A new turbinemeter is developed to be used as a ventilating rate sensor in livestock buildings. Starting from a previous sensor, which we introduced in 1983, several improvements were done tobecome a low cost air flow rate sensor with an acceptable accuracy of 60 m3/h in a range from 200 to 5000 m3/h and this for pressure differences from 0 to 120 Pa. This sensor can beintegrated in the climate control equipment of livestock buildings to improve process control.
