GSKIN U-Value & Heat Flux Measurement Kit

Quick Overview

GSKIN U-value Kit are a plug and play solution to allow for the remote measurement of U-value (W/(mK)), heat flux (W/m²), and 2 temperatures (°C). The kit combines a GSKIN heat flux sensor with a custom designed miniature MSR logger and two external temperature sensors on 1 & 5m cables. The logger has an internal memory for up to 2 million readings and can be left to log the data, or in a live operation mode for a real time investigation. Each kit consists of a logger, sensors, USB cable, carry case and software. The logger is configured with the calibration data for the individually supplied sensors.

U-value is used to show the amount of heat loss in a building element such as a wall, floor or roof. It is also referred to as an ‘overall heat transfer co-efficient’ and provides a measure of how well parts of a building transfer heat. A high U-value indicates a poor thermal performance of the building envelope, whilst a low U-value indicates a high level of insulation. They are used as a way of predicting the composite behaviour of an entire building element rather than relying on the properties of individual materials.

GSKIN Accessories
3.5g Tube of Thermally Conductive and Electrically Insulating Thermal Paste. Operating temperature range -50 to +130°C, thermal conductivity 9.0W/(mK). Ideal for applications where pressure is applied to fix the sensor and will provide a very strong thermal coupling as paste will adapt to the surface inhomogeneities.
or call us for a quote
Thermally conductive and electrically insulating thermal glue. 2 x 3.5g tubes, operating temperature range -40 to +150°C, thermal conductivity 7.5W/(mK). Ideal for applications requiring additional mechanical stability.
