Minneapolis Duct Blaster with DG-1000

The development of the Minneapolis Duct Blaster has revolutionized performance testing of forced air distribution systems for builders, HVAC contractors, and utility DSM programs. The Minneapolis Duct Blaster is a calibrated air flow measurement system designed to test and document the air-tightness of forced air duct systems in both houses and light commercial buildings.

  • The Duct Blaster can be used to test existing or new construction, testing ducts even before before drywall is installed.
  • New DG-1000 gauge makes testing faster and more accurate.
  • Enter area measurements and let DG-1000 do all testing calculations, for real-time results.
  • The lightweight Duct Blaster fan weighs just 7 pounds, and delivers enough air flow (1,500 CFM) to test the leakiest duct systems.
  • Quick and accurate air-tightness measurements from 10 to 1,500 CFM.
  • DG-1000 pressure gauge includes Wifi to connect to phones and tablets for remote monitoring.
  • Energy Conservatory produce code: DUCT-KIT-001

DG-1000 Gauge

The DG-1000 manometer is bringing new levels of speed and accuracy to duct testing. The intuitive touchscreen makes test selection visually based, resulting in less confusion and yielding a faster setup. The DG-1000 will even warn you when the hoses are connected incorrectly. With the ability to enter area and volume measurements, your test results will display live on screen, without the need for additional calculations back at the office. A full array of connection options let you connect the DG-1000 to your phone, tablet through Wifi, or to your computer through USB or Ethernet for full automated testing and data recording. The new TEC DG-1000 has twice the range of the DG-700, up to 2500 pascals (10 inH2O). And accuracy is simply the best of any manometer in the industry—an amazing 0.9% across the entire range. All DG-1000 gauges come with a two year, NIST traceable calibration.

Duct Testing

The Duct Blaster fan is connected directly to the duct system in a house, typically at a central return, or at the air handler cabinet. With the remaining registers and grilles temporarily taped off, duct air-tightness is measured by either pressurizing or depressurizing the duct system and precisely measuring the fan flow and duct pressure. Duct air-tightness measurements are used to diagnose and demonstrate leakage problems, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify compliance with duct leakage standards such as California's Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
