Quality Wind Tunnel Testing and Anemometer Calibration Services
In accordance to the above standards, wind instruments are calibrated to Bryza's Pitot-static tube system, which is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), hence to the International System of Units (SI) or Système international d'unités.
Bryza Wind Lab provides custom model testing such as flow visualization and other special measurements requiring simulation in subsonic speeds.
Anemometer calibration service is readily available for a variety of wind measuring devices including cup anemometers, propeller anemometers, sonic anemometers, hand-held vane or hot wire velocity meters, and any other special devices. Anemometer calibration test protocols are recommended according to the following standards, commonly referred in industries such as wind energy, weather, aviation, nuclear, air quality, and building commissioning:
