How can you accurately determine the airflow and velocities in a duct?
Are your current airflow measuring devices accurate and calibrated?
The Forward Reverse Pitot Tube can be used to determine the amount of airflow and velocities in a duct. This probe can be used for many applications, some typical tests are as follows:
- Measuring and balancing secondary airflow to wind box and burners
- Measuring primary airflow to each pulverizer
- Calibrating airflow measuring devices (airfoils, venturis, flow nozzles, etc.)
- ID and FD fan testing (Fecheimer may be preferred for turbulent areas)
Our Forward Reverse Pitot tube evolved from the Stauschiebe or “S” type pitot tube. Our probe is machined from a 304 Stainless Steel billet. This machined billet head is tig welded and leak tested before shipping. Each Forward Reverse Pitot tube is calibrated in our wind tunnel against a standard calibrated pitot tube. They are fabricated in standard lengths from 6′ to 14′ in 2′ intervals. However, custom lengths can be ordered to meet the customers needs. The Forward Reverse Pitot tube can also be fabricated with oxygen and temperature capabilities to eliminate the need of a boiler exit probe in this testing area.
