Do you need to keep a protected area clean and free of contaminants?

Rooster Pressure Monitor

Maintaining a pressure difference between adjacent rooms or areas is extremely important for healthcare, pharmaceutical, clean manufacturing, veterinary, and animal facilities. It helps to keep protected areas clean and free of contaminants. For these critical environments, the Rooster Pressure100 with color, touchscreen display measures and displays differential pressure, temperature, and humidity. Audible, visual, and remote alarms indicate potentially unsafe pressure conditions in the space.

The Rooster’s display module is typically mounted near an access door, in a controlled room, with the pressure sensor mounted above it. Using flow-through technology to measure differential pressure in a range of -125 to +125 Pa (-0.5 to +0.5 inch H2O), the Pressure100 is calibrated, temperature compensated, and compatible with air and inert gases. A door switch can be wired into the binary input to detect when a door is open, and the occupied status input permits you to change pressurization alarm setpoints to “unoccupied” levels remotely. In addition, with an analog output proportional to differential pressure, a fan or damper can be controlled to achieve proper airflow for the protected space. Other features include:

  • Red/green/yellow color-coded background for easy identification of room pressure status
  • Intuitive, easy to navigate menu with on-screen messaging
  • Logs data for differential pressure, relative humidity, temperature, door status, occupied status, and alarm status

The Rooster Pressure100 is the best value pressure monitor for critical spaces. It will make a positive impact on the health, safety, and success of your organization, and help with USP <797>, USP <800>, and FDA 503a/b compliance.

ASHRAE continually maintains its standards and released an updated edition of ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities, in 2021. It details guidelines for environmental control in healthcare facilities to keep patients, workers, and visitors safe. The standard defines pressure relationships according to how a space is used, as well as room air exchange rates and temperature/humidity ranges.
