Air Flow Meters for Green Building Applications in the HVAC Industry

Fox Thermal Air Flow Meters for Green Building Applications

In order for a structure to qualify as a green building, the entire life-cycle must be environmentally responsible and resource-efficient. This not only includes the operation of the building, but also the design, construction, maintenance, and demolition. The idea of this concept was brought about to reduce the overall impact on human health and the natural environment by:

  • Efficient use of utilities like water and energy
  • Protecting employee health
  • Reducing pollution and waste

One of the most well-known goals of green building is to attain energy efficiency through a reduction in energy consumption. This can be achieved for HVAC systems is to have a heating or cooling system that is run efficiently through continuous air monitoring of duct systems to account for leaks and inefficient zones.

Air flow meters by Fox can be configured to operate with building automation systems through a variety of communication options. Alarms can be set for allowable flow ranges and temperatures to alert operators if those measurements are out of range. These features can easily help identify leaks or hot/cold zones in the system so that maintenance procedures can be employed to help resolve the issues.

Fox offers a variety of products that can be utilized for the HVAC industry. Take a look at our Products Comparison page to get started, then Configure the right Fox Flow Meter for your application.

Fox Thermal Instruments strives to design and manufacture the most innovative and reliable thermal mass flow meter products to our customers. All Fox meters measure mass flow rate and are available in insertion and inline models. Fox models FT1, FT2A and FT3 are mass flow meters and temperature transmitters providing isolated 4-20mA and pulse output for flow rate, and a 4-20mA pulse output for process gas temperature or a second flow rate output.

Fox flow meters are often calibrated to measure air flow. Please review the product features for Models FT1, FT2A and FT3 for further information about our thermal mass flow meter products.
