What Does Velometer Mean?

A velometer is a device used to measure the speed of air in a given area. Often, the amount of air flow in the environment is directly proportional to the degree of corrosion experienced by a metallic structure and the drying rate of protective paints that are used to coat such structures.


Corrosionpedia Explains Velometer

Velometers are a type of accelerometer with an analog signal integration circuit. It provides a voltage reading that is proportional to the velocity of the air in an area. It provides benefits that other similar devices may or may not possesses, such as:

  • Able to measure a wide velocity range [0–6000 ft/min]
  • Temperature and velocity measurement capabilities
  • Volumetric flow measurement capability
  • Data logging supporting software
  • Multiple measurement display
  • Probe extensions are available to acquire measurements in hard-to-reach or confined areas
