The YOUNG Multi-Plate Radiation Shield protects temperature and relative humidity sensors from error producing solar radiation and precipitation.  The multiple plate design provides a unique profile that blocks direct and reflected solar radiation, yet permits easy passage of air.  The plate material is specially formulated for high reflectivity, low thermal conductivity, and maximum weather resistance.  The shield attaches to a vertical pipe up to 2 inches (50 mm).  The compact size and weight make this shield ideal for use in many applications.

Model 41003 is designed for use with sensors up to 16 mm diameter by means of a universal clamp-type adapter.

Model 41003P-24 includes a 24 mm adapter for use with all YOUNG probes.

Model 41003P has a custom adapter to fit a sensor from 16 mm to 26 mm diameter (please specify diameter when ordering).

A variety of custom shield configurations are also available.  Please contact our sales department if you have a special requirement.
