Flow Conditioner Reduces Flow Meter Errors
Press release date: March 19, 2010
A new (patent pending) flow conditioner that resolves turbulence issues to achieve a fully developed velocity profile with minimal head loss (K=.579) is being introduced by Westfall Manufacturing Company of Bristol, RI.
The Westfall Model 3000 Flow Conditioner mounts directly into a piping system and features four leading tabs and four anti-swirl plates that suppress turbulence and swirl to produce a fully developed velocity profile within eight diameters downstream. Suitable for any fluid, this compact flow conditioner is ideal for increasing flow measurement accuracy; especially when using ultrasonic flow meters.
Minimizing turbulence regardless of flow conditions or mal-distribution upstream, the Westfall Model 3000 Flow Conditioner is available in sizes from 1/2" to 120" dia. and measures two diameters long. Easy to install and requiring virtually no maintenance, it can be fabricated from PVC, FRP, 316 SS, with or without Teflon® coating, and other engineering materials.
The Westfall Model 3000 Flow Conditioner is priced from $295.00 to $30,000.00 (list); engineered to the application.
