Pulse Air Permeability Measurement System

Pulse is a portable compressed air based system which is used to measure the air leakage of a building or enclosure at a near ambient pressure level (4Pa).

By measuring at a lower pressure, the system provides an air change rate measurement that is representative of normal inhabited conditions, helping to improve understanding of energy performance and true building ventilation needs.

The full Pulse system comprises of an air receiver and nozzle unit, an  air compressor and a touch screen control module.

  • Quick air leakage testing
  • Low disruption to occupants
  • Simple to operate
  • Accurate and Repeatable
  • Low impact on building fabric
  • BRE Global ETV Verified

New build
Simple, quick and accurate testing can provide  elective quality assurance throughout the construction, commissioning and compliance testing process.

Existing homes and retrofit
Low impact testing of  occupied homes can determine the root cause of mould, condensation and indoor air quality issues. Testing can also be used to determine retrofit strategies and to validate the quality and performance of delivered works.

Link multiple Pulse units to cost effectively carry out air permeability testing on large non residential buildings.

Pulse can be used in a range of other specialist conditioned environments such as cleanrooms, laboratories, refrigeration chambers, data centres and server rooms where quick, safe, non disruptive testing of enclosure integrity is required.
