This is a Salvaged Blue Windmill Anemometer that was salvaged off of a once working vessel. This device was designed to measure wind direction and wind speed. It is typically mounted at the highest point on the vessel, such as a ship’s superstructure or a sailboat’s masthead. Whether you want to decorate the inside of your house or the exterior, this anemometer is a wonderfully unique solution!
The windmill anemometer and its propeller both spin freely.
Prop Diameter: 14″
Base Diameter: 6″ with 5 mount holes
Weight: 26 lbs.
Quick History on This Type of Anemometer
A vane anemometer thus combines a propeller and a tail on the same axis to obtain accurate and precise wind speed and direction measurements from the same instrument. The speed of the fan is measured by a rev counter and converted to a windspeed by an electronic chip. Hence, the volumetric flow rate may be calculated if the cross-sectional area is known.
