The PMA-2008 Pocket Mining Anemometer is the second generation of our battery-powered electronic anemometer for use in underground mining. Still small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, the PMA-2008 anemometer makes taking ventilation readings even easier than before! 

Battery powered and small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, the Pocket Mining Anemometer is specifically designed for use in underground mining and is certified as intrinsically safe by MSHA*.  The new PMA-2008 anemometer adds an audible signal, to indicate when the 60 second count has started and ends.  Also, the LCD can now be programmed to display in metric.

Rubber covered push-buttons select between (a) 60-second Counting mode and (b) Feet-per-minute mode.  

Watch where you are walking, instead of staring at your wristwatch.  With the push of a button, the PMA-2008 Pocket Mining Anemometer automatically takes a 60 second reading.  It can also be stopped for partial readings of feet-of-air.  An audible alarm informs you when the count starts, stops and at 15-second intervals.

Designed for the rigors of a mining environment, the pocket anemometer is so well sealed, it can be submerged in water.  If dropped into a puddle or sump, it floats.

No adjustments or calibration are required.  After approximately 100 hours of use, the impeller assembly easily slides out for replacement.  This is all that is required to ensure precise readings with the Pocket Anemometer.

Feet per minute mode allows for immediate checks of airspeeds behind line curtains, on long wall faces, over conveyor belts, or anywhere air flow must be verified.

Every PMA-2008 Pocket Mining Anemometer comes with its own storage case 
and braided lanyard. A padded nylon carrying case with room for a replacement battery and impeller is an available option.  Free up some space on your tool belt and put your old anemometer and leather pouch in the mining museum!

Finally, there is an easier way to take air flow readings in underground mines.  The result of years of research and development, the patented PMA-2008 Pocket Mining Anemometer is small and lightweight, yet rugged and water resistant, able to withstand the harshest mining environments.

(a) In 60-Second Counting mode, simply walk the PMA-2008 anemometer across the entry; automatically stops counting after 60 seconds.  (b) For quick spot checks, Feet per minute mode provides a moving 3-second average of airspeeds in feet per minute. 

Units: 60-Second Counting mode - feet (ft), meters (m)  Feet-per-minute mode - feet per minute (fpm), meters per second (m/s).  

Minimum/Maximum Speed: 60 fpm (0.4 m/s), 9999 fpm (9999 m/s)
