VAP: TECHNICAL INFORMATION

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, you will find a variety of documents, including manuals and installation guidelines for the VAP Flow measurement pitot.
