Welcome to MetAir
MetAir is a leading supplier of inflatable balloon including meteorological balloon, weather balloon, sounding balloon, advertising balloons. We also provide variety of parachutes such as round parachute, square parachute and sounding parachute.
Today, atmospheric information is most often gathered by height-finding radar, remote sensing by earth-orbiting or stationary satellites, and aircraft instruments, with weather balloons augmenting the data. Meteorological balloons are used in the measurement and evaluation of mostly upper atmospheric conditions. Information may be gathered during the vertical ascent of the balloon through the atmosphere or during its motions once it has reached a predetermined maximum altitude.
MetAir supplies meteorological balloon, weather balloon, sounding balloon from 10g to 2000g. These balloons are produced by rotational molding of natural rubber. Their uniform wall thicknesses prevent premature blowouts, and they are ozone resistant. Reinforced necks allow use in strong winds without tearing.
Speaking of drifting back to Earth on a parachute, there is another type of sonde designed to do exactly that. It is known as a "driftsonde." It is often lifted into the atmosphere by a weather balloon and, at a designated altitude, it is released from the balloon on a parachute. As it drops back into the lower atmospheres, it sends information back to the weather balloon.
The parachute consists of three major components: canopy made of orange/red coloured polyethylene film, cotton shroud lines and orange coloured plastic spreader hoop. A spreader Hoop is equipped with an elastic hanger with D ring for general use.
