Our imagevideo

We measure the flow velocity of fluids, i. e. air-flow and differential pressure of air, as well as surface flow velocity of water in rivers and lakes.


For both parameters

  • Air-flow and
  • Pressure (up to 25 kPa)

we are accredited according to ISO 17025.

We develop and produce:

  • Thermoelectric anemometers
  • Vane anemometers
  • Velocity meters for surface water
  • Meteorological anemometers
  • Manometers for micropressure
  • Tunnel ventilation sensors

We are quality certified according to ISO 9001 and we supply explosion-proof vane anemometers according to ATEX.


Our manometers, anemometers, and tunnel ventilation sensors are installed worldwide in::

  • Process industries
  • Power plants
  • Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning
  • Clean rooms
  • Laboratories
  • Meteorology
  • Limnology
  • Tunnel ventilation
  • Volume flow in stacks
