I'm a software developer, who wants to create a monitoring system for an industrial airflow system. The airflow of the system is huge - between 15 and 20 cubic liters per minute. Here is my problem, the strongest airflow sensor which could be connected to a microcomputer, is with capacity 300 SLPM which is 0.3 cubic liters per minute.
In summary I have the following questions:
- Is there a way to use such a sensor to measure airflow which is much much bigger?
- Maybe there is a way to decrease the airflow in a parallel connection where to put the sensor, measure it, than do some calculations in order to infer the real airflow?
