Shortridge Instruments, Inc.
developed the analog
FlowHood in 1974, and
invented the line of unique
electronic digital readout
AirData Multimeters in 1984,
providing direct readout of
air flow, velocity, pressure
and temperature. The
rugged, reliable field
zeroes and automatically
corrects for the density
effects of barometric
pressure and temperature.
Readings in English or
metric units. All calibrations
certified NIST traceable.

One to two week
turnaround on calibrations.
|AirData Multimeter for Every Application
Shortridge Instruments, Inc., offers five different
levels of AirData Multimeters. The entry
level model CFM-88L reads air flow, temperature,
and absolute pressure, and comes
complete with an 8400 FlowHood kit. The
more advanced meters may be used with a
FlowHood, but also read velocity and differential
pressures, including static and velocity
pressures. The powerful model ADM-880C
provides true datalogging functionality with
a 2000 reading memory, recall of each time
and date stamped reading, and the associated temperature and pressures
recorded for each reading. The average, sum, minimum, maximum,
and standard deviation may be viewed for each of the 25 user selectable
memory groups. Readings may be downloaded directly to a
computer or printer.
ADM Kits – Complete Solutions
AirData Multimeter kits include industry
standard pitot tubes, static pressure
probes and tubing. The ADM-880C, 870C
and 860C AirData Multimeters also include
two proprietary probes which make
air balancing faster and easier. The AirFoil
probe is a single point velocity probe with a
straight shaft design for easy duct insertion.
The VelGrid is a 16 point, velocity averaging
grid, which is useful for exhaust hoods, cleanroom
filter outlets, laminar flow workstations
and large filters and coils.
HDM Kits Provide Complete Solutions
The HDM-250 HydroData Multimeter is designed for efficient, accurate
pressure and temperature measurements of nonpotable water.
This meter functions as a compound pressure gage, simultaneously
measuring the high side and low side pressures, along with the differential
pressure, and displaying each of the readings in sequence. Any
mix of readings may be stored for later recall. The HDM-250 kit supplies
key accessories for water pressure measurement,
including a Valve Network Panel,
hoses and a variety of brass fittings.
FlowHood Tops for Every Application
Standard FlowHood top sizes supplied with
FlowHood kits are 2'x2', 2'x4', 1'x4', 3'x3' and
1'x5'. Two standard sizes may also be ordered
for use with slotted diffusers, 5.25"x47" and
5.25"x60" and two standard sizes are offered
for Direct Inflow Measurement (DIM) on
cleanroom cabinets: 8"x24" and 10"x24". Custom
top sizes available on request.
