HBE APPLICATIONS

The High Beta Engineered allows for extremely accurate air flow measurement in duct work where no straight runs are available, including both square and round ducts in power plants
The High Beta® Engineered flow conditioner is a proprietary-designed flow-conditioning device that is designed to minimize pressure loss while straightening flow in combustion air flow ducts with relatively few or almost no straight duct runs upstream and/or downstream. Eliminating cyclonic, turbulent, and reverse flow at the point of measurement, the High Beta optimizes flow conditions so that the accompanying VAP Pitots can obtain their maximum accuracy.

Below are just a few of the many applications for the High Beta Engineered. With a variety of applciations in the power industry including a variety of combustion installations, such as primary air flow, secondary air flow, and overfired air flow measurement, the High Beta is a perfect solution for the irregular duct work often found in power plants.

HBE INSTALLATION IN PRIMARY AND TEMPERING DUCTS




The High Beta is easily installed in round and square ducts for accurate air flow measurement of primary and tempering air flow
The High Beta Engineered (HBE) can be used for a variety of applications in order to accurately measure the air in Primary Air Ducts, Secondary Air Ducts and Tempering Air Ducts. When used in multiple locations simultaneously, proper control of the air can be monitored and can be properly ratio-ed with the particular burner fuel being utilized in order to maximize the efficiency of the burner. In this instance, Primary Air and Tempering Air are being measured simultaneously.

HBE INSTALLATION IN CYCLONE BURNER AIR DUCT




The High Beta is easily installed in cyclone burner inlets for accurate air flow measurement
Special application specific versions of the High Beta have also been designed. One such application specific design is the Oval Beta designed for use in the very wide but short duct work found in Cyclone Burners in Coal Fired Power Plants. A damper can be installed prior to the Oval High Beta installation and, in conjunction with the flow signal from the High Beta, the air flow entering the Cyclone Burner can be managed and controlled.
