Good For Low Wind Situations

We are using this in a sour field (H2S) and it is crucial part of keeping our folks safe when there are low wind conditions. They work very well and provide the wind direction information we need in those situations.

Ordinary tube windsocks fail in low wind detection:

Ordinary windsock problems.Lower wind speeds are not visible in older style tube windsocks because the air moves into the opening and moves out of the opposite end before there is enough force to lift and fill the sock’s main body. Once the tube windsock is full, additional wind speed is not accurately portrayed because now the sock is full, and any additional force exerted within the sock or along the sides and body, are minimized by the air force within the windsock.

Wind Tracker Windsock System Detects Low Winds:

Windsock diagramMulti directional movement:

The patented pivotal harness rotates without the aid of ball bearings or other devices The Glide Plate rotates 360 degrees within the Glide Collar by wind force alone. This is important because there is no added friction to artificially slow down or force to create a spin effect.
The Wind Directional Windsock System patented pivotal harness allow the animation of the wind by using wind load factor or the flag, and a multi-directional movement made possible by our patented pivotal harness system. For the first time you can “see” the wind. Air moves “against” the fabric not through it and therefore the flag/sock will be moved in a direction relative to the force and direction of that wind.

Animate the wind at any speed:
The patented harness keeps the Wind Tracker windsock against the wind and creates a full resistance so the slightest breeze creates visible movement in the flag. As the air currents move against, and along, the flag it rises and falls with side-to-side movement as the wind changes directions. When the flag attempts to “dive off”, it is pulled back into the winds force by the harness cords. This patented harness keeps the flag in position and allows it to animate the wind at any speed, and at all times.

Side to side movement detects wind shear.The harness cords allow the side-to-side tilting motion of the flag which not only detects wind shear and variability of direction, but also creates an animation, and visual recognition of wind variability at a glance.

Detects Low Wind Speed and Direction:

Now for the first time there is a windsock that animates the wind at or below 1 mile per hour. Ordinary airport windsocks were not designed for today’s modern commercial use. Production delivery,  and storage systems are complex in their methods of operation and locations.

Reliable Workplace Safety:

A reliable safety windsock system needs to demonstrate the wind movements, direction, and speed to be effective in any operation where contaminates can be moved along by the wind.

By the time an ordinary old style tube windsock “fills up” it is often too late. The antiquated open end design makes it necessary for large volumes of air to enter and exit the sock. At low wind speeds the old style airport windsock hangs limp unable to demonstrate the direction or speed of the wind.

Off Site Contamination & Controlling Drift:

Liability associated with off site contamination is becoming a big issue in farming, landfills, and other industries located near schools, hospitals, etc. The containment of an airborne contaminate is difficult, if not impossible in many cases. Depending on the wind speed and direction a material can be “carried along” rather than being dispersed.

How To Choose The Correct Airport Windsocks and The Evacuation Safety Windsock

What is the most critical element when choosing a windsock system?

If the windsock cannot detect wind at or below 3 – 6 miles per hour it can actually be detrimental to rely up it for field safety. The ability to detect wind movement at low wind speed is a critical factor. Another consideration is wind movements at and in the lane of evacuation. Wind shear can be a huge factor in some applications. When adopting a safety plan that incorporates an Airport Windsocks and The Evacuation Safety Windsock System be sure to include those features.

Maintenance of the system should be considered when selecting a windsock or windsock pole. Windsock frames, hoops, cages, and metal poles can rust, jam, or present problems with electrical conductivity.

Ease of replacing the windsock is often overlooked. The replacement should be able to fit every model with or without a windsock pole.

Why Choose Wind Tracker?

This new revolutionary windsock system designed by Wind Tracker not only indicates direction of the wind but the variables and wind shears are now visible. Worker safety is dependent on low wind speed detection, and the Wind Tracker is the only “airport windsock” designed specifically for this purpose. Most ordinary tube types cannot alert you or field personal to the dangers of material movement when air current is low.

Wind Direction is Multi-Directional

The wind moves in several directions at one time depending on the force of the wind, obstacles, proximity to the ground, weather conditions, and other natural and man made factors. Therefore you need a windsock system that can detect the winds movement during an evacuation, aircraft landing, loading and unloading operations, etc.

Unlike old style airport windsocks only the Wind Tracker can show erratic air movement and wind shears. Incorporate the Wind Tracker into your emergency evacuation planning.

Are you storing or using chemicals, concerned about drift control, involved in safety operations and need to know the wind movement and direction at speeds even below 3 miles per hour? Then the Wind Tracker Windsock System™ is the best choice. One glance tells you the direction and speed of the wind.

What Is New About The Wind Tracker™ Windsock?

Wind Tracker’s patented action allows for six directional movement. It can even demonstrate wind shears to the observer. This is a great benefit to helicopter pilots. The Wind Tracker Windsock System is now used worldwide in hundreds of applications. There are no metal parts to rust, no hoops to wear out, and will not tangle or wrap on the pole.

The Wind Tracker™ is ideal for use in emergency evacuation plans, and work site safety. It is reliable for field use in the detection of low wind movement. Installs at ground level, atop structures, on existing windsock poles, and is ideal for portable windsock deployment.

Just A Few Of The Windsock Customer Categories:

Wind Tracker Windsock System is now preferred by major Businesses, Military, Coast Guard, EPA, FEMA, Municipalities, Nuclear Power Plants, Heliports, Hospitals, First Responders, Cities, and Countries throughout the world.

Airport Windsocks, and The Evacuation Safety Windsock System

Does Your Windsock System Comply?

Airport Windsocks and Evacuation Safety Windsock systems are a critical part of any emergency evacuation plan. The wind can be a friend when it disperses materials, but low winds can move toxic materials a great distance. Direction and speed of the wind is important. if you cannot determine the wind movement you are only guessing, and guessing is not a good word when it comes to safety.

The Wind Tracker animates the wind at low speeds. and using our wind speed charts you can calculate the travel distance of the materials being moved along by the wind.

We often think of the immediate area and personnel in that area when it comes to an accidental or intentional release. That of course is a primary concern. But, we also may need to think about off site contamination. nearby Schools, Businesses, Playgrounds even a mile awy could be effected depending on the materials and type of release.
