Flow Profile Optimisation for Accuracy
The Sierra Instruments’ Flow Conditioning Plates represents an economical solution to the problems commonly associated with monitoring flow installations where long, straight runs of piping are not available.
The flow conditioning element effectively eliminates velocity profile distortions, swirl and temperature stratification in the gas stream. The flow conditioner creates a uniform velocity profile by means of two stainless steel perforated plates. The FlatTrak has been designed to work in schedule 40 pipe (for other scheduals contact Procon) with 150# flanges, the front flow conditioning screen is sandwiched between two 150# flanges, along with two 1/8” gaskets (gaskets and flanges are supplied by customer).
The flange mounting bolts serve to center the screen in place and the flow plates reduce upstream piping diameters to less than three diameters after most common flow disturbances. Sierra Instruments have carried out extensive testing that has demonstrated that the FlatTrak virtually eliminates the effect of piping conditions with fewer upstream diameters than any other flow conditioning technique. Flow plates may be purchased separately for general flow conditioning or they may used with existing Sierra insertion meters if calibrated as a set.
- Creates uniform flow profile at economical price
- Maximizes flow measurement accuracy in constrained piping environments
- Reduce upstream and downstream diameters
- Proven Dual-Plate technology
