SW60, WIND TUNNEL

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

SCENTROID WIND TUNNEL SAMPLER (AKA VENTILATED SAMPLING HOOD)

The Scentroid SW60 is the next generation Wind Tunnel Sampler (AKA Ventilated Sampling Hood), used for sampling on solid or liquid surfaces with passive odour emissions in accordance with the EN13725 and VDI3880. The SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler offers a number of unique features that make it the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Lindvall Concept

The SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler is designed based on the Lindvall concept, which is considered the industry’s most widely accepted and most accurate wind tunnel design.

Uniform air flow

The SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler uses a series of 15 fins to direct the air speed within the chamber ensuring complete uniform flow for highest level of odour sampling accuracy.

Zero Contamination

As with all Scentroid products, contamination control is a high priority for the SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler. The instrument is entirely PTFE coated aluminium composite with no plastic parts.

Continuous use for more than 1 HR

The SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler battery pack can sustain the blower for 1.5 hours of continuous use. Plugging the SW60 to a standard 12V auto power outlet, will allow for infinite use while also charging the battery pack.

Portability

The SW60 Wind Tunnel has been designed to be easily handled and deployed by a single technician. The floaters can be dismantled and carried separately while the entire air supply module is built into a single waterproof carrying case.

Variable Air Speed

The Scentroid SW60 has a variable air supply allowing the technician to set any air speed between 0.15 to 1 m/s. The air speed is continuously monitored via the built-in anemometer to ensure readings are accurate and reliable.

Wind Tunnel Applications

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Wind Tunnel Applications

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.
  • Determine the emission rate from a liquid surface
  • Determine variation in emission rate based on different wind speeds
  • Compare laminar versus turbulent emission rates

Wind Tunnel Basics of Operation

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Wind Tunnel Basic of Operation

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.
  • Connect the Air supply unit to the wind tunnel
  • Connect the wind tunnel to the tablet for air speed measurements
  • Connect the vacuum chamber to the sample port
  • Adjust air speed to desired value
  • Acquire sample using the vacuum chamber

Continuous Air Speed Monitoring

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Continuous Air Speed Monitoring

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Scentroid SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler has a built-in anemometer that remotely monitors the exact wind speed inside the tunnel. The data is logged and shown on any mobile tablet or phone. This not only significantly increases the accuracy of odour sampling, but also provides a means of setting the air speed to the exact desired value.

Ultra-Light Aerospace Materials

Scentroid SW60 is the most accurate and user friendly area source sampler in the world.

Scentroid SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler is made of state-of-the-art PTFE coated aluminium composite material that is both, extremely rigid and ultra-light. The wind tunnel only weighs 10 kg making it very easy to handle by a single technician. Despite being extremely light, the composite material makes the SW60 Wind Tunnel Sampler tough enough to withstand the toughest working conditions.

FAQ

Does the SW60 come with the air supply unit?

YES. The SW60 comes with a complete air supply unit which includes a blower, filter, variable speed controller, rechargeable battery and chargers all enclosed in a rugged waterproof hard case.

What is the optimal air speed inside the wind tunnel?

There is no definite answer as it really depends on the application. Some literature suggest 1 m/s or less and some 0.1 m/s. It should be noted that the higher the speed the lower the odour concentration of the collected samples. The ideal solution is to match the air speed to conditions of the sample location.

What other equipment do I need to operate the SW60 Wind tunnel?

The only other piece of equipment you need is a sampling device like the VC10 vacuum chamber to pull the sample into a PTFE bag.

Can I use the wind tunnel to sample landfill odours?

Yes. This type of sampling is well suited for the SW60 wind tunnel.  It should be noted that for surfaces with non-uniform emission rate the number of samples is critical. It may be parts of the surface that have no emission and other parts that are highly odourous.

Reviews
