  The PMA-2001 Pocket Mining Anemometer is a technological advance in ventilation reading.  Battery powered and small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, the Pocket Anemometer is specifically designed for use in underground mining and is certified as intrinsically safe by MSHA*.  The PMA-2001 makes ventilation readings easier and faster than ever before.

Rubber covered push-buttons select between (a) 60-second timed linear feet mode and (b) moving 3-second average speed mode. 

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.

Watch where you are walking, instead of staring at your wristwatch.  With the push of a button, the PMA-2001 automatically takes a 60 second reading.  It can also be stopped for partial readings of feet-of-air.

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.

Take your leather pouch off of your tool belt.  The PMA-2001 includes its own case and braided lanyard.  Now, you can free up some space on your belt, and put your old anemometer in the mining museum.

*MSHA Approval No. 2G-4125-0

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-2001 is small and lightweight, yet rugged and water resistant, able to withstand the harshest mining environments.

(a) In 60-second mode, simply walk the PMA-2001 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.
