VAP3® VELOCITY AVERAGING PITOT TUBE
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.
INTRODUCTION TO TECHNOLOGY
VAP PITOTS FOR ANY INSTALLATION
VAP PITOT INSTALLATIONS IN ROUND DUCTS
VAP3® 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. The standard profile of pitot is used in any duct with a diameter of 72" or smaller. For larger ducts, the VAP-XL pitot can be used. VAP pitots are perfect for clean air or for air with particulate.
VAP PITOT INSTALLATIONS IN SQUARE/ RECTANGULAR DUCTS
The VAP3® Pitot can also be utilized in Square/Rectangular duct work. The pitots' insertion ports are mounted to the exterior of the duct and the pitots are then bolted to the insertion ports. The standard profile of pitot is used for installations where the short side of the duct is 72" or smaller. For larger ducts, the VAP-XL can be used.
