Scentroid presented the new wind tunnel SW60 for sampling odours in the NOSE2014

windtunnelsw60 scentroid   Scentroid, a very active Canadian manufacturer has presented in the recent NOSE 2014 in Venice their new wind tunnel, the SW60. This very light weight wind tunnel for sampling odours is made of aluminium/composite panels and it has a coating inside of PTFE. In addition, the wind tunnel comes with an internal air supply and tubing with an internal rechargeable battery to do the surface sampling in passive sources easier.

   The wind tunnel is based on the lindvall design with a few new features to make it easier to use. The package includes the hood, pump, tubing and a battery integrated in a very small case. The hood is made with two walls, so that it prevents the inside part of the wind tunnel to be damaged by a bang against a wall for example.


   Together with the SW60 there is a wind speed meter to monitor the process of sampling. During the recording we could not test this feature cause the wind tunnel had the floating parts and the wind was blowing underneath, however, it does look a very nice feature to monitor the process of sampling.
