Testing equipment we use:
Vane Anemometer: Airflow test, 8 meters per second or 1500 ft per minute or higher.

This ensures that we are getting the proper amount of airflow to properly exhaust the air from the dryer. The better the airflow, the more lint gets extracted from the line.
Dryers in mobiles homes must be mounted to the floors, also cannot be vented to the underneath.
