Testo 440

Dubai, UAE, 7 August 2018: Testo 440, an Air Velocity and IAQ Measuring Instrument, launched by Enviro Engineering earlier this year, has sold over 2,500 units across Europe, the Middle East, GCC region and Asia.

Speaking on this milestone, Ali Hayatgheybi, General Manager, Enviro Engineering General Trading LLC, said: “Testo 440 is a comprehensive Air Velocity and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) measuring instrument, the body of which can be attached to any of the probe heads that come with the Testo probe system. Within seconds, a user can switch between measuring IAQ and determining the volume of air flow in a duct.”

According to Enviro Engineering, the manufacturers of the instrument, Testo SE & Co. KGaA, is a Lenzkirch, Germany-based company, which has over 90 international partners and distributors all over the world, including Saudi Arabia and Oman.

Elaborating on the complexity of the instrument, Hayatgheybi said: “The instrument works as an anemometer, manometer, thermometer, hygrometer, an air quality meter, turbulence meter and a lux meter. With an internal memory of up to 7,500 measuring protocols, the instrument has 75 probes available which are categorised on the parameters they measure. For instance, the temperature probes can measure the temperature in liquids and semi-solid mediums, while the humidity probe is meant for measurements in rooms, ventilation ducts, laboratories and industrial exhaust air. These are a few, in addition to the others, such as velocity probes, comfort probes and pressure probes.” According to Enviro Engineering General Trading, the instrument has a low-start up speed of 0.1 m/s, which makes it ideal to measure laminar flow in clean rooms.

Highlighting a unique feature, Hayatgheybi said that Testo 440 is the first key-controlled instrument, which is equipped with flexible and interchangeable digital probes. He said, “The concept of having this product around, is to reduce the clutter and simplify things for the user.”

Elaborating on how the product best fits an HVAC target group, Hayatgheybi said: “The instrument is for those who need a solution with maximum convenience for carrying out different measurement activities. It will benefit contractors, facility managers, consultants and construction engineers working in the HVAC sector.”
