Venturis have a long history as a dependable device for flow measurement. Utilizing basic physical relationships between velocities and pressures in pipes, venturis provide a stable, highly repeatable differential pressure signal that can be tailored to any application.
Wyatt Engineering’s venturi flow tubes are differential-producing flow elements that accurately and repeatedly measure the flow of liquids or gases in closed, full-pipe conditions. Each venturi is designed to meet the client’s specific application requirements.
Wyatt Engineering offers an array of accessories to complement our primary flow elements, including D/P transmitters, secondary piping, flange sets and flow straighteners
Flow nozzles are often used in flow measurement due to their reliable performance and tolerance to extreme process and environmental conditions. They offer advantages over orifice plates in that they require less upstream piping and incur lower permanent pressure loss. Accuracy can be sustained indefinitely since there are no sharp edges to wear.
Orifice plates are used in flow measurement or pressure reduction due to their simplicity, ease of installation, tolerance to extreme atmospheric and process conditions, and predictable and reliable performance. Orifice plates are the most common method of differential pressure and are used in various industries, particularly in the hydrocarbon market.
