Pneumotach Transducer 1.67 L/sec – animal

pneumotach transducer
Part #: SS50LA

This flow transducer is for animals such as medium-sized dogs and includes a detachable flow head (RX237F) and a differential pressure transducer (SS40L).

One of the problems that has been encountered with pneumotachographs is condensation from expired air. This can be prevented by fitting a non-return valve and measuring only inspiration or alternatively by heating the flowhead, but viscosity errors may arise which, in the first few breaths especially, preheat the inspired air most uncomfortably. In this range of flow heads, the problem is approached from a fresh angle. By mounting a fine stainless steel gauze in plastic rings, the thermal inertia is greatly reduced. The gauze therefore rapidly equilibrates in temperature with passing air and condensation is minimal.

Details

Compatibility


  • Lightweight and robust
  • Linear and direction sensitive
  • Twin, non kink silicone tubing
  • Economical, sensitive and robust
  • Easily cleaned, disinfected or sterilized

The good stability with low weight of the RX237 Series is from machining the flow heads from acetal.

Synchronize Participant Video with Physiology Data

Video is a compelling addition to physiology experiments. Researchers need to understand and observe the behavior of the participant, identify problems during the experiment and get a general sense of behavior and how that behavior relates to the data. If data looks wrong or bad, video can help researchers figure out why.
