VAP - POWER APPLICATIONS

Inserted in primary, secondary, over-fired air and various other air flow mesurement applciations in the power industry, the VAP Pitot provides an accurate differential pressure output for precise air flow measurement
Pitot tubes are a time-tested method of measuring air flow in combustion ducts. Pitot tubes are easily installed, are highly cost-effective, easily maintained and can be inserted into almost any duct configuration including primary, secondary, tertiary and over-fired air ducts to name a few. Although pitot tubes do require upstream and downstream straight duct runs to operate most accurately, they are a very cost effective way to manage boiler trim controls and to maintain control over the fuel-to-air ratio in almost any power generation application.

Below are a few applications for the VAP Insertion Pitot that serve as examples of how the pitots are mounted and installed in the duct work on any power plant or generating station. If you have an application, contact us today.

INSTALLATIONS - ROUND DUCT



The VAP Pitot is easily installed in round ducts for accurate air flow measurement of any process air flow
VAP Insertion Style pitots can be used in either round ducts or in square/rectangular ducts. When used in round ducts, the insertion ports are typically beveled to fit the curved exterior of the duct wall and can be inserted into any duct smaller than 72" in diameter. Just a few of the applications for the VAP Pitot's industrial applications are listed here:
  • COMMON APPLICATIONS

  • Combustion Air
  • Primary Air
  • Secondary Air
  • Over-Fire Air (OFA)
  • Separated Over-Fire Air (SOFA)
  • Tempering Air
  • Vent Line Flow
  • Seal Air
  • Stack Gas Flow

INSTALLATIONS - SQUARE/ RECTANGULAR DUCT



The VAP Pitot is easily installed in square and rectangular ducts for accurate air flow measurement of any process air flow
The VAP Pitot can also be utilized in Square/Rectangular duct work when the straight upstream and downstream duct requirements are met. Just a few of the VAP Pitot's Industrial applications are listed here:
  • COMMON APPLICATIONS

  • Combustion Air
  • Primary Air
  • Secondary Air
  • Over-Fire Air (OFA)
  • Separated Over-Fire Air (SOFA)
  • Tempering Air
  • Vent Line Flow
