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.

 sesion06 juarez00  The management of odours caused by industrial emissions requires standarized and technically-proved methodologies for a correct diagnosis, allowing to assess the problem objectively and, therefore, for proposing the best solutions from an economical and technical point of view.
