The AccuBalance® Air Capture Hood 8380 is a multipurpose electronic air balancing instrument primarily used for efficiently taking direct air volume readings at diffusers and grilles. It features a detachable micromanometer which can be used with optional probes for increased flexibility in multiple measurement applications.

The AccuBalance® Air Capture Hood 8380 is a lightweight and ergonomically designed capture hood kit that combines multiple measurement tools into one package, offering durable and trouble-free operation. It helps create healthy and energy-efficient environments while meeting local codes, guidelines, and regulations for ventilation systems.

This product is only available outside of North America, and customers in North America can check the availability of the Alnor Balometer® Capture Hood EBT731. The AccuBalance® Air Capture Hood 8380 is suitable for HVAC commissioning, cleanroom certification, troubleshooting HVAC systems, and testing and balancing HVAC systems.

The package includes a 2 ft. x 2 ft. (610 mm x 610 mm) air capture hood/frame/base, a detachable micromanometer, a Swirl X Flow Conditioner, four AA size rechargeable NiMH batteries, a multi-country AC adapter, an 18 in. (46 cm) Pitot probe, two static pressure probes, 16 ft (4.8 m) Neoprene tubing, a wheeled luggage-style carrying case, NIST traceable calibration certification, downloading software, a USB interface cable, and a manual.

The AccuBalance® Air Capture Hood 8380 features an ergonomic design and ultra-lightweight for easy one-person operation, automatically senses and displays supply or return flows, saving time on the job, and back pressure compensation to ensure accurate readings. Multiple hood sizes are available for easy, cost-effective use across multiple jobs.

The detachable digital micromanometer accurately measures pressure, velocity, and flow to help meet industry standards, auto-zeroing pressure sensor reduces user-steps and saves time, automatic density correction increases reading accuracy, and the intuitive menu structure allows for ease of use and setup. The large graphic display with backlight offers an easy-to-use interface, displays up to five measurements simultaneously, and provides on-screen messages and instructions.

The micromanometer is programmed for multiple languages and includes an integrated Log-Tchebycheff duct traverse application that simplifies calculations. It also features Bluetooth communications for transferring data or remote polling and accommodates optional pitot, air flow (straight pitot), temperature/relative humidity, velocity matrix, or thermoanemometer probes for use in multiple applications.
