separately.
