VAP - POWER: TECHNICAL INFORMATION

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 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 is some sales literature on the VAP Insertion Pitot including cut sheets, product catalogs and some application information. If you have an application that you would like to discuss, please Contact Us today.
