Application Manual for Airflow Measurement Stations

AMCA International has reaffirmed AMCA 600-06, Application Manual for Airflow Measurement Stations, which provides important points to be considered when designing or specifying HVAC and other applications in installations requiring airflow measurement stations (AMS) for use in temperatures from -30 C to +120 C (-20 F to +250 F), pressures to 250 Pa (10 in.

AMCA International has reaffirmed AMCA 600-06, Application Manual for Airflow Measurement Stations, which provides important points to be considered when designing or specifying HVAC and other applications in installations requiring airflow measurement stations (AMS) for use in temperatures from -30 C to +120 C (-20 F to +250 F), pressures to 250 Pa (10 in. wg), and velocities to 28 m/s (5,500 fpm).

 

The AMCA 600-06 manual is intended to assist designers and users with proper application, performance considerations, selection, and limitations of airflow measurement stations. This guide provides an overview of permanently installed airflow measurement stations and their application. Such information is not readily available in current texts on HVAC or ventilation system design and will help designers to avoid typical problems, including incorrect location, inappropriate measurement range, mismatched accompanying instrumentation, AMS incompatible with the intended application, and the like.

 

All AMCA publications are available at www.amca.org/store/default.aspx
