Lindab UltraLink system for providing very accurate data on airflow and temperature in HVAC systems
UltraLink is described as an ‘HVCA speedometer’ that provides incredibly accurate information on the flowrate and temperature of air in a duct. Airflows down to 0.1 m/s can be measured, enabling VAV systems to have higher turndown ratios and save more energy. There is no obstacle in the airstream, making for easier cleaning/timesaving, less pressure drop and systems that are more energy efficient. Tests at a test institute showed less than 5% measurement uncertainty with air velocity down to 0.5 m/s and less than 10% down to 0.1 m/s. 27 UltraLink units have been successfully installed in a PowerHouse in Norway.
