Learning Lessons from Hurricanes

The lessons continually learned from hurricanes are still unfolding, but we have one that will help when another natural disaster strikes. As we learned many systems that businesses use to monitor their important environments such as refrigerators and freezers in restaurants, cafeterias, and medical facilities lost power. When this happened, several customers told us the systems they use to track the temperatures also failed since they relied on electrical power as well. A simple precaution is a min/max thermometer that does not rely on power.  At Sper Scientific, we have two models that are ideal for this use: 736680 and 736690. These thermometers...

Four Cups? Not With Our Anemometers

   An anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed. The term is derived from the Greek word anemos, meaning wind, and is used to describe any air speed measurement instrument used in meteorology or aerodynamics. The first known description of an anemometer was given by Leon Battista Alberti around 1450. The simplest form in common use is the cup anemometer, which catches the wind with rotating cups, usually four. Cup anemometers are still used for wind, power performance evaluations and site calibrations. An anemometer is also a common instrument used in HVAC. Specifically for indoor air quality and HVAC / R technicians measuring Heat / Ventilation...
