VAP APPLICATIONS

Inserted in both air and gas flow ducts, the VAP Pitot provides an accurate differential pressure output for precise air flow measurement
VAP3® Pitots have a unique Velocity Averaging and Parallel Plate proprietary design. When inserted in air flow ducts, the VAP3® Pitots provide an accurate, differential pressure output allowing for precise air flow measurement or control of your process. VAP3® Pitots are designed for Superior Accuracy (SA) for clean air applications or plug resistant (PA) for heavy particulate-laden applications. The VAP3® Pitots can be installed in existing or new ducts or incorporated into flow-conditioning devices, such as the High Beta®, designed for short duct run applications with turbulent air flow or to obtain optimal accuracy. The VAP Pitot can be manufactured out of Anodized Aluminum, Stainless Steel or PVC for accuracy in nearly any 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 field. If you have an application, contact us today.

VAP PITOT INSTALLATIONS IN 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
  • Pneumatic Conveyance Systems
  • Industrial Drying Processes
  • Process Exhaust Systems
  • Scrubbers
  • Industrial Oven Vent Lines
