Transitional Flow Effects on Flow Meter Measuring Accuracy

November 22, 2011

Vortab flow conditioners are widely recognized and applied in flow metering applications to correct the unpredictable effects of flow profile shifts caused by limited straight-run, upstream pipe geometry changes and load changes. These unpredictable flow profile variations are neutralized as they pass through the Vortab flow conditioner to present a consistent outlet flow profile to the flowmeter, resulting in accurate and repeatable flow measurements.
