Insect wind tunnels create a physical model that simulates space in the field and can be used to monitor in detail the flight behavior induced by pheromones or other odorants. Insect wind tunnels can be applied to the study of insect chemical communication behavior and are currently widely used to determine the flight behavior of insects induced by pheromones or host odors and to study insect flight control mechanisms.


Highlighted Features:

  • Push and pull front door makes putting insects and odor resource into tunnel quick and easy, reduce experimental error

  • Push and pull front door can save a lot of room for later cleaning

  • The wind in tunnel is continuously variable. The wind tunnel is made from special material in special manufacturing technique, which reduces the weight greatly, thus reduces the later maintenance and improves the safety

  • The probability of turbulent air flow in the main area of insect wind tunnel can be effectively reduced by using special sheet to smooth air flow at the inlet of insect wind tunnel

  • The use of special structure and sealing materials, effectively improves the overall system sealing, and reduces the internal noise, and isolates external noise.

  • Use insect isolation net at the air inlet and outlet to prevent insects from entering the air purification system and exhaust system, and reduce the maintenance workload after the experiment.

  • All the electrical equipment is integrated in one control box, easy to operate
