    Buy a static pres. tip for you manometer, drill hole, stick tube in and read pressure.

    Don't have a tip. ...use a small piece od 1/4 inch copper tube and just insert the tube about 1 inch into the duct.

    As for airflow what do you really want to know? Actual CFM at discharge or actual BTU's of your evap. coil?

    Velocity = 4005 * (square root) of Velocity pressure

    CFM = area * Velocity

    Do you have the fan performance data for the piece of equipment you are working on?
    Have you set up a Google alert for Carbon Monoxide yet?
